I got this coat two years ago at Anthropology. I'm pretty sure that it was the most amount of money I spent on coat at the time. I loved it because of its color and the interesting cut but I'm not sure about it anymore. So if you ask me if it was worth buying it, my answer would be no, sadly.
However, I love this dress that my sister got me in China, very Anna Sui-ish to me! She got it for probably $15! This is what I wore underneath my coat. It was cold last Thursday and I wish that I had had really thick tights on!
There is a section in Lucky magazine that I love. It shows you how to wear one piece of clothing in different seasons and I feel like it's what I've been doing. I'm wearing a lot of my summer dresses this winter with tights and feel great because I don't have to put them away for seven months or however long the winter lasts around here.
So I would put away the jacket when it gets a bit warmer for Spring or in the Fall when I get excited to wear my tights again after the Summer. My belt came with a dress from Banana Republic that I got for $20 from original price of $150!
I can just wear it without the belt in the summer with flats or flip flops.
I also have one last thing to show you. I got this purse at a second hand store called Second Time Around. I love everything about it: the yummy plum color, the long chain (!) and the incredible exposed zipper detail! All for $16!
Have a great week everyone!
