"The trench coat is the only thing that has kept its head above water." - Jack Lipman

16 September 2011

Hola everyone!
I pulled out my trench-cape today, because the weather has gotten quite chilly in the midwest. This cape makes me so happy. A truly fun piece to wear if you don't mind having cold arms from the elbow down. Sometimes I don't use the slits, and I keep my upper limbs hidden under the cape. Muahaha...rebel.

There's a belt to add some definition to the waist. I look pretty cool from the back... not gonna lie. Topshop knows what they're doing.

Below is actually my new cashmere sweater that I'll be wearing all winter. I've been on the hunt for more, in order to expand my cashmere collection after discovering how warm they kept me last winter (thanks Marta)!

C'est tout! I'll be hopping on a plane to Toronto for the last weekend of September, and I might hit an exciting event. That is ... if I don't get too lazy/ caught up with my friends.

Cheers everyone! Have a phenomenal weekend.
