Better than my favorite sweater

12/15/11




Chicwish boyfriend coat, The Quiet Riot top, Forever 21 skirt, Steve Madden wedges

This is what winter in good ol' LA is like: a sheer top, suede skirt, and a boyfriend coat to keep 'warm.' This past weekend, that was all that was needed - not complaining! I'm enjoying the days I can actually walk bare-legged, it's quite refreshing in the winter time. But since it has been a lot colder than in the past years, for some time now I'd been on the pursuit to find the perfect shapely boyfriend coat and I haven't come across one in my size or budget-friendly... until I got this one. The unusual reddish color, the way the sleeves hang on my arms, and the 70/30% wool/cashmere fabrication is smashing - easily my current obsession.

I envy you for winters like that; over here in the Netherlands it's literally freezing and therefore there are hardly any fashionable options left, sadly enough. Haha that's so funny that you just posted about Lana del Rey, I just featured her on my blog as well! I love her music so much, definitely going to buy the album once it's being released.

Love, Lisa

A wool/cashmere blend sounds so warm and luxurious. I browse Chicwish on occasion, and I think they have really great prices as well as selection. Love the way your jacket and skirt evoke pretty fall colors.

Matina said...

that blazer is amazing. i always feel so businessy (i'm not sure if thats the right word) in them, so although i have one, everytime i put it on i end up taking it off... maybe i should just try leaving it on haha. but you look great in it. x
