Not Another Leopard Coat

I think it's pretty safe to say that the more outlandish a coat is, the more I'm going to love it. You last saw me in a leopard jacket a few posts back, and now I'm back with a longer version— so different. Are you guys like that? If you love something, crazy or otherwise, do you feel compelled to rock it in every size, shape and colour humanly possible? Case in point, my beret addiction. This blog is really making me realize what a creature of habit I am; when I decide I like something, I stick to it. Not to mention the fact that all this faux fur and beret action has shown me how heavily my personal style has been shaped by my childhood style heroes (think Cher Horowitz and The Nanny). This photo of Fran rocking a teddy coat was a real eye-opener for me (I mean, come on), while I always knew Clueless was the reason I started collecting vintage berets years ago. And now that it's socially acceptable to wear both 24/7, I'm just over here living my best life... oh the power of fashion.

Now for a little house keeping— with it being the holidays and all, I've decided to take a little break from posting on here and just enjoy some time with family and friends. I hope you guys understand, and that you'll join me back here in January when regular updates kick up again. I have lots of fun content planned for 2018 (how crazy does that sound— the future is now!), and I can't wait to get back to work and try out a few new things. If you guys have suggestions for what you would like to see covered in this space, or old topics you would like to see revived, please feel free to weigh-in in the comment section— your opinions are very much valued and appreciated. So with that, I wish you all much love, happiness and sugar-covered everything this holiday season, regardless of what you celebrate... happy ho ho, and peace out 2017!
