Top Coat

Head to Toe: Coat and sweater, Thrifted // Hat, American Apparel // Bag, Zara // Jeans, Old Navy

Yep, that's snow at my feet! We got a few inches last weekend, and another hefty helping is on its way in the next few days (just in time to throw a wrench in my birthday plans, per usual). It may be late in the season, but winter has officially arrived. Though I will suffer many pains for fashion (too-high heels, too-tight high-waisted skirts), I refuse to be cold. Layering up has been my M.O. lately, and I rotate between a few heavy coats—a basic black pea coat, this fur number and a big puffer—depending on the severity of the day. One thing that's surprised me is the glorified sweaters many New York women pass off as coats. Yes, that cocoon wrap is adorable, but it's 11 degrees out. Personally, I'd rather feel like Ralphie's brother from A Christmas Story ("I can't put my arms down!") than shiver on a windy morning. But perhaps there's a better balance: How do you stay warm without looking like the Michelin man?

  1. Ooh that sweater is so cozy!!!
    And yea, when I was walking to work in NYC I looked insane. Coat, scarf, hat, sunglasses and gloves. But now I deal with the cold since I mostly go from my car to indoors

  7. The trials of keeping warm and staying fashionable! The more layers the better, and I'm a big fan of my faux fur coat. I also feel like my feet need to be warm. None of those open pumps/open flats/sneakers with no socks business. Boots with cozy socks all the way.

  13. Assalamualaikum Salam sejahtera untuk kita semua, Sengaja ingin menulis
    sedikit kesaksian untuk berbagi, barangkali ada teman-teman yang sedang
    kesulitan masalah keuangan, Awal mula saya mengamalkan Pesugihan Tanpa
    Tumbal karena usaha saya bangkrut dan saya menanggung hutang sebesar
    1M saya sters hampir bunuh diri tidak tau harus bagaimana agar bisa
    melunasi hutang saya, saya coba buka-buka internet dan saya bertemu
    dengan KYAI SOLEH PATI, awalnya saya ragu dan tidak percaya tapi selama 3 hari
    saya berpikir, saya akhirnya bergabung dan menghubungi KYAI SOLEH PATI
    kata Pak.kyai pesugihan yang cocok untuk saya adalah pesugihan
    penarikan uang gaib 4Milyar dengan tumbal hewan, Semua petunjuk saya ikuti
    dan hanya 1 hari Astagfirullahallazim, Alhamdulilah akhirnya 4M yang saya
    minta benar benar ada di tangan saya semua hutang saya lunas dan sisanya
    buat modal usaha. sekarang rumah sudah punya dan mobil pun sudah ada.
    Maka dari itu, setiap kali ada teman saya yang mengeluhkan nasibnya, saya
    sering menyarankan untuk menghubungi KYAI SOLEH PATI Di Tlp 0852-2589-0869
    Atau Kunjungi Situs KYAI www.pesugihan-uang-ghaib.com agar di
    berikan arahan. Supaya tidak langsung datang ke jawa timur, saya sendiri dulu
    hanya berkonsultasi jarak jauh. Alhamdulillah, hasilnya sangat baik, jika ingin
    seperti saya coba hubungi KYAI SOLEH PATI pasti akan di bantu Oleh Beliau
