Welcome to the Jungle


My sister and I visited the Como Conservatory in St. Paul this week, and I indulged my orchid obsession by sniffing-out every species I could find among the exhibitions and taking a snap. I like to use them for sartorial inspiration, as well as obsess about adding them to my collection (once I am confident enough to feel like I possess enough species-specific knowledge not to kill them that is.)

We also did some thrift and consignment shopping (surprise, surprise), and just look what I picked-up! It appears as though I may be highly suggestible (but then, you already knew that). This Michael Kors sheer chiffon hoodie is something that was so unusual, I just had to have it...though I would probably not normally put a white tank top under it, I had to use what I had on hand in my suitcase.

I love the lush, tropical print, and just as I said about another top I bogged about last week, it reminds me of the Hermes Spring 2014 collection, which I love dearly.

Me in a hoodie. Who'd of thunk it?

  1. Have you been to Fashion Avenue in Edina? (I guess they have a store in Wayzata now as well) Not exactly "thrift" but some high end pieces for reduced amounts.....I just consigned some items there!! Ha Ha!!
    Enjoy your trip!

  3. Hello and lovely amusing blog!

    I need your help--based in the US (New England) and off to Ireland for a fortnight in the latter half of April. For some reason, even if I have been somewhere or even lived there (used to live in the UK) I have a packing brain freeze when deciding what I should stuff into the bag for a climate I am not currently experiencing. The goal as ever is to pack lightly....and not to end up unpacking at the other end amazed at what I opted to pack (that proves to be the opposite of what I feel like wearing) and did not pack (as a committed thrifter I have a lot of wonderful things...not to mention that I could make an emergency trip to any of a number of great thrift stores in the next week or so should I need anything). So could you take on the challenge and post a what-to-bring-to-places-with-madly-variable-temperatures when one will be doing all sorts of things from a bit of walking in the hills to pubs to strolling in Dublin? Many thanks!

    1. In late spring , expect anything from summery weather (rare) to cold, blustery early spring rains (more likely). Layers are key. A few that work together in easy to wear colours. I like to bring cashmere for a warmer layer, as it is thin and packs pretty well (if its good quality).

  5. That is a beautiful top - more like a blouse than a hoodie. Beautiful colours too. I would have snapped it up myself!
