Wear It: Flannel + Flair


If whatever you do on New Year’s Eve foreshadows what you’ll do for the rest of the year, I’ll be trying to fancy up old resale clothes with over-the-top cheap jewelry. Sounds about right.

Nick and I watched the ball drop from a lumberjack-themed house party complete with outdoor tarp tent. I consider this 10 steps up from a bourgie Uptown club party with all-you-can-drink shitty champagne and just one step down from being asleep in my bed. So it was good.

Obviously flannel is pretty much required at such an event, but I decided if I didn’t get to dress up I’d still go dripping in gold.

I got my flannel shirt at Buffalo Exchange, a resale shop down the street that I frequent weekly, and my black flair jeans are Paige Denim from JT Posh, a more upscale consignment shop where I find lots of good work dresses.

I, like most American women, went through a bit of a statement necklace phase not too long ago, but in the last year or so I’ve been feeling like they just never look right–too big and overbearing–so I stick to little gold chains. For NYE I brought out the biggest ugliest cheapest Forever21 costume piece I had… I think it did the trick.


I know the high-low flashy jewels + field worker girl combo is nothing new, but I like it not just for costume parties and have been tempted to wear it to the office. Is this stupid? Thoughts?

    Yes! It’s exhausting seeing another head to toe banana republic ootd accessorized with a longchamp.
