Winter Coats

Ahh, cooler weather calls for layers and layers of clothes. Which means, we walk around looking like giant overstuffed turkeys. I’m not really a big fan of layering. I hate walking around feeling like I can’t move my arms. Also, having to remove pounds of clothes every time I walk in somewhere with a heater. I prefer to just wear one giant coat, warm shoes and call it a day. I love a coat that feels like I am being hugged by a giant warm blanket. I prefer a wool coat, teddy fur or faux-fur. I have a fair amount of coats but I’m always shopping around for more!

An Early Welcome To Spring

Spring is around the corner ( 10 days away actually) for a lot of those that live north of the border. For those of us that are fortunate enough to live in warm states, spring has actually been around since like December, since our “winters” are more like spring weather. I wanted a look that would welcome spring in open arms and what better way to say “hi!” than in pastels. I am actually looking forward to spring since it is my favorite season!

Outfit Details

This gorgeous dress was actually purchased at Goodwill and I love everything about it. It is a form fitting dress that accentuates my curves nicely and the color really compliments my skin. The coat was another Goodwill find that I am absolutely in love because of its beautiful embroidery detail. The biggest splurge here was the shoes. Although, the term “splurge” I use loosely since the shoes were only $60 ( about 50% off retail ). I wanted to add a bit of shimmer and contrast to this outfit and that is why I did wore these shoes with it. I think the gold accent with the pastel is definitely a nice mixture.

Outfit total: $67.00

  • Dress: $3.00
  • Coat: $4.00
  • Shoes: $60.00

P.S. – A huge shout out to Aliyah Coll who did my makeup for this outfit & my patient boyfriend for taking a million shots of one outfit.

Happy Fashion

The cold days

We’ve been attacked by a “cold front” here in Florida – so that means, boots, coats, scarves, etc…I should mention that by cold front, I mean high of 50’s. Yes, I know we are very weak down here but hey, it happens. I went out last night to celebrate my girlfriend’s big 3-0 birthday. I knew I wanted to wear these thigh-high boots and a dress, so I pulled this out of the closet. I wore this dress once already with purple heels but I wanted to try something different this time around. The dress a pretty flair so I knew the boots would look really nice. Since it was cold out, I threw on this coat and I also wore black pantyhose to keep me extra warm. To finish this look, I wore a bold lip color and clutch.

Happy Fashion.
