(an older look!)
Have you ever purchased something you considered so special, so beautiful that you simply didn’t want to wear it and just leave its majestic presence hanging in your wardrobe for all eternity? I bought this tweed coat from Zipia.net a few year ago and just thought it was too good to wear out, so I put it aside for all these winters that passed by! It was a great find at only $49USD but I don’t think that deflates the worth of this coat at all- I have no idea where I would find a replica elsewhere for a price even close to that.
I love the tweed material, the flecks of gold woven into it, the bow-shaped pocket and of course the black and gold buttons with the little bows inside! The fitted design and length of the coat are also perfect- you can still show off your figure without having to succumb to cumbersome layers and a bulky silhouette we all dread so much in winter-time.
I ended up dragging out more relatively old items (‘old’ being a few years), such as this Forever New beret and the heels. The heels have soft, fabric bows on the front and the hat also features a large bow on the right side. Combined with all the bow details in my coat as well- I think it’s pretty clear what my fashion obsession was a few years back.
