After a rather lackluster and exhausting week (who am I kidding? Month,) I found myself without inspiration, motivation. My eyes hurt. I can't focus on anything and I wonder how I'm going to get dressed let alone put together a fashionable outfit. I'm also more indecisive than usual. Hell, it took me all night to figure out what color to paint my nails. (In case you're wondering I settled on an opaque nude like I usually do.)
For the first time in ages, a fashion magazine was mailed to my house. I haven't subscribed and my husband swears he doesn't know where it came from but either way I was happy it came. I picked up the copy of Lucky magazine and began to read. I was pleasantly surprised. I'm not sure if it’s changed or if I have - but I really enjoyed the content. (I didn’t use to.) In some ways it reminds me of my blog - a guide to shopping and fashion.
The post is an ode to Lucky magazine and the great editorial I saw on tweeds. Since I don't copy content, I went on a quest to find my very own favorite tweed pieces. This is what I came up with.
I found hats!
Hats are making a HUGE comeback! (And I don’t mean baseball caps!) Thanks to fantastic milliners like Philip Treacy catching the eye of celebrities such as Lady Gaga, stores have begun to take notice and have started carrying a great variety of hats. My personal favorite this winter are cloche hats.
(Vintage Loves Tweed Women’s Hat available @ FreePeople.com, $148.00)
I found jackets!
(Boucle Tweed Jacket available @ Maxstudio.com, $228.00)
Purses by Burch(es)!
(Tory Burch Reva Tweed Clutch available @ Bergdorf Goodman, $210.00)
And sweaters for lounging!
This wrap is perfect for snuggling up on a chilly day.(Setting, cabin in the woods, light snow fall outside, glass of red wine in hand, fireplace warming the room.)
(Boucle Wrap Jacket available @ Gap, $89.50)
Skirts that won't hurt (your budget) !
Rachel Roy is great because she makes quality products in all price points. This skirt is perfect to wear to the office with a blazer or out with friends paired with heels and a tee shirt.

Plus wowser great trousers!
(In doing this post I realized the people behind the Alexander McQueen brand must love tweed as much as I do! As I looked for fabulous tweed items to share, I noticed many of them were available at AlexanderMcQueen.com.)
(Alexander McQueen Chevron Tweed Cigarette Trousers available @ AlexanderMcQueen.com, $449.00)
And booties for cuties!
I love these booties! Imagine wearing these with an eggshell colored lightweight mid-calf length sock and a black suede mini skirt. (And a shirt. If you want.)
(Alexander McQueen Tweed Faithful Boot available @ AlexanderMcQueen.com, $719.00)
In the end, I’m glad I finally got “Lucky.” Turns out it was just the cure I needed.
