Expedition Winter Coat (or Jacket) No. 2

The review of the short ones! As promised I hereby review some of the nicest short winter jackets of this season. Or, at least the ones that have been in stores at this moment. I suppose some brands will introduce a few in-between-season-jackets later this season, but most of the collections have been sent out by now. The one that really made my day is the salmon fake fur jacket by Modström. The colour is spectacular and matches with most of the hair and skin colours. Besides that it is a colour that immediately upgrades most of the dated wardrobes. Furthermore, for me fake fur is the ultimate winter jacket fabric. I feel powerfull, glamourous and, of course, completely protected against the cold.

Expedition Winter Coat No. 1

Inspired by the cold weather influences I’ve experienced last week I’ve enjoyed focussing on this season’s winter coats. What have we already seen arrive in stores and what can we expect to dominate the upcoming autumn/winter season? As always ;-), this time I want something different! Something that can really lighten up my winter coat wardrobe! Something that not only can be a winter coat but also A WINTER COAT! So… Now you know my mission for the upcoming months! Below I’ve made a little collection of nice long winter coats to examine (Y.A.S., Michael Kors, Ted Baker, ARMA Leder (x 2!), TOPSHOP, DEPT & NIKKIE). Next time I will focus on the short ones!

YES, it’s time for glovin’!

Although I’m not totally ready to cover my hands yet, I know I’ll have to face it soon. At least if I want to keep my nice and soft baby-like skin for a little bit longer. Or, being realistic, if I don’t want my hands to feel like sandpaper this winter. As you can see I have some trouble seeing gloves as an elegant accessory that might take my outfit to a higher level. On the other ‘hand’, when I start looking for a nice pair I can really get carried away. Especially the leather ones have my special attention. So, let’s look at some nice ones!

The “Stunning” gloves from Asos are my favourite, just te remind me they are…
