MISSGUIDED US - SHIRT, SHOES, BAG
PETER PILOTTO x TARGET - SWEATER
This outfit is one big trend jumble, they say you shouldn't combine too many but they all work so well. There is some mesh, perforation, pastel, platform sandals, midi skirt, checks, and sporty chic...that's not too many right? I think the sporty chic look is one of my favorite trends of all time.
Anyhow, this is also a very significant moment for my blog as this is the first time I am working with a brand. That brand being Missguided. It couldn't be a better fit seeing as it is very similar to one of my favorite sites - Nasty Gal - but British! Missguided now sells online to the US, making some fun style and British beauty products available to us here. Their tag line is 'peace, love and fashion' and they sell sort of edgy basics and trends. Lots of crop tops and form fitting dresses. I first discovered this brand through another blogger that resides in England before knowing that it was actually available here.
My love of England means I have an obsession with British brands and think they are somehow so much more cool and unique than all the brands in the States. I still remember when I checked Rivers Island everyday hoping to one day go to England to shop there (having since become available via the wonderful fashion ecomm boom.) So it makes me infinitely happy when others in the US can discover these oh so cool brands and products.

COAT - Narciso Rodriguez x DesigNation
HAT - Minnie Rose NYC
COTTON ON - Sweater and Velvet Leggings
I'm just going to throw it out there...it's pretty annoying to see so many outfit posts during winter in coats, skirts and sandals. It's just not what people are really wearing is it? Too bad we don't all live in LA.
Living Downtown, I walk everywhere so keeping my feet warm is my biggest concern in the cold weather. My cobalt blue "bathrobe" coat that fits over all my sweater and jackets as well as these giant furry boots have been getting me through the winter.
This is also the first time in my life that I have ventured to wear a hat! Normally I think they make me look silly but this cashmere hat from Minnie Rose is perfect and fun to wear.

FOREVER 21 JEANS, GOLD CHAIN BOOTS & GLOVES
PHILIP LIM FOR TARGET BAG
L'OREAL LIPSTICK - VOLCANIC ORANGE
This outfit was inspired by this coat that I picked up on whim. The texture and color give this classic style a little update. I really love the boxy shape that gives it a menswear vibe. I'm all over the trend in menswear inspired style and large over sized pieces...it means I can wear my normal size and still feel like my cloths are too large. It does wonders for body image (said while rolling my eyes.)
All the while here's the tune to set the mood to this look:
