One fuzzy sweater and one military jacket turned into one fabulous repurposed jacket that is sure to make a statement.
I removed the sleeves on both items at the shoulder seam, removed all buttons and the belt off the military jacket. Then sewed the fuzzy sweater sleeves to the military jacket at the seams and then put on new gold buttons. Finally Replaced the original belt with a gold belt.
I gave my jacket some street vibes by adding some cities id love to visit and on the back I tagged my city.
I was looking for a look not too far from my normal vibe. I really wanted the oversized/baggy look that is trending for fall. I found myself in husbands closet.
My husband’s closet doesn’t get the attention it deserves. He has structured shirts, warm sweaters and long blazers in his closet. This haul was so much fun that I ended creating 3 looks. Thanks to #FashionWeeks across the world oversized is the new fit.
His Hoodie – as an off the shoulder dress and a pair of ankle boot.
His Suit – As a suit with a bodysuit under in case I wanted an off the shoulder look. The pants I secured with a belt. Handbag is a custom #SBDesign
His Button down – Over a bodysuit, a pair of distressed jeans and a snake print sole clear strap sandal from @j0couture
Don’t forget the layered necklaces and a pair of chic sunglasses to complete your looks.

From my styling closet in Skokie, Il I sat with a glass of my favorite wine to watch a weeks worth of N.Y.F.W shows but don’t feel bad for me I enjoyed every second of it!
Big thanks to NYFW All Access App for giving me all the footage of the shows and to the amazing Claire Sulmers at fashionbombdaily who made me feel like I was in them New York streets as I watched her LIVE via Instagram throughout the shows.
Here’s some of my absolute favorites from this week’s shows that promoted boss babe vibes, inclusivity and body positivity as always I love to hear your feedback and keeps me going.
Pearls everywhere for fall I am borderline obsessed with adding them into my everyday looks. So, I pulled mine out of my jewelry box to think of ways to update my grandmas pearls and give them my #ExtraAF vibe.
The string of pearl you have been holding to all these years meets a gold rope chain and a jeweled necklace for that layered look.
I mean there isn’t anything wrong with the pearl studs that sit in your jewelry box but why not add some #ExtraAF vibes with drop pearl earrings?
