I recently found this jacket at Sin City Antique Gallery. The best part, the original tags were still on it. The gold color and the brocade pattern make it a perfect fall jacket.

I decided to mix both masculine and feminine details in today's outfit. The structured jacket and boots qualify as masculine, while the ruffled top and sparkly trousers are feminine. These are some of my favorite trousers. They are gray wool with metallic thread throughout. They are subtly shiny.

Ruffled top and necklace - Ann Taylor Loft

My husband has been out of town at a conference this week. He was home when I got home from work, so I was able to snap a picture of today's outfit. I liked the color combination, but I think I would have liked the outfit better if the blazer was shorter. Still unseasonably cold, so I pulled out my fur cuff boots. I plan on wearing this alot this year as they are uber warm!

I like to think that I do a pretty good job of getting rid of clothing when I haven't worn someting for a while (6-12 months generally). My husband my argue differently based on the quantity of clothing in my closets. But if something doesn't fit anymore or it hasn't been used, I donate it so that others may get some use. However, I cannot seem to part with this jacket. I haven't worn it in many years, but every time I try to part with it, I can't. I love the suede collar and the different tweed patterns throughout. Since boyfriend blazers are back "in" I thought I would give this baby a spin during fall.
Can you guess how long I have had it? I think it is about 15 years old! Easily one of the oldest pieces of clothing I have in my closet. Do you have anything in your closet that you just can't bear to part with? How long have you had it?

I bought this flower pin recently and when I was putting my outfit together last night, I decided to try pinning it to the hem of my skirt. However, after taking the picture, I moved it more to the side and away from the center of the skirt.
