Update the Boucle Suit for #TBT !

Happy Thursday Loves! This is my very first #TBT.! Y0u know I adore boucle, and I wear it often. I am taking you back to 2013, late Spring, but the outfit I show, I would wear today; well perhaps last week- today I would need an overcoat!

The is a boucle dress from eBay London, with a matching jacket. I love the classic look, but I think the colorful pattern, as well as the shorter hemline give this look a more contemporary feel. I adore CHANEL and love their bright pieces for resort that are mixed and matched with abandon. Those are on my wishlist, but will not make it into my closet. Maybe I can have something custom made… Hmm..

I made the necklace years ago, using south sea and freshwater pearls, and pave balls of peridot and smoky topaz, and some gold findings. Here is another shot, with a different dress, that shows the necklace better. Also a throwback, as this dress now resides in my daughter’s closet.

I had fun with this photo, this is not my bike! My blue glasses and Dolce and Gabbana, and my black crocodile kelly is not Hermes, it is from Lederer’s on Madison Avenue, but was also an eBay win.

Boucle; either you love it or you don’t? Where do you fall? Let me know in the comments section!

To shop this look, go to my polyvore page- the links are all there!

Here is the set that I created for Boucle Inspiration!

I hope your week has gone swimmingly. It is so hard to get back to a work routine after the holidays, but alas, here we are perched on Friday’s doorstep! Have a great day!
