Coated

ctd_1We’re in full Winter mode now here and these pictures are from before the snow.  Winter is always a tough time for us because it’s just really long.  We live in padded coats and duck boots to keep out the cold and slush.  During winter, my wardrobe becomes definitely more functional.  Cozy sweaters and jeans are my go to pieces and I usually tend to spruce the ensemble up with a colorful or fuzzy coat.  I love these coated jeans, they have a leather-like appeal minus the headaches of caring for leather.  They add that urban chic flair but you can still style them up or down depending on your mood or the weather.ctd_2ctd_3ctd_4ctd_5ctd_6Coat: Stylenanda, Sweater: Forever21, Jeans: Old Navy, Shoes: Zara, Bag: See by Chloe

Fall In Love

fil_1xHappy Holidays!  I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!  Perhaps it is due to the lack of snow, as well as having to work everyday except Christmas, but this year, Christmas did not feel festive and holiday-ish.  But nonetheless, it was great to see my family and catch up with relatives I rarely see.  It makes me realize how precious those moments are.  It’s been relatively warm here and very un-December-like.  For the past few days the temps have hovered in the 40′s hence the shorts as you can see.   I recently hit up the 20% off Sale at Yoox and some damage was done.  You gotta be really careful, like really think about is this worth buying? and make sure you don’t have twitchy fingers.  This Love Moschino sweater was just so darling I had to get it.  How could you not fall in love with it?  My long camel coat is a F21 find, it’s actually quite sturdy and heavy.  I like that it’s substantial, and wearable during the cold winter months.  The only minus is the lack of pockets!  And I’m adoring this over the knee boots.  They’re wedges, so they’re really comfortable! fil_2xfil_3xfil_4xfil_5xfil_6xfil_7xSweater: Love Moschino from Yoox, Coat/Shorts: Forever 21, Boots: Wild Diva, Bag: Louis Vuitton

Rawr

rw_1xI did a lot of damage over Black Friday weekend.  Online shopping is so dangerous.  No wonder so many people go into credit card debt.  Anyway here are two things I recently got.  I love this faux fur leopard print coat.  It’s really soft, warm, and feels surprisingly luxe.  It’s from F21′s premium line with a heftier price tag ($86), but the quality shows.  Luckily I was able to utilize their 20% off.  Animal print can be loud and tricky, but when worn right, it really does exude a confident and luxurious feel.  No one wears leopard print faux fur to blend in with the crowd, but I still wanted to incorporate into my everyday wardrobe without appearing too Housewives of Orange County.  So when worn with a very preppy, casual look, it instantly took it to another level.  My wine colored leather bag from Rebecca Minkoff was actually a wrong purchase.  I had initially wanted the much smaller bag for everyday use but when I was putting it in the shopping cart, I didn’t look at the dimensions and they sent me the much bigger bag.  Looking back, this bigger bag is much more practical since I can fit more stuff in there.  Plus I’ve been wanting a bag in this color for a long time.  Anything to justify not having to send it back.  How did you fare this Black Friday weekend?  Is it time to cut up some cards? rw_2xrw_3xrw_4xrw_5xrw_6xCoat: Forever 21, Shirt: H&M, Jeans: BDG, Shoes: dollhouse, Bag: Rebecca Minkoff, Hat: ASOS
