Wardrobe Staple

In my post HERE, I wrote about the wonders of when I found the right coat. And this coat is the same exact one, except it’s in a classic camel color. Though it’s traditional, I will wear it so much.
I believe everyone should have a go-to camel coat. It’s a staple and it goes well with everything.

The Perfect Coat

It took me forever to find the perfect coat and when I did I purchased it in this berry-burgundy shade and in the classic camel color. I cannot express how frustrating it was to find something of .. 1. the perfect length, 2. the sleeves didn’t have to be tailored too much, and
3. the coat wouldn’t drown me.

The coat measures 33″ in length on me and the sleeves were 32″ so I took it in 2 3/4″. Now it’s perfectly tailored and I will wear it for seasons to come!

Did you have trouble finding that ONE perfect piece? And if you did find it, what happened? I would love to hear your story so comment below. 🙂

Gemini Link – Thrifted

I love a good thrift find .. like this Tory Burch Gemini Bag for six whole dollars! I went in to find something else that I would use once but ended up with this purchase instead. I didn’t grow up a thrift shopper at all (not that I was against it) but I didn’t find interest in it until I was in my early 20’s.
And now I find good treasures that used to have a story behind them.
How do you feel about thrift shopping? And have you found a good treasure from it?

Satin Skirt Trend

I’m currently obsessing over this satin skirt trend. It’s so comfortable (a little thin for Winter Wear) and can be dressed up or down. I paired it with a wool sweater and love it for the office!

If you’re thinking of trying a trend this season, you should go with this one. You won’t think twice.

Moto Jacket Casual

If you don’t already know, I am obsessed with Zara! I only discovered them a little over a year ago and let me just say … I don’t know why this brand wasn’t discovered sooner.
I also love anything in a blush shade so when I came across this piece, I purchased it without hesitation! And second, I got it from the girl’s section so it was half the price of what a woman’s coat would normally cost.

I suppose there are perks to being extra petite. You sometimes find great pieces at great prices.

Feminine Fall


If you’ve been following me for a while, you will know that I’m a huge fan of streamlined, tailored pieces because I’m extra petite. These kinds of pieces are fluid and straight throughout so it doesn’t drown my stature.

So when I began to experiment with wider shapes, like these wide leg pants, I was a little worried that it wouldn’t work. The idea I had worked up in my mind was imaginatively perfect, but of course things sometimes don’t work out. Like the time I tried over-sized coats or ankle boots that ran directly across your ankles. It really looked like I was 5 and playing dress up and the booties cut my body up, making me even shorter.


… but in this case, I tailored the pants to my exact shape and voila! .. it was perfection. Aside from the successful experiment, the color combination of this outfit screams pure Femininity. .. As the word runs along this tee.


I love every thing about being feminine and fearless. And this outfit proves just that. When you dress amazingly, you feel amazing.
