orange and green

02-22-10
vintage duffle coat, Gap jeggings, A.P.C. shirt, Jcrew socks, Coach purse, Rachel Comey platform clogs via Jeremy's

Two posts in a row wearing the same coat. Why? Because it's cold and I don't own very many coats! And man, I love this coat, best $3 I've ever spent on something that wasn't food. Does that make me boring? Sure, I'll take that. I haven't really been shopping in over a month (not including the jacket that my parents bought me for Chinese New Year or the random vintage t-shirt that I got at Painted Bird because it reminded me of one that my mom had) but there hasn't been anything new that I've wanted or needed other than new stationary or a desk plant. It feels nice to be content with your wardrobe without constantly wanting and needing more. I think I should probably get rid of more clothes but for now I'm keeping what I have with a few scattered exceptions.

Also, the post title reminds me of this one time 10 years ago in 7th grade when we were playing a trivia game in class and one of the questions asked for the school colors of some university that I can't remember so I said the first two colors which popped into my head: orange and green. No clue what I was thinking about but the boys in my class teased me about it for the rest of the year by shouting "ORANGE AND GREEN! ORANGE AND GREEN!" every time they saw me. Man, I forgot how much junior high sucked.

Oh, and the shoes. I bought these almost 90% off retail a month ago and I've been wearing them a lot (which you can tell by the love scuffs in the close up photo). Somehow I paid less for these than the worn pair that I scored at Buffalo Exchange but I really lucked out at the Jeremy's in Berkeley this time thanks to a friend who works there and texted me when they came in. I even saw the same pair at a local shoe store still being sold at full price. Seriously, if you haven't been to either location yet, go.

clogs!

ps. I'm also selling a brand new A.P.C. Madras dress (with tags) in a size medium...

Fashion Intel said...

Being content with what you have is a great feeling. That was definitely one of my goals for 2011 and I've been keeping to it.

Sue said...

Totally the best $3 for that beautiful coat! I'm so jealous of your vintage finds >~<

Aubrey said...

$3?!?!?! It's official. I hate you. :P

Michelle of The Feather Den said...

The coat's cute! So, you know, I HOPE you wear it more than once, haha. And I love the greeny colour of those shoes with the orange socks! Ahhh, colour clashing, I love it.

Steph J said...

That orange/green combination works so brilliantly well! The boys in Jr High obviously knew nothing about awesome colour combinations ;)

Also, I can't believe that coat only cost $3! You'd never be able to score that kind of deal where I come from, unless you spend the entire week salvaging through of Salvation Army and the likes...

Edelweissnyc said...

The shoes are great!

4th&fifth said...

Your shoes are fabulous. You're one lucky gal to have found them for that cheap!

Joy C. said...

Everything's really beautiful but I especially like your green shoes and hair (not green)!

Crystal said...

I have always loved orange and green together, though people always give me weird looks when I profess my love for this odd combo.

Ohmigosh, $3 for your coat!? Lucky you!

Adorable jeans, cool shoes. The orange socks look so good with the green! Good looking detail!

KellyM said...

The coat is super cute, nice and simple. If I were to post my outfit everyday, I'd be pretty much wearing the same thing; winter coat! Yours is classic and cute so I wouldn't worry about it at all.

Anonymous said...

I can't believe that your coat only cost $3. It looks so nice and pricey.

Ambyr said...

Love the mix in colors... great winter tones! And I love that you're wearing the same coat, I don't have very many either and I love finding ways to recreate my looks with the same pieces.
