The Couch Coat for Fall
Hey there good lookin’.
Well the sun may still be out here in Seattle, but fall has arrived. The colors of the leaves are slowly changing to yellows and reds, and the temperature is getting quite chilly – chilly enough to break out your favorite fall coat! So I had to break out my couch coat, as my friend calls these coats – for all we know, there’s a factory that turns old couches from the 60s into stylish new mod fall coats! This mustard yellow plaid + burgundy + black + brown outfit makes me look like a walking autumn tree – and I’m totally into that, so it’s OK.
Fall is my favorite season for fashion, and being a blogger, I get to share some of the looks I put together with you. And get ready for tons of pics in this post – my friend at FlashShots Photag. did such an amazing job I couldn’t narrow it down to just a couple (plus don’t we all want to see this couch coat from every possible angle?).
What I’m Wearing: I’m rocking my favorite oxblood lipstain from YSL (it’s the most amazing lipstain gloss I’ve ever used) – and this will probably end up being my statement lip color for fall this year (hope you like it, get ready to see it a lot). The coat is vintage (but this one from Anthro is amazing. My top is from Forever21 (another great blouse here), the bag is gifted from my good friend Heather’s trip to NYFW & the boots are Steve Madden (similar here). The wonderful printed scarf is something I picked up in Italy back in 2008, and it’s still my favorite fall accessory.
