Edgy. Threaded together. Unlikely elements stitched together. The result should be chaos, but there is none to be found. It is merely the change of seasons, and the unpredictable forces blowing in and around. She’s been touch-and-go, but she is here: Autumn.
I am also describing my thrifted handbag made with bits of velvet, printed corduroy, ultra suede and vegan leather. I bought this bag last year for $4.00. I like its throwback style; I could see it making an old statement with an outfit without pattern.
I enjoy updating my basic skinnies from F21 two years ago with some nice heels, and a long boho ultra suede vest. My pointelle beret in dove grey tops the outfit and keeps my hair in place as mother nature tosses wind at my face and shoulders.
I add RX sunglasses so I can see my way down the street, My neighborhood is so busy, that my vision must be sharp. Passerbys armed with phones, plugged into the ether, hurrying towards “somewhere” pose a hazard. Truly, they do. Why is everybody looking somewhere else? I am in the moment, am I alone here?
The horns are blaring. Loudly. Traffic is congested. Chill out, I want to say. OH well, at least my fringes are blowin’ in the wind.
What I am Wearing
Outfit details! Maxi ultra suede vest by Top Chic, sim Asos, mine at my local fav , De Janerio. RX sunglasses from Eyediologie. Patchwork bag, thrifted, but similar here from Kohls, and Coach. My beret is from last year, but I adore this from Urban Outfitters!
Very beautiful boho look! The texture of your purse is so fun.

I love the way in which you feel the fashion Elle! You always have a great ideas for posts and pics! You look superbly gorgeous!
Wait a second. $4.00? Wow. What a deal! I love it. Your whole outfit minus the pumps looks very much like something I would have worn back in the day. I probably would have worn clogs. You look terrific. I’m so glad you checked in with me because somehow your blog disappeared from my feed. And I wouldn’t want to lose you. Oh no! You comment was so sweet. You are absolutely right. Blogging is not all cupcakes and pussycat bows but when things get difficult, fashion can be a wonderful diversion. Much love.
Perfectly said, a wonderful diversion. I am so glad you have me back in your feed again. I switched from WordPress to SquareSpace, it was a bumpy ride, but I like this platform so far.What fun I had on intsagram last night!Much Love, Elle
oh, and yes 4 tiny dollars, I am a good little shopper.. 🙂

Elle,As usual I’m impressed about your purchasing skills and I like the cool outfit you created with the fringed vest.And honestly I don’t always understand the behaviour of people …xx from Bavaria/Germany, Rena
Thanks Rena!Most people are so preoccupied, it is sad I think, they are missing out I think of the beauty of everyday life..xx, elle
This has got to be one of my most favorite looks so far. That vest is to die for and you pull it off like no other. I seriously remember giving my mom a bag just like that one, several years ago (wonder if she still has it). Great look!
Thanks Trina, I was iffy about it in the store, but I loved the color.Even my daughter likes it, and it shall be hers soon I think!xx, Elle
I admire how your look completely changes from a post to another, but you always keepman extremely feminine and metropolitan attitude!!
Thank You so much Dan! I have a lot of fun wearing whatever suits my for the day (and sometimes it is just yoga pants and sneakers!).One of my hope is that my blog is interesting for the sheer variety of my wardrobe. MyDailyCostume is indeed m name, each day is new is my motto! Kisses, sweet friendelle
