Red/Green




Coat (ebay, no brand)
Isabel Marant Entoile Top 9ebay)
Joie Leather Skirt (ebay)
Rag and Bone Boots (christmas gift, ebay)
Free People Bag (ebay)

Our yard I starting to look quite Red/Green Show-ish with all of the projects we've had going on and some of the creative solutions Ev has had towards creating his own steam blower for the waterline. (Thus, the title.  This is the clean section of the yard right now.)

Just some very quick pictures of an outfit the other day, I liked the skirt and top together but was running out of daylight to take pictures. This top was a really good find, it was $14.99 partly because there's a few loose threads and because the seller was familiar with the brand. Score for me, this particular top doesn't usually go below $100 on ebay and retailed for close to $300.   Isabel Marant is a weird brand in that it generally holds a good resell value, most tops go for around $100 or more second hand where Joie Silk tops normally retail for very similar prices but don't have a huge resell value. You can normally find them for under $20 and I've found all of my mine for around the $10 range. Joie tops are my favorite brand next to Isabel Marant and the silk used is normally very thick and lovely (as long as you stay away from the sheer ones, the silk s thin and a bit scratchy) so I would recommend them for you're looking for nice bohemian, Marant-ish tops without the price tag or the waiting for a good deal.   I will say that I've always had good luck in finding my Marant items for much lower than they normally go for on ebay but it takes a really long time and a lot of patience!
