Closet Confection: Household Division




{Old Navy Peacoat, Gap Sweater, Forever 21 Skirt (similar), Juicy Couture Necklace, Timex Watch (similar), Henri Bendel & Street Vendor Bracelets, Vintage Bally Handbag, Uniqlo Tights, Banana Republic Boots}

Furthering my education in menswear, Eric informed me that this particular blue and red stripe pattern on my new necklace is properly called a household division stripe… something to do with the uniforms worn in the British armed forces.  After receiving this new tidbit of knowledge, I suggested he let me borrow his matching watch.  He happily obliged, and my outfit was complete.

    Ooh boys are so nice! (sometimes – ha.) How great that he had a fabulous watch like that for you to borrow! I love your plaid peacoat so much, I’m currently googling red and black ones. So cute and perfect for winter.

    Are you serious this jacket is from Old Navy?  I love Old Navy but I definitely missed out on this Tartan jacket, it’s gorgeous!

    I love this outfit!  I’m a big fan of your site and even mentioned you on a recent post on my blog.  I like how you usually wear your watch and bangles on one hand and I have started doing that.  Thanks for the inspiration!
