I love it when items of clothing/accessories have good stories behind them. This coat is like that. Way back when my boyfriend and I were first dating, we stopped by a garage sale near his house and spotted this coat. I couldn’t decide whether or not to buy it, so then he went and bought it for me. Back then, the faux fur had a long, seventies shag look to it. I wasn’t sure how I felt about the seventies aspect, and Florida rarely gets cold enough to wear a suede coat. But recently, I got the idea that if I trimmed the fur all around, it would look a bit more modern. And so it does. And now I can’t wait for more cold days so I can wear this coat and add more good memories to it.
This was one of those wet, cold days that requires cozy layering. I’m still not crazy about this red henley fits me (it’s not so flattering to my gut), but with the sweater and the scarf, the unflattering bits are less noticeable. Still, I feel like I really need to invest in some good winter layering pieces. Maybe after my ban is over.
And did you notice the new hair? It’s not a super big change, but I like it. It’s a bit shorter and a more of a layered bob than what I had before. Tribeca Hair Salon (where I get my hair cut) is having a class on how to style your hair with a blow dryer soon. I think I’ll go, because this cut can have some awesome volume when styled correctly.
