mint + orange

21 January 2013


A statement coat is one of my favorite looks to turn to in the cold months of winter. It doesn't even really matter what is underneath, because the coat speaks for its self. Just pair it with some killer accessories, and easy-peasy you have yourself a look. I'm quite fond of this vintage-inspired one. Lace, peter pan collar, and puffed sleeves... count me in! Anyway, the apartment search continues and boy is it a nightmare. Cannot wait to finally settle into the new place, wherever that may be! We have our fingers crossed about an apartment in the city actually, but until we have the keys in our hands I will be keeping my poker face on! My friends and I love a good poker game and last time we played a round, we had so much fun . Oh, by the way, did you know that poker face means: face on a person that shows no emotion this is because n the game of poker it would be foolish to show any emotional traits that might screw the game for you. That's basically what searching for an apartment in NYC is... nothing but a  poker game ! Anyway, I hope you all had a lovely weekend and start your monday off fresh!

What an amazing and feminine look! The overlaid lace ornamentation on your coat is pretty and the coat is a nice colour. I agree wholeheartedly about lace, puffy sleeves and Peter Pan collars. That layered pleated chiffon skirt paired with your black lace-top thigh-highs is amazingly pretty and ultra-feminine - absolutely gorgeous. Your hair looks great both loose and held back with the hair-bow/barrette

So sorry to read that apartment hunting has been so difficult. Best of luck finding a nice one - I hope it's in the city and or someplace you really want to live. Have a wonderful week.

I totally agree with you! I'm so envious when I see girls in the subway that have so beautiful cuts, I really don't care what they are wearing under neath, the coat itself is enough xD

What a beautiful coat! I love the sweet details. I have a plain black pea-coat which I am getting awfully bored of, so this year I will be looking for a more exciting coat for winter!

Good luck with the apartment search :)
