Given the arctic conditions we endure here in DC, I have been living in my new (but old) vintage fisherman sweater. You might see 10 more ways to wear a giant warm sweater over the next month here on My Fair Vanity, and I apologize to any readers living in warmer climates, but it is really, really cold here. Like, really cold. And, 10,000 ways to wear one item is pretty green, amiright? So far I've only done three ways to wear an item in one post (three ways to wear plaid!), but the sky is the limit now, folks.

The shoes are my AGL patent oxfords that I found this summer. Email exchanges with the company told me that they are a third-generation family-owned business, and that they still use the same factory in Italy to make their shoes that they did when the brand launched. I can tell from wearing them that these shoes are comfy, well-made, and will last for years, which is very important to me bc I'm doing my best to build a wardrobe that is not only ethical but also free of disposable 'fast fashion.' I'm always on the lookout for another pair of AGLs and these metallic ones are verrrry tempting...

I found my J Brand Jeans used on Ebay after scouring the interwebs for some skinny, distressed denim that was made in the USA. So below, I've put together the results of my search for you to shop. Note: many of these jeans are deeply discounted and/or last pairs, so click fast if it's your size.
