Chanel beige classic flap

I wore this outfit earlier on Tuesday to run into the city for a few hours.

Coat: Second  hand/thrift. Check my YouTube video for my fave vintage finds!  Jeans: Zara (DIY ripped). Jumper: Topshop. Bag: Chanel (found on eBay read this post).  
 This is a second hand coat that so reminds me of Anna Sui.  It straddles that rock/retro line and as a woman in Starbucks said, it’s the right length.  We both got into a conversation (while waiting for our drinks) about hating jackets that stop at the waist making us look like we have short torsos.    I love how fashion can make two complete strangers get into this kind of deep discussion.
ps.  I made another YouTube video about my absolute fave vintage finds.  Click here to watch!

    nice coat; but is it warm for NYC winter?

    • Karen says:

      Actually it’s not too bad. It’s definitely warm especially if you layer under it
