Category Archives: New Coat November

Bollywood Barn Coat

Dollar Store Sunnies, Gifted Scarf, Coat: D’s Mom, Sweater (not pictured): Bass, Hurley Jeans: Plato’s Closet, Bronx Boots & Headband: Stella Mae, Ring: FlorenceIt’s no secret I collect coats, so when D’s mom was cleaning out her closet  and came across this Indian made coat from her late twenties she saved it for me. She altered it a bit creating the perfect cross between a barn coat and a swing coat complete with a cute bell shape.

It was the perfect weight for holding off the rather crisp fall wind while running weekend errands downtown… and by errands I mean a stop for maple lattes at Uncommon Grounds, browsing used cds at Pure Pop (we left with Amy Winehouse & Marvin Gaye), and indulging at Logan’s of Vermont.

what did you wear this weekend? 

Big Girl Heels.

Knit Hat: UO, Jacket: Wilson’s Leather, Sweater: Zara, Jeans: Gap, Skull Ring: Vending Machine, Heels: ALDO

Yet another modified version of jeans and a tee, my go to outfit. Since this is such a simple look I added texture with the knit hat and leather jacket and a pop of color with my wild print ALDO heels. I was on the fence about buying these heels (the print reminded me of an early 90’s track suit a neighbor used to have) until two little girls shopping with their mom told me they liked my “big girl shoes” and just like that I was sold.

What helps you decide when you’re on the fence about a purchase?

October Outfits and New Coat November

20 outfit posts later October is over & the holidays are around the corner!While October was full of fall fashion excitement most of the leaves have fallen off the trees and the temperature is steadily dropping. November is here which means it’s time to get serious about bundling up. Enter my insane impressive collection of coats. I’ve been meaning to catalog my coat/outerwear collection for sometime now and November 1st seems like the perfect time to start.

Starting today I’ll be wearing and sharing a different coat each day for the whole month of November (yes I really have that many coats… possibly more). Not only do I think this exercise will help me get a handle on the size and scope of my collection but I’m hoping it will kick start a major closet purge.

So without further ado here is coat #1 (a current favorite) black, Guess moto jacket from Wilson’s Leather (last seen here)

What wardrobe items do you collect?
