Happy Holidays Fashion Friends!
I'm excited to participate in another link party! 'Tis the season to party, right? This time I am partying with FASH DET. The fashion bloggers of Detroit have decided to rock outerwear! YAY! Glad they invited all of us who are not from Detroit. I will admit since I've started to blog I have been neglecting to feature my coats and outer jackets. Shame on me. So needless to say I was thrilled to participate. Now on to the coats! Let's rock!!
This first Coat look is one of my faves...the Pea Coat! I love any kind of pea coat. I paired my wool blend winter white pea coat with my fleece cobalt ruffle scarf made by mom (in which I think I will do my first give away soon..stay tuned!) Winter has a sneaky way of making us cover up all our beautiful goodies in our wardrobe so we have to find ways to express our sense of style with our outerwear. This jacket and scarf helps me express myself without effort. Can you all hear me expressing myself?!? lol
Pea Coat: Ashley Stewart (about 3-5 years ago)
Fleece Ruffle Scarf: Made My Ms. D (my mom)
Scarf comes in several prints and colors. See the purple here in a previous post.

This next coat is my baaaaby! I've had this coat for several years now. It actually started out to be more functional than anything but quickly turned to be a major fashion staple for me in the winter. OK, y'all...I despise my legs to be cold! Because of this I wasn't wearing skirts or dresses in the winter time much until I found this maxi princess cut dress coat. About 10 or 11 years ago I went searching for the perfect wool coat. My only criteria was that it had to be as long as possible to cover up my gams. So when I started to look it was more for function...the fashion was secondary. Well...needless to say I was happy when I found this baby! I have loved it from the day I bought it. I have changed the buttons on it twice and get excited when I get it out the cleaners for the first time every season.
Also, every time this coats makes its first appearance for the season, my darling hubby says, without fail "Luke, I am you father" he calls it my Darth Vader coat...Please don't judge him. lol
Although it is a dress coat and I wear it to church regularly, I have chosen to actually dress it down at times. You know... get the feel of the celebrity in the "furs and distressed jeans" look? Because this coat is very warm...in the dead of winter, jeans, boots and a funky hat and scarf sets it off! Did I tell you all I love my coat?!?
Maxi Princess Cut Dress Coat: Burlington Coat Factory
Shoes: Go Jane (as seen in previous post)
