Channeling Jessica Alba

There's just something about the "tough girl" look that I love. I like to dress myself depending on my mood, and sometimes, nothing fits the bill like an outfit a la Angelina Jolie's vampy chic look. Don't get me wrong, I still love to dress preppy, but when I saw this page of People's Style watch mag awhile back, I knew I had to find these smokin' motorcycle boots:

People Style Watch - Fall 2006

It took me months to find the perfect pair, but I did manage to find this hot pair of motorcycle boots by Cole Haan...and they were on sale!

A cozy sweater to stay warm during this cold spell - it's a bit bulky, but so nice for keeping my warm:


Without the sweater - just a simple black top:


Skinny jeans - Guess
Black T-Shirt - Gap
Wrap Sweater - Banana Republic
Motorcycle Boots - Cole Haan

Hi - I love this outfit especially the sweater but I didn't see it on the Banana Republic website. Is this from early Fall 2006? Thanks! - Amethyst

I looked for boots like these as well and found something but not as close to the jessica Alba boots as you did.

Those boots are so awesome!!! I'm trying to have more self control these days when it comes to shopping but seeing those boots (on sale) is making it very very hard.

Enid, did you post a picture of the ones you found?

FFCL - it was a big hunk out of my monthly budget, but im hoping they're worth it

I can't find the sweater! :-(

Hey Amethyst,

I bought it at on sale at Banana, so they may have taken it off the site. Your best bet is to see if you can call or go to your local store and see if they can do a store search. I think I threw away my tag so I can't get you the item # unfortunately :(

It's a long wrap sweater with a tie, snap closure in the front, cable knit...it was on sale for $54.99, but it may be a different price now. Sorry hun...wish I could help you more.

Sweet Amethyst! What a great hubby you have...hope you enjoy the boots as much as I do...I almost wore them today, in fact! I just bought a dress at Gap to go with my boots, so I'll have to post that soon, too.
