What I Wore Today: 10/03/2012 (Swayze)

Swayze outfit: teal and navy dress, fair isle blazer from Anthropologie, leather clogs with faux fur trim, studded bottom bag

For me, fall fashion is about rich colorscozy knitslayering, and

pattern mixing

This lovely Fair Isle blazer is part sweater part blazer, so Ryan has taken to calling it my Swayze. I think it's a really special piece and I love that the knit alternates between stripes of right-side-out and wrong-side-out Fair Isle. 

There's something so beautiful about the exposed underside of fabric. It tells a story of secrets exposed, vulnerability, and the craftsmanship that goes into a garment. Also it looks cool.
