I love the color red (such a strong color!) and I love a beautiful coat. So, when I laid my eyes on this gorgeous cherry red (“lollipop red”) Kate Spade coat last year, I had to have it. A beautiful classic coat is a closet staple. This coat feels so luxurious when I wear it. It is lined beautifully, and my favorite part is the big fun bow which snaps on at the front. I kind of feel like a big walking present! Coco Chanel would have approved of this coat. If you look closely, I also love the big beautiful buttons on this coat. I paired the look with little emerald studs, and a skinny black headband. Any time I wear a headband I instantly feel more girly. This whole look reminds me of something Blair Waldorf would wear!
Of course, I had to wear my trusty Christian Louboutin’s so that the red sole of the shoe would pop with the red coat!
While I was wearing this coat I was stopped by a former stylist walking his dog (who said “nice pins”), an elderly woman also walking her dog who adored the coat, and the man who lives in the brownstone behind me! Later in the day I wore it to Rolf’s for eggnog, and I was also stopped by a group of middle-aged moms. This coat is such a fun and whimsical statement in itself, and I plan to wear and enjoy it for years to come!
