STYLE / 75

ok ok, one more coat. this lauren moffatt wool coat is one of those items you have for years and years. it goes with this fancy vintage dress but would also look great with jeans and flats. it has big gold buttons, an interesting collar and wonderful striped lining…

i stumbled upon this vintage party dress for only $38. can you believe it? although, i can really only wear it for a maximum of 3 hours because of that corset style. it’s a beautiful dress, but it’s sure not one that i can easily wear on a pizza/pasta/carb-filled adventure. unless you do what i do and unzip it in the back and put the coat over it. how did girls wear those corsets all the time?

i am traveling home today from san francisco and can’t wait to just be in LA for a little while. i just looked at my calendar and saw there was absolutely nothing scheduled for this weekend. arian asked if i wanted to go on a mini-vacation somewhere together…which sounds nice. but sitting around in our pajamas sounds reeeeaaaallly nice too.

    I love these bright sunny pictures when you pair them with red lips, it’s such a great combo. That dress is beautiful, nothing beats finding a standout piece for your closet that is under $50

    so so pretty – the coat and the dress!

  • 7. Conny  |  November 6th, 2012 at 9:29 am

    I am in love with how effortless and pretty this outfit is. That dress is a Rockstar! :)

  • 8. brittan  |  November 6th, 2012 at 9:30 am

    Oh my gosh Bri! That dress kind of reminds me of Leisl Von Trap (sound of music) and the scoop neck dress she wears in the gazebo. I love that cut, it is so flattering… SO PERFECT. Kind of can’t gush enough. in love.

    Serious question: how did you get your hair to be/stay that long? I’m doing something wrong. Please teach me!

  • 10. Leigh  |  November 6th, 2012 at 9:35 am

  • 13. Natalie / Half Asleep Studio  |  November 6th, 2012 at 11:13 am

    Gorgeous dress! Ah, the price of beauty, eh?

  • 14. Sarah  |  November 6th, 2012 at 11:36 am

    I love a coat with great lining! But I’m a little jealous that a warm coat doesn’t seem to be entirely necessary in LA!

    This is a huge national holiday and you’re posting photos of yourself? Come on! You have a great big following of people – urge them to actually make a difference and and get out and vote! I’m not quite sure how a style post is relevant today.

    dear anonymous, in case you didn’t get the memo, this is where type and images totally make out, NOT politics. I find it completely refreshing that she is not shoving her political agenda down our throats.

  • 17. Bettina  |  November 6th, 2012 at 3:13 pm

    This pairing is so chic and so very subtly patriotic :)

  • 18. Naomi A  |  November 6th, 2012 at 4:36 pm

    You look absolutely stunning, my dear! I love your dress~

  • 20. rachael  |  November 6th, 2012 at 9:22 pm

    hooooooly, that coat is LUSH. retro! what a perfect vintage dress..and so cheap!

  • 21. Latrina  |  November 7th, 2012 at 10:42 am

    So stinking cute! But I can see where it’ll be uncomfortable after a while. I’m not sure how the ladies wore those things back then… I’m very picky with how fabric and clothing feels on me, so I know I couldn’t do it lol

  • 22. Catfish & Caviar  |  November 7th, 2012 at 12:10 pm

    Love everything!!! Esp the hair :)
