A Vintage Coat & Trendy Fishnets

















Look, I had to buy into the fishnet trend. It's so fun, and I've always wondered what it's like to wear a pair. It's odd. I know that now. I'm still going to wear them though.

I put most of this look together, and had no idea how to finish it off until I remembered this gem. This coat belonged to my great-grandmother, and it's usually kept away in one of my parents' closets for safekeeping. I was allowed to wear it a few times as a child, and it still fits the same, which says a lot about how small I actually am, believe it or not. It's incredibly chic and incredibly warm, and I'm afraid to move too much in it, because it's so dear to my mother. I probably won't borrow it again. I'm too clumsy. 

I have a small update to my birth control post. I finally stopped spotting, and I'm in the middle of a full period. I've cancelled the doctor's appointment, because it wasn't an emergency anymore, and I'm on a budget y'all. I'm hoping this means my hormones are finally balancing out. 

That's basically my week so far. That, and drooling over the new couture collections.

  2. Ahhhh, yes to working the fishnet trends! I fell in love with the trend when paired with regular jeans, but I love love love the look when going for full black! Such a great contrast with the hemline of the jeans too! And so much fun with the jacket and you great-grandmother, that's so awesome! Xx

  4. YES to the fishnets! I've literally just bought a pair and can't wait to style them - and like you, try them out for the first time! Love how you've got just a glimpse of these fishnets underneath the jeans.

  5. I don't think I have pizzazz to pull any of these off, but the shoes! I like that you have this twig just hanging in the middle of your wall and you're kicking at it.
