(Vintage Coat, Topshop Shirt/Heels, Viktoria & Woods Socks, Alexander Wang Bag)

Kind of rediscovered this coat when I was looking for something to wear around the city for a few meetings last week. Coats for me are the outfits I fall back on when I'm just too busy/uninspired to put something together. You can still make a statement with a buttoned up coat and you don't have to spend too much time on what to style it with because basically all you see are your shoes. It's always fun to change the buttons on your coat to give it a little more character too. Vintage buttons are so cheap and always fun and quirky, but then again isn't vintage in general just fun and quirky?

I didn't realise how "preppy" I looked until my friend Jessie pointed it out and afterward I couldn't stop laughing at how much I looked like I had walked out of Clueless with my black pencil skirt, knee highs and button up shirt. I suppose that would make a lot of sense as I watched that movie on the weekend. I don't know how it's possible but I still love everything they're wearing, and Alicia Silverstone is still as perfect as ever. Perhaps I'll leave the coat buttoned up and start working on not quoting Clueless every other minute of the day. "Hellooo, it was his 50th birthday!" doesn't really apply to every day conversation.

  9. This coat is precious! The dalmatian accents make it so sweet. And I'm a big fan of changing out the buttons on a shirt/coat to make it a bit more fresh.

  32. That coat is pretty amazing. Love the way the buttons match the cuffs. Then again, I do love Clueless fashion too! Sometimes I still like to reinterpret the styles for a modern look. Favourite Clueless line = (about the stop sign) "I totally paused".

  33. Totally agree, great coat! Love the thigh-highs combination xoxo

  38. yup, loving the dalmatian spots! wore my Cruella DeVille dress the other day but in comparison to your coat my dress was more along the lines of "sometimes you have to show a little skin. this reminds boys of being naked, and then they think of sex." and i say a little prayer to Hollywood tape.

  49. Darling! And by the way, Clueless is one of my fav films of all time. Watched it everyday after school during the 9th grade. "You're probably thinking, is this like a Noxzema commercial or what? But seriously, I have a way normal life for a teenage girl. I mean, I get up, brush my teeth, and pick out my school clothes..." I even reenacted scenes from that movie for my drama class. :)
