Is it just me or does red look great during the colder season? Whether it's worn to match the red leaves on the autumn trees, gothically to symbolize blood during halloween, or during the christmas holiday season, it's just a great color for a coat.
I adore the red peplum ted baker coat. I never got into the peplum style, but on that paticular coat it lools incredibly chic.
Black and red always compliment each other, which is why each coat is paired with a black bag. But instead of shoes, I went with some perfume in dark beautifully designed bottles. Some perfume bottles make wonderful accessories. Though I can't give a review on any of the scents above.

The library used to be a rather stylish place to hang out. You'd see men and women dessed in their classy casuals while they took in a good read. My mom used to say "if you're single, dress up and go to the library, you'll meet someone." This piece of advice would be lovely if my local library wasn't filled with frazzled students crying over their late assignments or homeless people looking for a warm place to hide from the fall chill.
I wish I lived in a time when one could put on a cute outfit and go to the library. I've seen old vintage movies where even the frazzled students were stylishly stressed.
This set is a tribute to all those out there who still treat their local libraries as a fashion spot.

orange trenchcoats as I look at Halloween color schemes. This time, black trenches are paired with orange accessories for a different take on the black and orange combo. The more I see orange, the more I want it in my life.
The Lyla suede style wedge for example is very chic, even in orange. All the coats were paired with wedges, which came as a bit of a surprise to me since I don't care too much for wedge heels. But for some reason, orange looks great on a wedge; particularly the Pierre Hardy pony hair wedge. The contrasting grey and orange makes a bold yet fashionable statement.
I won't say orange is my favorite color, but I'll be wearing more often from here on in.

It's Friday morning and I'm unglamorously sipping hot cinnamon tea in my sweats while I swoon over Audrey Hepburn as Holly Goligtly in Breakfast at Tiffany's for the 678th time (it's probably more than that.) I'd rather be sipping champagne at Audrey's in one of the cocktail scenes. Little black dresses and vintage coats graze across the screen and before the movie ends I'm on polyvore looking for items that I can further swoon over.
