Happy Fashion Week & A New Column

In honor of New York Fashion Week, I’m hereby debuting a new fashion column on this blog – Tina Couture. It will document Tina, the lovely receptionist at my day job, who just dazzles me with the ensembles she puts together.

On Friday, for instance, she wore this:

Tina - 2.7.14

When she first wore the pewter booties to the office, I actually ran-not-walked to DSW  and purchased my own pair. They go with everything and I highly recommend a pewter shoe for anyone’s wardrobe.

The above photo doesn’t quite capture the awe-inspiring creation that is this outfit, so I’ll break it down for you so you can steal this look:

Tina for TorieandTristan

I found this scarf on Etsy – Tina’s was a marled olive scarf with a few shades of green in it, but I couldn’t find a marled one that I liked.

I love love love these earrings. Hammered metal is classic, and this particular brand makes hollow versions of chunky styles so they don’t weigh down your lil earlobes.

I have a feeling that the denim shirt will turn into a classic wardrobe staple; at least for the next several years. This bargain version is from Old Navy; I personally love ones from Madewell, American Apparel and J. Crew.

The belt is from Target and I think Target does a fabulous job making cheap belts look exactly like the $50+ versions at places like Banana Republic and J. Crew.

The pants are from H&M and are no longer available, but I found similar ones here. Image from here.

I’ve showed the shoes in gold for the sake of being matchy-matchy; the pewter ones looked silver on the website but are far more neutral in real life: Zappos

SO! I hope you’ll all join me on the Tina bandwagon and stay tuned for her next killer look.
