Just a quick little outfit post to break the radio silence. I had a busy weekend with the Coach Holiday Blogger Campaign party, working until my fingernails break and spending time with Bobby on his only day off in two weeks.

Huge thank you to all of you who came out to support me and my awesome peers. I loved meeting you all and I hope you had a great time! I expect to see videos of everyone's flipbooks. Holly and the lovely ladies of Trois Femmes posted theirs - check them out!

    Without even touching or looking at a sewing machine.

    love your shoes and bag!! incredible outfit overall. :)

  3. Thank you..... you look amazing as usual :)

  4. Love love love that bright red coat and that coach bag. Wish I could have gone to the Coach holiday party - being stuck in Texas sucks! So glad it's finally cooler weather so I can break out my jackets, coats, and tights now!

  6. İ like ur headband..can U tell his brand?

  7. Love the pop of colour with that outfit!
    and perfecting it with the headband!:)

  8. I think this is one of my all time favorite outfits of yours. The dress is so gorgeous - very luxe but totally works for the day. That velvet coat is a magic thrifted find, so unique and special.
    I read so many blogs but yours is a breath of fresh air amongst the skinny jeans. You dress so femininely yet totally youthfully, fashionably and contemporarily. I find it really inspiring.
    I hope I haven't embarrassed you. I'll stop gushing now!
