Feminine Flare

Friday, March 15, 2013 103 0

Coat: Jacob (c/o). Top: H&M. Shoes: Boutique 9. Belt: BCBG (from a dress). Tights: Hue. Handbag: Chanel. Sunglasses: Chanel.

 

I’ll venture to say that almost any Canadian woman you stop on the street would say that they have at least one item from Jacob hanging in their closet.   I already had my eye on this flirty flared trench coat when the sweet people at Jacob offered to let me choose a piece from their new Spring collection.  Of course, I’m a sucker for the pretty blue colour and feminine flared shape.  I’m really excited to experiment at bit with this coat and actually wear it as a dress once the weather warms up a bit.  I can already picture wearing it with bare legs, my sparkly citron Anthropologie belt (as worn here), and maybe my yellow Nine West pumps.

    This is my favorite color on you- the cobalt blue looks great with your skin/hair each time you wear it Jenny!

      Aww, thanks so much Rachel! I do tend to stick to the “cool” colours. I feel like they look better on me.

    I thought it WAS a dress! I love the striped accents, especially the striped shirt sleeves peeking through. Very flirty, fun and cute.

    This cut is SO flattering on you! And with the black and white accents you kind of remind me of a character from a Tim Burton movie for some reason. I love Tim Burton so that’s def a compliment. 🙂

    Blessings!

    Cobalt is your color! The trench looks lovely on you. And I love how you combined it with the black and white accents. I recently purchased the Kelsi Dagger Eliza pumps in black and white and I pair them with all my candy colored coats. I thought I’d share this because you appear to be a shoe-aholic like me 🙂

    • Jenny
      March 15, 2013

      Ooohh, I just Googled those shoes and they are beautiful! LOVE the black and white! You are right…I bet they look so good with candy colored coats!!! Thanks so much for your sweet comments and for sharing those shoes, Mary! 🙂

    Love this color on you 🙂
    I use to only shop at Jacob, that’s how obsessed I was with that store, so yes I own many pieces from them
    I have also thought about wearing their jackets like this as a dress, but sometimes that slit in the back would make it too revealing for moi, if ya know what I mean 😉
    Have an awesome weekend Jenny!

    • Jenny
      March 17, 2013

      Thanks so much Donna! Ha ha, well obviously you know the brand very well then! 🙂 Yes, I would definitely still wear a slip or short skirt underneath it just in case. 🙂
