grandmother clark

I wore this on Family Day (Presidents Day in the USA), which was spent with my family trying new restaurants and going to the TIFF Lightbox to watch the unauthorized Harvey Weinstein documentary (very insightful, go see it if you can). I haven't had a minute of downtime this break, I can barely believe I'm saying this, but I'm so glad I didn't go to the Carribbean as originally planned. On my break, I've been living in this coat, can you believe it was my grandmother's? I never got a chance to meet her, but I so treasure the things that were once hers. Also, this dress is everything I'm into right now, navy and black, velvet, and mixed patterns. I seem to collect Marc by Marc Jacobs pieces without the intent of doing so, but this is my absolute favourite so far.

Wearing my grandmother's coat, a Marc by Marc Jacobs dress, Dooney & Bourke purse and Zara boots.

  35. Liz,
    Your grandmère had marvellous taste. That coat is a phenomenal color, and has great cut. Which is great...since Toronto is once again plagued by evil fluffy white stuff. -_-

  36. Love the outfit! I adore that beautiful coat - you're so lucky to inherit something so unique...and something that today would run a pretty penny in a vintage shop! Enjoy it for the rest of this dreaded Canadian winter...

  43. I totally understand that collecting marc jacobs pieces, he's my favourite designer by far, although I can't afford his clothes. He's a genius. That dress really suits you I think, that contrast to your hair is beautiful.

  44. Tres chic, in Grandmother's coat.

  45. Love your grandmother's coat! The best clothes are always inherited/stole from family members, no?

    Accidentally collecting Marc Jacobs doesn't sound bad at all! Keep it up.

  54. how beautiful you look!
    and grandmother's clothes are the best, so full of earlier stories of dancing and meeting the boy that will be someone's grandfather soon..

    and please, come to germany, I can't wait to finally meet you outside of the blogging galaxy-
    as well I'll live in paris starting some time in september, maybe there's a chance for audrey, you and me to gettogether?
    that would be beyond everything.
