Outfit: Favorite Things

Free People Coat // ASOS Dress // gifted Lookmatic Sunglasses // DIY Necklace // BaubleBar Necklace

Express Tights (the best!) // gifted Schutz Shoes (similar) // Chanel Bag

I’m wearing a lot of favorite things in this outfit.  I bought this dress rather inexpensively at ASOS and have already worn it so many times that it’s paid for itself.  It’s so easy to dress up or down.  The coat was a gift from Stefan… putting it on makes me happy.  I’m now convinced that every girl needs a faux fur coat in her wardrobe…  they are so much fun to wear.  I layer the BaubleBar necklace with everything… .and love how well it pairs with my DIY Erickson Beamon necklace.  Lastly, a brief word about the tights… Express makes the best ones.  So opaque + thick but not crazypants expensive.  Every Fall I buy four pairs and live in ’em.  Even Wolford doesn’t hold a candle to them… I’m serious.

    OK, if you want to give your bloggie friend a hanukkah gift (hint, hint!) 🙂 … it’s this rosette necklace. SO beautiful, Grace, and you look stunning. I fully want to take this entire outfit.

    I LOVE this outfit, Grace. Perfection!

  12. Johanna says 11.30.12

    Grace, I love your outfit! I have to make that necklace asap! Also, I would love to DIY your sunglasses. I’m guessing as I’d need to do is super glue pieces of leather (carefully cut out ones, of course) to the corners of my cat-eye sunglasses?

    I love that coat! I’m searching for a faux fur animal print coat to add to my wardrobe. I never would’ve thought to check Free People!

    I’m in your neck of the woods right now visiting my sister for her birthday and we ventured over to Brooklyn and I found the best faux fur caplet from a vintag shop. My sister picked up this great ombre oversized faux fur jacket. It was a jackpot of a trip across to Brooklyn!
