Sexy Transition

black maxi dress
black vintage purse

Her coat is a purchase from a random shop.  The bag is vintage.

I took this picture last year and the look still inspires.  It’s a simple way to take a long lightweight dress into Autumn.  The only accent is the little braided metallic belt and patent leather for contrast.

The trick is that coat.  Super basic with narrow shoulders – flattering and timeless.  The heeled boots keep it super chic and stops the coat length from overwhelming.  

….and how effing hot is that thigh high slit??

All these get the look:

Topshop or See by Chloe or D&G coats
Topshop, Haute Hippie, or Pencey long dresses
Helmut Kinetic Side Slit skirt
Kors by Michael KorsTopshop Arch Velcro High Tops or  boots

    I swear both the coat and the dress are by Carin Wester, i have them both and used to wear them together through the whole autumn/winter. so weird to see someone else wearing them, feels like someone stole my wardrobe:) looks absolutely stunning on her though xx
