Coat: Buffalo Exchange.  Try NastyGal, Vivetta (on sale!), Selected or Asos. Dress: Vintage.  Shoes: Hugo Boss Men (unlaced).  Try one of these, Topshop or   Bag: Sophie Hulme (15% off site wide. Code: BECAUSE). 
Yesterday I was in a teddy coat found at Buffalo Exchange (check Instagram for the find shot).  Also a vintage lurex gold dress and the Sophie Hulme bag.  This coat is such a head turning emerald – I love it. 
Note.  The coat buttons need updating to newer ones.  Should I go with dome black ones or gold?  I think either works.

    Outfits like this is why I fell in love with your blog in the first place years ago! I’m in love!

    • Karen says:

      That means a lot to read this….

    • Karen says:

      I’ll have a look at the options at the shops today. I should know by this afternoon

  2. FASHION SNAG says:

    I LOVE this look! The dress is nice and the coat too. Love the color of both. I say black, but it will be exciting to see what you end up choosing. The black look less noticeable and let the coat color stand out more.

    • Karen says:

      That’s what I was sort of thinking. Plus black doesn’t restrict me from wearing anything else colour wise ie. silvers etc.

    Looovvvvveee!! I’ve been looking for a colourful coat for ages but to no avail so far! 🙁
    Gold buttons would be amazing… I say big brassy vintage-y ones!

    • Karen says:

      Brass ones sound good. I still can’t decide!

      Coat wise the colorful ones are mostly on sale now online. Have you checked?

    Hi Karen I just want to let u know how much I enjoy your blog. You inspire me to get out of my comfort zone and try new things. Its because of u that I am now into pointy shoes and that I have turned a forgotten clutch into a bag! Thank u for all this. Lol eva

    • Karen says:

      THAT’S what I love to hear: getting inspired enough to try new things. That’s half the fun of all of this anyway. OMG wait till you see the pointy shoes I just found this week! I’ll Instagram them soon!

    • Karen says:

      That’s what I did! I got black because I didn’t want the coat to have ‘hardware’ on it to clash with any bag/shoe/clothes that I would wear. Plus the black does let the gold stand out all by itself.

    • Karen says:

      Correction: Does let the COAT stand out by itself.

    Gorgeous! And that bag is very Hermes-esque without the CPR-inducing price tag. Love it! I’m glad to hear that you went with the black buttons.I would have done the same.

    • Karen says:

      I didn’t think of that. It does remind me of the Hermes shoulder bag which of course I love. Yea black ones all the way. Looking forward to collecting it later this week.
