Retail Holiday Season Survival Kit





Outfit details:
Tabitha Tyndall Coat (an amazing reincarnation of a Beth Bowley coat from 2008)
J. Crew (Factory) Ruffle Zip cardigan (available online on weekends only, or try a similar style here or here)
Anthro's Cartonnier Stable skirt (sold out online--try stores or this similar cut here or similar color story here)
Frye Dorado Slouch boots (very yummy lookalike here and a look for less here)
Lucky Penny Pure Bred tote (same vibe here and here)

This is year three of working retail during the holiday season for me. I really love the extra energy that pumps through the store starting the Friday after Thanksgiving. Being someone that loves to shop, I get really excited for other people to buy things, especially at discount. I get the same little rush as when I'm splurging on something myself. As a result I am most often the enabler friend that votes yes on friends' purchases. More likely, I vote for two. And yeah, I'll get one too.

This year I pulled together a new uniform for surviving the busy buzzy season--a very special piece + a warm and yummy knit + a pair of my expanding Frye boot collection. Today's special? An excellent upgrade to my vintage equestrian print skirt that I've been hoarding for weeks. I couldn't resist back in August (maybe it was even July?!), since the perfect slice of the print was centered on a skirt my size.


  1. OK you always wear the coolest prints. and glad you're back :)

  2. Every single piece in this outfit is amazing in their own right, but I think the skirt really stole the show. I have seen this skirt online but was scared to buy it, because I don;t wear these shades very often. So I'll live vicariously through you. :)

    I am a new reader of your blog and just discovered it via weardrobe. Would love for us to stay in touch if you would not mind. I am on blogger, twitter and Facebook.

    Come say Hi when you have some time.

    Love from Toronto, Canada

  4. love the outfit ... the skirt & coat are amazing!

  5. Every piece is so wonderful :) We know you've been plenty busy, but I'm always anxious for your new posts! Love, love, love your style, Jinah.

  6. Love this whole outfit! The skirt is amazing!

  7. First of all, where was this photo taken? I love the backdrop!

    Secondly, you have the best footwear! I really need to get me some Frye boots ASAP!


  8. Sweet Laundry--I actually snapped these after close in the fitting rooms at work! I work for an independently owned boutique and the owners have these amazing salvaged doors and shutters as their fitting room cubicles.

  9. I love the horses on your skirt. I don't like horses in real life but seem to love them on clothing, and your skirt is no exception.

  10. love your coat. you wear it very well.


Bonjour y'all! Thanks for stopping by.
