February’s theme, suggested by blogger Swgarasu, is outerwear. We did this theme once before, back in December 2011, where I featured a lovely lace trenchcoat from Bebe. Today, I am sharing a beloved Arden B find – my wool pea coat with PVC trim.
Mr. Kitty calls this my Sexy Spy coat. lol. Both this coat and my lace trench are about 3-4 years old. I miss the days when higher-end mall stores like Bebe and Arden B carried so many edgy, Goth-friendly items. Someday, I’m sure they will again… But for now, it’s all about the rebirth of Grunge, and every trendy person in Southern California is spending a ton of money to dress up like they are homeless or something. It’s pretty gross. From what I see in the mall, there is absolutely no beauty or sophistication in popular fashion at the moment, and it makes me sad. But I’m glad I was able to score a coat like this back in better times!
Now it’s your turn! Break out your coats, jackets, sweaters, shrugs, capes, cloaks, etc and show us how you bundle up for the great outdoors when the air is frigid.
For those of you currently experiencing summer, feel free to showcase lightweight wraps, beachy cover-ups, blazers, etc. The more variety, the better, so get creative!
