    Happy Tuesday! I have to say that it was love at first sight with this coat.  I popped into the Rebecca Taylor showroom to look at Spring and got pulled like a magnet over to something furry and neutral in the opposite corner.  The whole “YES I must share this find with my readers” took over so here I am showing it to you.  And then I realized the price was pretty high and guilt fell over me as I slapped my own hand.  Then, the stage of cost per wear stepped in when I got stopped on the subway, stopped by the J Crew sales associate, stopped on a plane, all dying to know where this coat was from.  It’s a gem and oh-so warm.  Perhaps now is the time to cash in on those cyber holiday sales and throw it towards a coat like this.. but there are also some that I found below that look similar for a lower price.  There’s also a lesson in layering here, and that’s something that any person who has spent time in New York knows how to do pretty well.  Cutting the body up in different levels avoids bulk and keeps everything in proportion.

    Have a great day! x

      That coat is stunning! Love the way you styled it as well. It’s always good to have a few statement pieces in your closet.

      the soft movement of that skirt is a beautiful complement to the thick coziness of your fur accents. a beautiful outfit for chilly weather that does not sacrifice style in the least.

      Great stylish and warm look on you.



    7. When it’s love at first sight sometimes you just gotta invest. And rationalize. :) You look gorgeous so I’d say it was worth it!

      It’s a great coat. And I love something soft and flow-y underneath thick, bulky layers. Love the entire outfit.
