What I love about this jacket:

  • It’s a pale lavender and yet it doesn’t wash me out.
  • It’s got a unique ruched collar that looks great laid flat or scrunched up a bit to mimic a ruff.
  • It’s got that lovely swing back so I look interesting both coming and going.
  • It’s got fun slant pockets.
  • It’s got substantial hardware, both the zipper and the snap buttons at the pockets.
  • It’s the perfect length for fun-sized ol’ me.

What I love about these skinnies:

  • They’ve got that perfect stretch that’s both forgiving and flattering.
  • They’ve got a brocade print that is subtle enough for work but fancy enough to work for Medieval.
  • They’ve got pockets.

What I love about this outfit:

  • It’s comfy enough that I can run around and prepare the class Thanksgiving feast without fear but it’s stylish enough that I don’t feel like a Friday frump.
  • It’s 52 Pick-me-up compliant.
  • It’s Blogging Besties compliant because Whitney said “white lace tee + blue scarf + plaid skirt + blue sparkly flats” and I got that white lace tee all covered.

Vive le vendredi!

  1. Da coat is so flattering and cosy looking! I am SO bad, I have been perusing items to make more Clara Cosplay- bad bad bad! If you do the TARDIS thing, Might not be able to link up tomorrow as I am out at orchestra till about midnight and no blogging allowed in school of course- it doesn’t have to be clothing, right? I could blog on a who theme?!?!x

    • Don’t stress – I’m on hiatus this week. On holiday for American Thanksgiving. Will do official TARDIS Tuesday linkup next week so you have plenty of time. 😀

    • I’ve never been a big behind person because it’s not like I can see my back or anything, but the detail of this coat was just too darling to pass up. Just knowing it’s back there makes me happy. 😀

    • And I wouldn’t even have realized their potential awesomeness had I not purged my closet and really looked at what I own. ;p

    • And the comfort factor was off the charts! Then again, maybe I’m just feeling that way because I’ve been in dresses for so long. Skinnies ftw.

    • Ah, good! So these count as purple? I always envision purple to be deep and royal and majestic and something I can’t ever pull off, but if you say this counts I’m taking it!

Tell me all about it! I'm listening...
