New York's "Look Book"

'm fairly certain that being featured in New York Magazine's "Look Book" is a goal for much of the city's population. I have a fairly concise mental outline of how I would describe my look. But that's neither here nor there.

Once again, I was not selected, but lip-synching, self-described "muse" Andre J was. While the afghan is certainly notable, I am more interested in the vintage Lanvin shades.

It turns out that vintage Lanvin shades are available at one of my favorite sites, PatriciaField.com. They also feature vintage styles by Burberry, Valentino and Versace. ALL FOR $60. LOVE.



Color: Rose
Cost: $60
Retailer: PatriciaField.com

Astonishingly priced vintage finds aside, my favorite part about P.F.'s site is her return policy:
Sunglasses Return Policy:

We understand the need to try on glasses, therefore all sunglasses are returnable within two weeks of purchase for a full credit card refund, minus the cost of shipping.
How perfectly reasonable! Guess who's getting herself some new flash?

Vau! only??? 60?? So cool.
These reminds me about mary-kate & ashley olsen and old-styled french women. Stylish!
No, it's not me on that pic :) But I would definitely mention if I post pic of my own!
And I totally love napoleonic look. Already have half a wardrobe that style ;) That's why I'm sad nobody knows anything about these jacket I post! Hopefully I'll find one... Somewhere.

F.M. said...

I'm a fan of all shades that dominate AT LEAST three-quarters of the face. Fashion victim? Mais non. Just protecting my face from the er, sun.

The Burberrys are stunning.
