Purple perfection

Do you ever think about what your favorite items are? What your best purchases were?
Well, this was not only the steal of the year, but one of my favorite purchases as well. 
I found this Christian Lacroix coat at a local consignment shop.
I am actually not entirely sure if it's vintage or not although judging by the shoulder pads I am leaning towards it. The reason I question it at all, is because it is in such mint condition, and it just feels new and modern. 
Since I already posted it on Instagram it's no secret that it was only $89.99!!!!!!
The structure, the color...I am truly in love!

In this post  I layered my fur vest over my coat, this time, under. 
I love this little fur vest, it's always there to add a bit of layered texture. 
And as for the bling, don't hide it under your winter-wear.
Statement necklaces look great over a turtleneck and cuffs look great over gloves...just a little tip for all my lovely readers...

so unique to you - so good.

You have such a strong sense of style - you could make anything modern.

THOSE JEANS. Don't know if they came with holes or not, but they're perfection.

The fur vest is so chic under the coat and I'm dying over that jewel-toned purple. I also loved how you mixed the "grungy" knee-showing bottoms with the top portion. Stopping by from the linkup!

Hi, that jacket and the boots are fabulous...I don't care where they are from! :)

Monika Faulkner said...

The colour of this coat is just out-of-this-world!! Add the designer label and the insane (in the best way!) price, and I'm thinking "find of the DECADE"...not just the year!!
