There are days where the words go straight from my brain through my fingers typing on the keyboard to the computer screen. This evening though is not one of those days.. as I'm really really tired. I had to work a lot this weekend as well.. and of course, the horrible events of last week were still going through my mind.
But I guess the best thing to do is to consider myselves lucky and blessed to be here. And to be doing what I love.. which is (amongst other things) fashion!
Some looks can be considered a classic and I think wearing a trench coat definitely fits in that category. Most trench coats come in black, beige or tan.. but when I was young, I vividly remember seeing a young woman walking in a red trench coat with patterned tights and red pumps. That colourful image was etched into my memory!
I've had these Steve Madden heels for years now and finding patterned tights wasn't particularly hard either, but a good-looking and well-fitting trench coat in the right colour red? That's a real challenge! :-P
To be honest (and I'm always honest :-P), I'd probably dress this outfit down by wearing boots and a skirt or dress that actually peeks out under the trench coat.
For this photo-shoot, I thought I'd have a bit of fun though!
Like I said, I have had these red 5 inch Steve Madden heels for over 4 years and I'm still in love with them. Not suitable for hours of shopping and sight-seeing, but great for indoor parties, dinners and formal events! :)
Do you think they're still stylish and fashionable to wear?
Anyway, are you still holding on to pumps and skirts/dresses? Or have you already switched to jeans and trousers and Uggs? ;-)
I made a video of this outfit and you will notice that I did not just wear patterned tights! :-P
