DKNY and The Moschino Vest



fly on the wall
Photos by Alyssa of Runway Chef

A little while back I did lunch with one of my faves: Alyssa of Runway Chef. We did some quick outfit shots for each other while we were at it. :) Check out my photos of hers here.

My inspiration for this outfit went like this:
  1. My PFF (that's Poshmark Friend Forever) jessicarabbit13 found this insane Moschino vest for me.
  2. I need to be wearing this vest All Of The Time.
This is a pretty typical consultation appointment-day outfit for me. Ronnie and I have this great balance: she's got the 30+ years of tag sale experience and I've got the super fashion-forward aesthetics. The kind of people for whom we want to do sales will want to hire us when we dress to our strengths. I do Ronnie's wardrobe with/for her and we dress her super classic with rich colors to offset her high end jewelry. So I can go quirkier!



I'd never wear this on a picture, marking, or sale day, though. Too much light color begging to get filthy when we start moving stuff around and this heel height isn't conducive to moving heavy things on plush carpeting.

Can we talk about the perfect "serendipity" of always finding things at tag sales that turn out to be on trend later? I don't even have to try to do this. These drapey camel coats are officially trending everywhere and I've had mine ready to go since August. This one is by ever underrated DKNY. It is perfection. Alyssa, incidentally, has it in white in her Poshmark closet. That makes a statement. :)

Remember in my last outfit post I mentioned this MCM bag would be in this post? It is so freaking versatile. Obviously it makes a perfect hands-free backpack (because it's a backpack) but I actually might prefer it as a wrist/hand bag. And it's still a backpack when I need it to be. How many times can I say backpack in one paragraph?

Yeah, this outfit is also total sass from the back. Love the bold black and white stripe mixed with the less competitive brown and white in the skirt. I have plenty of tush but cinching a vertical stripe is a great way to trick the eye when you don't have one (and draw attention to it when you do ;) ).

Le. Sigh. Jess knows me too well. (She says she asks herself if Adina from Ab Fab would wear it and shows it to me when the answer is "yes.") Who else has a vest with a rocking sheep on it? Probably not that many people and that's part of what really good fashion is all about for me.

  1. This outfit is total sass from all angles, never mind just the back! And seeing your DKNY coat is making me so sad that mine is now too big ;(

  2. I'm sad about yours, too. I talk it up to everyone every chance I get (as you can see, haha!). Thanks, partner-in-sass.
