Back to Black



coat - Asos, t-shirt - Black & Bold, jeans - Hudson from Aritzia, bag - Marc by Marc Jacobs, shoes - Dolce Vita from The Bay, cross necklace - Top Shop, scarf and rings - H & M, beanie - LOST

This is my first outfit post of 2013! A little late, I know but I'm back and fully clothed! I had my eye on the jacket I'm wearing from Asos since September and I finally bought it right before Christmas. It's a classic closet staple I know I'll get a lot of wear out of year in and year out. One of my New Year's "resolutions" if you can call it that is to stop buying cheap clothes that I'll only wear for only 6-12 months and instead invest in pieces I know I'll wear for years, maybe even decades if the quality is high. A bigger bang for your buck, if you will ; ).

Did you all watch the Golden Globes last night? You can check my Facebook page to see who I chose for Best and Worst dressed, you may (or may not be) surprised.

Have a great week!

I like the details of this jacket, a great piece that as you said you'll get a lot of use out of!

I'll have to see what you thought of the red carpet looks from the Golden Globes, I seem to of liked a lot of things most people hated ha ha!

My big goal this year for my closet is to finish my sewing projects and to focus more on making pieces than just going shopping!

You look stunning!! I love the different textures on your jacket and I really like your bag. I only watch a part of the Golden Globes awards ceremony but I did see the entire red carpet show.

That sounds like a really good resolution! I made that promise to myself once, but it's so hard to stick to it :) Anyway, I love this jacket! The leather details make this basic black coat so much more interesting! x
