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.
