WIW 1/21-1/28: New Fossil satchels x2, ink blue jacket, navy + orange

Here are some of the outfits I wore the past week. Since Angie dubbed me Queen Fossil, I decided to embrace my title and added a couple more satchels to my Fossil collection! Quick question--are the pants in 6-7 the right length or do they need to be shortened? Comments and suggestions welcome!

1. New Fossil satchels in orange-red diamond and black/silver/taupe chevron patterns!

2-3. Lafayette 148 caramel leather jacket from Nordstrom Rack
Banana Republic black/silver/bronze wrap dress
H&M black tank (didn't want to be too revealing since I was at work)
Fossil black/silver/taupe Fossil satchel
Gap brown herringbone tights
Nine West black knee high boots
Calvin Klein V necklace

4-7. Nordstrom Halogen black plaid wool zip moto peacoat
Nordstrom Only Mine V neck cashmere sweater in burnt sienna
Gap Perfect Trousers in grey (are these PPL or do they need to be taken in?)
Fossil red diamond satchel
Fossil Sasha pumps in russet (same color as the bag!)
Macy's leopard and gold necklace from Secret Santa Lisa

8. White House Black Market ink blue jacket
WHBM geometric print shell
Ann Taylor black skirt (this is from my ancient interview suit from residency interviews! I pulled it out for kicks, inspired by Lyn's recent interviews)
Clarks red T strap pumps
Red Fossil tote
WHBM silver and black pendant

And some MOTG outfits from last weekend:
9. Navy Forever 21 sweater
Bright orange AG skinny cords from Anthro
Apricot Converse All Stars
(DS matches me with the orange and navy! :) And notice his little Vans socks? And bookworm DD is on the floor reading)

10. Macy's red INC waterfall cardigan (is that the right term for it?)
Black H&M V neck Tshirt
Gap Always Skinny jeans
Red Converse All Stars

    You are definitely Queen Fossil Natalie! Gorgeous satchels. I think you're right in that the pants in #6/7 could use a wee bit of hemming...like 1/2 inch? I love the wrap dress in #2/3 - might have to check that one out myself since I'm looking for a new day dress for work. and of course, we all LOVE that jacket in #8. Looks like a lovely week Natalie (again!).

    You are queen Fossil! I thought about you while browsing the Fossil selection at my local department store yesterday.

    These are great! Love love love #8. Regarding the pants- the ones in #7 look too long to me, but I'm having a harder time telling in #6. Are they actually touching the floor in the back? If so, then I think they need to be shortened.

  • goldenpig replied 8 years ago

    The pants are hitched up to where they should be in #6, but they tend to slide down a bit to #7 as I wear them. So I am not sure how much to shorten them. I did notice the last time I wore this in the rain, the bottom of the hem was wet so I think it's a touch too long. I just have this anxiety about hemming my pants too short now that I know about PPL so I've been putting it off. I have a whole stack of pants and jeans that need to be hemmed.

    Shannon--the BR wrap dress is really old--like at least 5 or 10 years old. So you won't find it in the stores. :(

    You look so terrific in all of these! I think the pants in 6/7 need a little hemming but not much. I just adore those Fossil bags. I own three Fossil purses and love each and every one but those are utterly awesome!

    AHHH! FOSSIL! AHHHH! *seizure*

    Love #4, matching your awesome bag with the cami peeking out! Great!

    And who could NOT fall for #9 and 10's! true MOTG shots with your cute muchkins!

    What a great week, Natalie! So hard to pick things out. I ADORE that diamond patterned satchel. I love 1 and 8 the best but all are great. The orange jeans and red sweater are terrific. FUN FUN FUN!

  • Suz replied 8 years ago

    Oh my gosh, first can I hug your kid? SO cute!!

    But next I need to hug your bags! Equally cute!!

    the outfits are pretty darned great, too!

  • goldenpig replied 8 years ago

    Thanks for the advice! I will take the pants in for hemming when I get a chance. But it's hard to decide what heel height to hem them to. I guess that's why I've been wearing skirts and dresses so much lately!

  • Angie replied 8 years ago

    Queen Fossil does not disappoint! Those new bags are both just perfect for your style, and a superb signature look to boot. LOVE.

    The trousers in #6 and #7 look a little long. Perhaps shorten by half to 3/4 of an inch.

    And you are one adorable MOTG!

  • rae replied 8 years ago

    CUTE new bags! Love the prints you chose.

    The pants in 7 do look like they are dragging a little.

    Fun pattern mix in 2, and my fave is #9, with the fun top and yellow-orange combo on the bottom - not to mention your adorable mini me. :D

  • Lisa replied 8 years ago

    Great Fossil bags. Both work really well with the outfits you paired them with. And I adore your pink converse and matching cardigan, so fun! The trousers with the cuff do look a tad too long for PPL.

  • modgrl replied 8 years ago

    Fantastic outfits all week long! I can't believe you were still searching for a wrap dress when you had this stunning BR wrap in your closet already. It is gorgeous and just perfection with the caramel jacket. When I wear these kind of dresses I always pop a second base cami underneath. (http://youlookfab.com/2009/06/.....-you-cool/) They are teenie and not bulky under clothing. Just something to consider because I hate having layers under dresses.

    I love your new satchels! Just beautiful! I think you are flagged on Fossil satchels :)

  • Jonesy replied 8 years ago

    You look so pulled together and stylish! I love the new bags, and your color palette is perfectly *you*--you have really honed in on your style persona!

  • Heather replied 8 years ago

    Natalie, I am unfocused on everything else due to my blinded obsession by the orange cords!!!! L-O-V-E!!!!!

  • Carole replied 8 years ago

    The bags seemed fine until I saw them In your outfits, then they were KILLER! I love them both. I want one! All the outfits are equally fab! The pants do seem a tad too long and I what a fun shade for the Cons. What a cutey pie accessory in 9 and 10!

  • Gomy replied 8 years ago

    Loved the outfits, and satchels, but what loved best were the little ones in last two pics! Cutiepies! For another type of leather satchel, why not check out http://www.retrosatchels.com. They are handmade in England and both cool and practical!
