Style Diary: Fall Coats

It seems every year, I end up buying a new coat.  It’s not like I need another.  It’s just that I’m terrible at resisting the new fashions.  And coats are such easy purchases to rationalize.  After all, I figure that they’re practical AND stylish.  And being that it’s an outerwear piece, it practically ends up paying for itself within just the first season that I wear it. (I’m good, aren’t I?)

This year, there were a couple coats that I found irresistible.  The first one that I fell in love with is this Ann Taylor leopard coat.  I liked the unique color scheme on the leopard print.  It’s a softer, more subdued print, isn’t it?  Plus I got a great deal during their friends and family 40% off sale.   This is how I wore it at the Juicy Couture Spring 2012 Presentation .

Here you see me wearing it with skinny corduroy black jeans, Aldo booties, bling necklace a swingy tee which you can’t see, Chanel purse and the new coat.  More on the Juicy couture presentation later.

This past week I also wore the coat to work with this Tibi dress from Saks.

The Cynthia Rowley fur-trimmed cardigan is from an amazing Marshall’s deal that I found for $35.  The BCBG suede shoes were on sale for $60, the Tibi dress on sale for around $100 and the hello kitty purse a couple hundred.

My 2nd coat purchase is a sale coat from Saks also by Tibi.  I fell in love with this because it was also something completely different from what I already owned and looked so modern and glam.

Guess what!  The Tibi coat is convertible and can be turned into a fur vest for warmer days.  Here, I’ve worn it with a necklace from Off 5th, Calvin Klein dress from Marshall’s, bracelet from Ann Taylor Loft, and suede fringed boots. It was a simple dress with no hanger appeal.  I knew it had great styling potential though.  My favorite part about the dress are its pockets – perfect for hiding a lip gloss or cell phone.

Is anyone else excited to layer and dress for the fall weather?
