Faux Fabulous!

Its hard to believe this is the last blog post of 2016!!
 The year went by so fast!! 
This blog has been a fun creative outlet for me this year! 
I've enjoyed playing around with different looks and makeup for photography. 
I also love sharing style with all of you! 
Part of this long winter is switching up a puffer coat or wool coat for a faux one!
Faux is great for a New Years Eve Party or for Valentines day!
The texture and print give you that sparkle of movie star to any night out.
Its easy to wash and store too which is such a plus!
We all have those garments that need a cedar closet to keep moths away. 
Storing clothes can become too high maintenance after a while.
Luckily with faux theres no need to worry about that!
This is a vintage gem I found thrifting.
It has a gorgeous retro red lining which is so fun!
This gorgeous chub coat looks good with jeans too!
With jeans I take this look from movie star to rock star.
For this look book I wanted to show the coat in a more glamorous style.
Enjoy, and have a fun,healthy, and Happy New Year!

Retro Flare

I'm extremely picky when it comes to a fall and winter coat. 
I'm in a coat from the middle of November to the beginning of April. 
Its an item I wear everyday for almost six months of the year.. 
If I'm going to be stuck in a coat for that long I might as well have fun with it.
I'm crazy for the boldly printed retro coats from the 60s and 70s. 
Fashion was so colorful and bold back then!!
 A lot of the coats were trimmed in faux fur and flared out to A line silhouettes. 
I've always had this vintage brown plaid coat but never wore it till recently.
Its a dress coat from the 60s/70s.
 I wore it with over the knee boots from Chinese Laundry.
This coat makes an amazing statement!! 
I think I may wear it for the holidays when I'm in NYC.
I feel like a queen when I put it on. Its beautifully tailored,lined,and very warm!
Winter fashion like these coats inspires me to simply enjoy the cold weather season.
There's no reason we still can't look fabulous during the colder and shorter days of winter.

Glamorous winter

I've been putting my cold weather wardrobe together for weeks! 
I live on the East coast so the winters here are long and grueling. 
This year I wanted to go for more of a glam look.
Its hard to stay glamorous in freezing cold weather isn't it? 
To save money I like to take my boots to the shoe maker for new soles and heels, and I thrift! 
Its amazing what you can find thrifting. 
That's how I found this coat.
Its a brown suede leather wrap coat. 
The coat is fully lined and has a fur trimmed collar.
When I saw it I had to have it!! 
Its very modern and wearable for a vintage piece.
I love that its a fall color scheme to wear with my brown leather boots.
I can't wait to wear a big oversize scarf and hat with this look!
Instead of getting bummed out this winter get glam!
Being a little glamorous is always up lifting.

Patchwork Leather Groove

I love the vintage coats of the 60s and 70s!
The tailoring was impeccable,design lines were figure flattering,
and the creativity was limitless. 
Lately I've been into wearing trenches from the 70s.
 In a lot of the vintage coats you see patchwork leather designs,
faux fur collars,and bright neon colors.
 I was extremely lucky to find this treasure while thrifting. 
Its the most elaborately detailed leather coat I've ever seen! 
The coat has jewel toned pieces of patchwork throughout the garment. 
Reds,greens,taupe's,and black,make it so sharp! 
I don't know about you but,
 double breasted coat closures are my favorite way to button up in the winter.
Theres something about the front double breasted coat that looks sleek and military.
I think on a woman its flattering as well because it truly shows off our hour glass figures. 
This coat would be adorable with a mini dress and boots for evening!
Its a day to night piece.
I wish we could see beautiful design lines like this again.
I am forever inspired by the past.

Sweater Weather

Who's ready to layer up for fall?? 
Fall is a funny season. 
Some days its warm,and some days its real cold. 
For that reason we turn to separates to guide us through the fall transitional fall season.
I like to have a piece for the cold days that can be used as a jacket or a coat.
I've been loving long sweater dusters for the colder days.
They look so chic, and fun when worn with jeans or leggings.
This one I'm wearing is vintage! Its real suede leather and knitted wool.
I love the copper color of it too.
To me its the ideal piece to include in my wardrobe.
It can be worn indoors and out. 
I love vintage for the unique separates to pair with newer clothes.
I wish I had 5 or 6 of these sweater coats because their so warm and cozy.
I'll be on the hunt for more just like these.
