the elbow patch jacket.

i went crazy for elbow patches last year, and i still love them. even better when they are on a classic tweed jacket. this jacket from Patty's Closet [Windward Mall] is a great alternative...it looks like tweed but isn't tweed, making it do-able for the warmer temps we have here.

over the weekend, my friend and i hosted a small holiday shopping event with a few vendors...thirty-one bags, [oomph.], anuhea designs, island keepsakes & island sea salts. there was chocolate and cheese fondue among other things, and an avon beauty bar with tons of samples to try. after the event, we hung out for wine tasting and an amazing steak dinner.

asparagus wrapped with ham...so yummy!

  1. I'm a big fan of elbow patches too, but they tend to end up in the wrong place on my long arms! Your jacket is adorable though; I agree that elbow patches are best on tweedy pieces.

  2. You look stunning as always and I love the silhouette of this outfit. I think the patch give a bit of spice to the jacket and the color of the purse is stunning!

  20. Cathy French katieoscarlet@columbus.rr.com This reminds me of the jackets from the 80's that we all just had to have. This one, however is much more stylish and flattering.
