Orange Coat

February 29, 2012

Tangerine coat

I fell in love with this 10 Crosby Belted Trench Coat by Derek Lam. Sadly, at $600 it was way out of my price range. I was excited to find a look for less version in the ASOS coat I am wearing. Been dying to find a bright coat, such a statement piece. My neon clutch from Target is still holding it’s own.

I am wearing a sheer blouse from Forever 21 and please don’t “shiver” for me. The weather was perfectly appropriate, even though we are still in winter. I seriously cannot wait for summer. It’s so much easier and more fun to dress for it.

The elephant in the room: New blog design! Thoughts?

Orange coat

What I am Wearing:

Coat:ASOS (here), Top:Forever 21, Pants:Santuary (Similar)
Clutch:Target, Shoes:Zara (Similar)
Watch:Michael Kors, Necklace:Anna & Ava
Sunglasses:Prada, Lipstick:YSL Rouge
