I received many e-mails while I was away and for that I thank you.  I had to take a break from this space to re-evaluate my entire life.  A lot happened in 2016 that made me a bit wiser.  I wasn't sure if I wanted to continue doing this or not, but I am going to forge ahead because I was recently inspired to return to blogging in my own way and on my own terms.  This means that this space may get a bit more personal and include other parts of my life.  I am going to be revamping the website and it will not longer be called Fashion Snag.  I hope you enjoy the changes that are coming.  I don't care how popular or unpopular I am in the blogging world.  I just want to be me and not worry about the numbers.  It feels good to be back so far.  The jeans I am wearing are the only new thing in this look and you can find them here as well as in the link underneath the last photo.

This look pretty much sums up what Pendleton is all about and I think the song suits the outfit perfectly as well.  You can subscribe to my YouTube channel to see all my videos.

Have I told you how much I love A.L.C.?  I am slowly building a nice collection of A.L.C. pieces and this leather pleated skirt is my latest addition.  As soon as it made its debut on Shopbop.com I knew I had to have it.  It is different from the usual leather skirt in that it is brown with a contrasting black waistband.  Also, the leather is paper thin, making the skirt light as air.  You cannot say that about most leather skirts.  I like that it is brown because most leather items are done in blackThe only bad thing I must mention is that Shopbop did a horrible job with the packaging.  The skirt was all bent up when I got it because they put it alone in a box with no packing material!  The box was also bent up because the skirt was so light and there was nothing to weigh it down.  It is a little wrinkled up and you can't really steam leather, but I figure it is going to get wrinkled up every time I wear it out and sit in it anyway.  I just thought I would mention it because Shopbop now has a place where you can rate their packaging. 

It would have been easy and oh so simple to pair this with a white button down shirt by a brand named Equipment or even a white tee, but I had to do something out of the ordinary otherwise I get bored.  I thought this red cropped sweater mixed so well with the brown of the skirt.  The sweater is slightly longer in the back and shorter in the front, a sort of hi lo hybrid you could say.  You have seen this exact cashmere sweater before a few posts back in charcoal.  Somehow every color of this Ami Dans La Rue sweater ended up in the 70% off section at Shopbop.  I feel sorry for pieces that end up there and anything that has any semblance of character I try to pick up and see what I can do with it.  However, these sweaters are basic pieces.  A cropped cashmere sweater in every color?  Yes please!

These Alaia boots are one of my favorite pairs of black ankle boots.  I like black ankle boots a lot and I probably say that about every pair, but the leather braiding on these makes them unique and it doesn't hurt that the zipper has ALAIA emblazoned all over it.  I am all over that! These boots have a unique shape, maybe a fierce shape, that says don't walk all over me just because I am wearing a leather pleated schoolgirl skirt.  I may look sweet, but I can definitely kick your ass if needed.  The Chanel pearl sunglasses were part of the sweet and innocent look as well.  I fell for these hook, line, and sinker at the Chanel boutique in Las Vegas.  I talked about them for days and days until the boyfriend broke down and found me a brand spankin new pair at a different boutique.  They scream Jackie O, don't ya think?
