One of my favorite all time people designed this coat – Gilles Montezin. He’s the loveliest and most creative designer. Every piece I have from him I cherish. His designs are so feminine and make me feel so glamorous! I love him both as a designer and a person.
I find the time I bring this coat out the most is during the holidays, and then I remember how much I love it and I wear it both dressy and casual for the rest of the coat season. I know it’s unexpected but I wear it with jeans, boots and a fur scarf just running around doing errands – but that’s just how I roll. Not everyone would throw this coat on over jeans, but they should. I like mixing the unexpected.
The design is impeccable. When you’re choosing a coat, you should pick one that you can envision making a statement all on its own. During the winter months it’s the first thing people see – it’s the icing on the cake. As I always say – look as good coming into the party as you do when you’re at the party. A coat shouldn’t be an after thought. My mother taught me that! We always had beautiful overcoats growing up. It’s a piece worth investing in even if you live in a place like Dallas. If you choose well you will be able to rely on it even longer. I’ve had this coat for quiet awhile now.
What I’m wearing it with:
– Theory pants
– Anya hindmarch patent clutch
– Jimmy Choo Shoes
– Diamond Pin
Gotta go Girls – Holiday parties are calling! Have a fabulous Saturday evening. XOXO
