Old Levis - New Peacoat

Peacoat: J Crew // Jeans: Levis // Sweater: J Crew // Ankle Boots: Michael Kors (Try These, or These)// Scarf: Vintage (Try this!) // Sunglasses: Quay

The top right shelf of my closet happens to be a very special spot.  It's not, as one might think, the resting place for keepsake garments or old love letters. No, the top right shelf is reserved for my priceless collection of vintage Levi's. Until recently the crowning pieces in my collection have been frayed and destructed 501 styles (seen HERE and check this throwback HERE!). My new favorite is this 517 style that's a little bit cropped and a little bit flared which feels perfect right now given the rise of 'cropped-flares' this season.

My favorite way to style vintage jeans is with classic pieces that say 'POLISH'. A camel turtleneck (my most important cold weather staple) and leopard booties are a great start, but the addition of a creamy J Crew peacoat, an Hermes inspired silk scarf, and my coolest cat eyes takes me straight to the street of Paris in the Sixties (if only in my imagination). Je suis tres mod, mon amis... tres tres mod.
