Brocade and Bows

In honor of the arrival of Christmas, I am dressed up like a present, complete with bow! The J. Crew Giant Bow sweater is the perfect sweater to wear in honor of the season. I am wearing it with my Jade no. 2 pencil skirt for a touch of color.

The jacket I am wearing is an example of "shopping your closet." I hear this phrase thrown around frequently and thought I should give it a try. I have a lot to "shop" from in my closet, so why not take advantage of this opportunity? This brocade and faux fur jacket goes way back. Approximately 10 years back, I think.  I was in college when my mom bought it for me from Anthropologie. I found it when I was going through my closet and thought, "this is pretty cool. Why haven't I worn this?" I guess in a way it is like finding a Christmas gift, just in time for the holidays!
