Haute Winter

IMG_3371 Let me first start off by explaining how obsessed I am with this dress. I purchased it from Shopbop its from this very cool inexpensive brand called JOA. When I first saw this dress online I knew I was going to like it never had any idea I would actually come to love it. I received the dress and it was a little large in the midsection but after a little alteration it fit like a glove. The skater style dress is really popular right now and I know exactly why. The fit of this dress is literally flattering on every figure. Can hide a pair shape if interested, and if you want to create the illusion of a pair shape it can also help with that. Don't ask me how just thank the fashion gods lol, this dress just seems to work out that way. I paired this little cutie with also another recent purchase this beautiful winter white duster coat from ASOS. And last but certainly not least I wore won of my all time favorite lace booties by Chanel. If you know me, you know this look is very me. Mini lengths, trench coats, and high heels I am here for this every time. IMG_3279 I know I mentioned how obsessed I am with this dress but I didn't even tell you the best part yet. This dress was only $99. Total steal right? I had to get it, the price was awesome and I needed a really cute dress for a trip to Miami, which it was perfect for by the way. I love a long sleeve in general but on dresses it’s my favorite and with this dress being such a mini I think is very important to have my arms covered. Not just for weather purposes but I just find that it creates a good balance. The material is somewhat thick so I probably couldn't wear once the temperature starts to rise, but trust me in the mean time I plan repeating this gem over and over again. It's become an instant classic in my closet. IMG_3315 Winter is here so bring out the trenches, full lengths, and dusters. I can honestly say that I only look forward to the cold weather simply for the chance to buy beautiful coats. And this winter is no exception. I went absolutely crazy with the coats this year. I bought a black wool coat, a tan duster coat, and this beautiful winter white duster you see above. I know buying the same style in three colors may be extreme; but in my opinion, they are all staple pieces. ASOS makes beautiful coats and they are very good quality. I've been an ASOS shopper since college and I have yet to have a complaint. They are fashionista's dream come true. IMG_3307 I just stare at these beauties sometimes. One of favorite and most comfortable shoes I own. I remember the day I purchased them. My mom had come from Michigan to visit me in Georgia and we headed straight to Saks for a shoe sale they were having, and there they were my size and on sale. When the universe calls out to you about a Chanel sale you answer it lol, no exceptions. Chanel is a timeless brand and owning anything from this brand is an investment. Or at least that what I have to tell myself every time I purchase a Chanel piece.
