Coat Day

Posted on


Never say never in April…


Coat & lime knit: Zara.  White leather vest: H&M (similar here or here). Seen before in this post with a white shirt.   Jeans: Thrift (similars). Shoes: Steve Madden (similars).  Shades: Ray Ban. Bag: Balenciaga

Wore the coat on a rain on/rain off day with oversized faded jeans and a white leather vest.  Leopard heels to start but switched to black Chuck Taylors in the car which felt more me anyway. I should’ve taken a pic in them since it worked with the coat.  Another day ; -)

ps. and completely un-related but who watches Mad Men?  I’m jumping in mid-stream and it’s bloody good. Need to get the 1st series on Netflix asap.

pps. The next outfit post will def be more spring-like!

    I love this look! I’ve just moved to London, and I’m always looking for ways to stay fashionable in the damp weather. It’s been raining here everyday for like 8 days! I’m dying to get out of my wellies. Cute look!

    Awesome, wearable look! Leopard makes such a great neutral, and the yellow is great… channels a little sunshine on a rainy, chilly day :-)

    • http://www.blogger.com/profile/05623095025020138653 Karen

      Thx but I think its adding the vest that helps it: Only saying that because I know a lot of leather sleeve coats are around – especially in NY!

    Mad Men is brilliant I was hooked after the first show. I watched the entire first season in a matter of 2 weeks. Yeah, I was pretty unproductive then. Beware!

    Mad Men is awesome and I love how you’ve mixed up the coat with the leather vest to give it an entirely different look! That’s what I love about your blog. You’re so original and know how to mix things up. I swear you could literally take anything and turn it into fashion gold! :-)

    These kind of jackets are one of the perfect example for fulfill the purpose of casual as Winter Jackets well as formal look for any occasion, party or events. It has an overlapping front with parallel column of buttons on both the sides. Hooded Jackets can’t go out of fashion because of its stylish hoods that makes you trendy. You have a lot of options to get hooded leather jackets because it comes in all the range for youth.Trench coats are long coats that protect you from the harsh Cheap Jackets weather and provide a great style statement.It is designed to act as a second skin for humans who wear it and protect from the unaware major buries caused by vehicle accidents. Leather jackets come in a large variety and styles from Mens Jackets biker to racer but they are always in fashion and maintain their position till date.
