So which piece will be playing the lead role in today's post...? Have you guessed it yet? Yes! It's my new coat! It's warm, surprisingly well-made and so adorably vintage... also, very versatile - it's gonna fit both into my feminine and boyish outfits. Plus, I've always wanted to own a coat with the houndstooth print.
Naturally, for my first time wearing it outside, I had to style it in a way that would match its whole retro feel. I wore a plain black shirt dress underneath but I tied a red bow around its collar to peek graciously from under the coat. Add the coat of arms, the hat, the leather briefcase and bulky shoes and you get a pretty winter-ish schoolgirl chic outfit.
I decided to unbutton the coat for the photoshoot. Somehow it looks much more masculine when buttoned up, probably due to fact that it's double-breasted and I-shaped. This way, it just embraced the slightly flared bottom part of my dress, turning into a lovely A-shape.
