If I were a jazz musician...

Beanie- American Apparel, Coat- BCBG, Brooch- Vintage Find, Denim- Gap, Bag- YSL, Shoes- Coach, Sunglasses- Michael Kors, Watch- Michael Kors, Bracelets-Coach


      Many of you may not know this but for quiet a long time I was a total band geek (not nearly as cool as the jazz musician in the mural behind me). I played baritone saxophone and I loved that huge hunk of metal to pieces! My classmates would refer to me as Lisa Simpson, but whenever someone asked who inspired me to play sax I would always respond with: "the blue M&M of course!" These days I eat more blue M&Ms than actually playing the sax but who knows, that could change in time!




      I wore this particular outfit on a casual walk thru downtown Santa Cruz, my favorite local spot. It has been too cold to go out with out a hat lately and I've been wearing this American Apparel beanie constantly. I think I own this style in three colors, so I highly recommend making a purchase if you are in the market for a new cold weather item. The BCBG coat I have on was a holiday gift from my sister, Claire. She knows me well and found this stunner at a consignment shop and I couldn't be more happy with the classic piece. 



Yours,
Nico
