Fall 2009 Shopping | Part Two: Tweed

I've been wistfully daydreaming about my college days - or at least the romanticized version of college with musty libraries, afternoons spent reading British literature, and professors lecturing in tweed sport coats.

Instead of splurging on a semester's tuition, I'll get my collegiate fix with one of these tweed pieces.

(pictured clockwise, starting with upper left)

Spiegel, Signature Relaxed Tweed Collection: Blazer, $49
Burberry, Tweed Check Hat, $195
Charles by Charles David, Curtsy Tweed Pump, $144.95
DKNY, Grey Wool Tweed Belted Coat, $174.99
Charles by Charles David, Sharpy Tweed Pump, $135
Vivienne Westwood, Draped Tweed Skirt, $255


  1. I feel the same way about college. You described in perfectly! And what a great post you put together! I want those Charles David pumps....actually, I want it all :)

  2. I love tweed! and I want those Charles David pumps.

  3. Crystal: I do have to be honest, however, I don't miss the creaky auditorium hall desks and poor heating and cooling systems in any of the humanities-related buildings. I always wished the English and Journalism classes could be taught in the lush bioscience halls.

    Abigail: I especially adore how versatile tweed pumps are. Maybe we can both justify a pair?

  4. I love, love, love tweed!

    I'm glad you like the shoes I chose for my post. If only they weren't $1,000, I'd have to buy a pair!!!

  5. Candi: I'll have to search for an appropriate substitute for those shoes. If I find a pair, I'll definitely let you know.

  6. The Charles David pumps remind me of these Kate Spade ones: http://glammed.blogspot.com/2009/10/nudes-for-autumn.html


Thanks for commenting - each one means a lot!
