Traditional style advice to make your outfits more interesting is: add texture and/or shine. So today I am experimenting with a little of each, to liven up my classic black trousers. It’s a gorgeous Florida Fall today so I want to shine with a dressy/casual mix.
|Welcome to Visible Monday. If you want to participate, it’s so easy: just go to the bottom of this post for the how-to. Please be kind and leave a link to Not Dead Yet Style in your post.|
This nifty brocade jacket (similar) was thrifted in Greenwich Village for about $25. It’s by Albert Nipon, really well tailored and I love the cropped length. The knit top by CAbi (sim) is also thrifted, and the great AllSaints trousers were picked up last year in NYC. The silk art scarf (sim) is an old friend, and the boots are new and retail! (what!) by Børn. They are the darkest burgundy, not black. Love the look, and they did our seven miles a day walking in New York without a blister.
Ready for any adventure today brings, although if tradition holds that means wine and tempting snacks at Coasters Pub, watching NFL and
screaming cheering for my teams.
Now, let’s see what you’ve been wearing, Visible Women.

That is one radical way to mix and match Patti with the scarf and brocade jacket. Thank you for another link-up Party! Have a great week. xo Sabina

Loving that brocade jacket and the blingy buttons, Patti! Standing outside in a jacket without contracting hypothermia seems like a dim and distant memory in the UK of late.
A girl’s gotta to treat herself to a new pair of boots every now and then (I *might* have done the same after a beer or three over the weekend). xxx
Wow, What a steal! I love this jacket Patti, everything about it on you. The color, print, fabulous fit on you! The buttons are so pretty and special. I look for these details on clothes as well.
