Black + Nude

Chanel beige classic flap

I wore this outfit earlier on Tuesday to run into the city for a few hours. 

faux fur coat black faux fur coat womens vintage coat Chanel vintage classic flap black skinny jeans black fur coat
Coat: Second  hand/thrift. Check my YouTube video for my fave vintage finds!  Jeans: Zara (DIY ripped). Jumper: Topshop. Bag: Chanel (found on eBay read this post).  

 This is a second hand coat that so reminds me of Anna Sui.  It straddles that rock/retro line and as a woman in Starbucks said, it's the right length.  We both got into a conversation (while waiting for our drinks) about hating jackets that stop at the waist making us look like we have short torsos.    I love how fashion can make two complete strangers get into this kind of deep discussion.

ps.  I made another YouTube video about my absolute fave vintage finds.  Click here to watch!

It took me a while but here are a few photos taken during our cruise last month.

We visited St. Thomas, St. Kitts, Antigua and St. Maarten and hung out at local places on each island.

sequin skirt

I have found myself increasingly avoiding the usual black and camel neutrals and feeling more me in bright colors. 

leopard print kitten heels Jcrew edie bag Ray Ban wayfarers fuzzy sweater gold sequin skirt leopard print heels
Fuzzy jumper: Forever21 (runs small - mine is a large). Skirt: Vintage. Try Dorothy Perkins.  I want this green one!  Bag: JCrew.  Shoes: JCrew (30% off with code SHOPNOW). Topshop or Gianvito Rossi. Socks: Topshop. Shades: Ray-Ban foldables. Lipstick: Wet n Wild 'Dollhouse Pink.'

Maybe it's because colour makes more sense (in my head) for the winter when days go dark so fast or  it's just appealing to my eccentric side. 

The vintage sequin skirt (seen before with all black here) is my neutral every year although I have to say that this multicolored pencil is my new favorite.   This gold one though is older.  It has a couple of rips in it now which as always makes it even better.  The fuzzy jumper is slightly boxy and is soft and fuzzy enough without crossing into dodgy bird-like territory.

ps. I'm glad that the below Chanel post guide was helpful!
