Velvet Trench

I ran across this amazing velvet trench coat back in the heat of the summer, and have since been anxiously anticipating its debut. Anything velvet automatically becomes one of my favorite pieces in my wardrobe, especially when its this beautiful color of chartreuse. I paired it with a relaxed plaid jumpsuit and a pair of ankle strap heels. I also added a vintage fur stole as a final touch of layered texture.

For this look, I mixed tougher elements, like leather and studs, with more delicate elements, like lace and florals. I really love incorporating contrasting styles into any outfit.

Here's a story of girl really loves bubble gum pink coat... but let's it slip away into the land of "out of stock," never to be seen again... That is, until the wonderful world of eBay steps in to save the day. Really far back in the timeline of my blog, you will find a post of my debating over which color to buy of this coat. Well, as it would turn out, while I was trying to make the decision, both of the colors sold out. *cue tears* Recently, I was searching on eBay and ran up on it. YES! I suppose some things are just meant to be. I styled it with a pale pink dress, navy scarf, black tights, and my favorite leopard ankle boots.

Vintage Glamour

When I opened the box containing this dream coat on Christmas morning, my heart skipped a beat. And when I say it is a dream, I literally mean it is a dream. The creamy beige leather separated by the panels of beige fur are beyond words, not to mention the perfectly flared cut. I'm also crazy about the fact that on top of all of those wonderful details, there is a beautiful fur collar that really just sets the coat off. I truly believe it's impossible to feel anything but glamorous when slipping this number on. On the inside, the name Marjorie is inscribed into the lining. I never knew Marjorie, but I can imagine from this coat that she was confident, bold, and every bit beguiling. So this one's for you Marjorie; may I embody all of your charms when wearing this dream.
