A coat is usually a piece that is worn in addition to, or sometimes even in spite of, your outfit. It’s the last minute add-on, the cover-up, the item that you take off to reveal the actual outfit. A coat is the P.S. of fashion… But not this one.
I fell so in love with this Shoshanna coat that I felt the need to dedicate a post JUST to it! From the oversized gold buttons to the pleating in the back to the perfect weight of the fabric, this coat is every classy girly-girl’s dream. If you enjoy channeling Kate or Blair, this is your coat. So even though I’m sure you’ll see this coat making an appearance in many posts to come, this time I’m letting it be the piece de resistance that it truly is!!
Coat: Shoshanna // Bag: Rebecca Minkoff (also seriously crushing on the Mint!) // Shoes: ShoeMint
In case you missed it, the Chanel show at Paris Fashion Week transformed the runway into the world’s most fashionable supermarket. Yes, I said supermarket. I don’t know about you, but I probably wouldn’t mind grocery shopping so much in THAT store. Forget organic, I want Chanel.
The over-the-top production featured some pretty over-the-top looks as well, with knee-high sneaker boots, handbags that looked like packages of meat, and some sort of ripped crop-top and sweat-pant ensemble on the unstoppable miss Cara Delvingne. Of course, I would expect nothing less from Karl Lagerfeld. The man is a fashion genius, if a bit eccentric, and the show was quite a spectacle. I firmly believe it would be fashion blasphemy to say that one doesn’t like Chanel, so I’ll settle with saying I didn’t love it. I appreciated the aesthetic of it all and I gasped in all the right places, but you know me. I like the classic look.
