"I want a girl with a short skirt and a long jacket." Do you remember that song by the band Cake? As a child of the 90s, I'm always up for a little nostalgia and what better way to celebrate the alternative rock of your youth than by wearing an outfit that's the subject of a song. Wearing shorter dresses with longer pieces on top has been a staple of mine all summer, but this incredible floor-length duster jacket is taking things to another level. Both the dress and the jacket are from a company called Third Phase Clothing, and I had the pleasure of meeting with the founders at my hotel in Los Angeles while vacationing in California. What struck me most about this company is that each of their pieces is intermixable with the next and they actually show you how to style each item three ways - what a great concept, especially for someone who loves to mix and match their wardrobe like me. Song title or not, from Los Angeles to Toronto, the short dress and long jacket has become a new favourite and I'm looking forward to taking it through Fall.

Do you guys have a nostalgic time period for music? Have you ever let the title of a song influence your outfit. Any other 90s kids out there? I would love to know!
