Sunday Remix


Previous outfit posts: one, two, three, and four.
I have a "thing" for winter coats...I think the "thing" is I like being warm in winter and so I've collected quite a few that allow for both warmth and sartorial variety. Even so I never buy a lot of coats at once or even each year, I just add to my collection annually and have a hard time getting rid of old ones! As an example this lovely teal coat was acquired back in 2011 and it still gets a lot of wear. While some people have a signature style or pieces, I tend to be less consistent and this is reflected in my coats--none of them look alike. Even more than having many coats, having ones that look quite distinct from each other is important to me in winter to save me from boredom when dressing to survive the cold. And when you have to hide most of your outfit under a coat for a good portion of the day it should be a fun coat, no?

I have this coat! I love a good coat with lots of character too.

Winter coats should definitely have a personality all their own! I love this one very much! It has just the right amount of panache.

@Anonymous, I prefer long hair on myself and the pixie was fun for awhile, but I don't have a desire to go back. Maybe one day but I just don't see it right now.

I'm the same way! I have a ridiculous amount of coats, and all so different from eachother. i have never been able to part with them, even if I hardly wear some of them.
