Fancy that




 
I picked up this little gem of a coat at the Biscuit boxing day sale.
I was so excited when I found it untouched and ready for the wearing, 
amongst the chaos of shoppers crammed in the store.
I actually almost passed on it because the sleeves were short,
there was no lining and the fabric reminded me of bad choices passed
BUT THEN my friend pointed out the back!
I was smitten!
I love the style and the equestrian feel it offers.
I had already tried this baby on two times and I had failed to noticed the back!
Silly me! I guess it does pay to have friends after all...
looks like I'll defer my becoming a hermit a little while longer.

  7. The back of this jacket is so cool. And the color is fantastic. I probably would have bought it and gotten all the way home before I noticed the back detail.

  8. Oh my god, you are so right! I am seriously so in love with this bag (best christmas gift ever) and I may like to pretend I`m trekking around paris when I use it. I`m a big nerd, but at least I`m not alone.

  9. Thanks! They're jeggings from the GAP! I got them during a 60% off sale so it was a really good price but I think they're well priced all the time anyway!

  15. Thanks! They are Steve Madden, 2 (?) seasons ago. I actually am on the hunt for a new pair of boots since my black ones are going to hell.

  16. I thought they might be Steve Madden. I also thought last week that my black boots had kicked the bucket (now on their 5th season) but thankfully my shoe repair go-to were able to fix and shine 'em up! Sent wirelessly from my BlackBerry device on the Bell network.
