Were you ever that younger sister who was forced to wear jeans that were just a bit to short for you or a top that did not fit you right because it was passed down from your older sibling? The oldest of two brothers, I never experienced such a love-hate relationship. However, recently I inherited a closet full of hand-me-downs from my aunt’s sister who is as much of a shopaholic as I am, except not on a student’s budget. Instead of ripped up jeans and scuffed up Converses, I received three garbage bags full of items from Ann Taylor and J. Crew. From Ralph Lauren dresses to coats that I cannot wait to wear this fall and winter, I hit the jack-pot. I advise you to befriend an older acquaintance so once they lose the metabolism they had as a 20 year old, they will think of you when they clean out their closet!
Here, a chic short black dress from Banana Republic reminded me of Holly Golightly called to be styled with pearls. This twill coat from Ann Taylor is perfect for autumn. The look is completed with shoes by Plomo.
