Fall Florals & inherited MaxMara coat

Sunday morning I was waiting for a friend to pick me up, and thought I'd snap a few pictures while I was standing outside. And of course I forgot my camera! Just pulled these pics off my iPhone so the quality is a little fuzzy.



I love this wool MaxMara coat. My mom was going to throw it out!! It was all ready in the Goodwill pile, and I was like NOOOOOOOOO its so beautiful and perfectly lightweight and super uber warm!!!



I just love the volume of this jacket. And it's naturally cinched at the waist. It has such great shape without being overwhelming. Quite the opposite actually, very slimming.



And the shoes are Steve Madden a la Margiela Spring 2008. I bought them during the frenzy for Margiela sandals when everyone, myself included, was craving this oddly shaped, non functional sandal boot.


They have the triangular heel, not stiletto heel, which I think is way cooler...



Anyways, it's inspired a huge wave of really disgusting shoes. I sort of cringe when I see ugly shoes on ugly feet.



Anyways, I think I liked these shoes originally because they were the leaders of the pack, and sort of reshaped what a shoe could look like. But now that they're so mainstream, I dont know if I feel as excited about them. But they do get a lot of stares still! Hehehehe...



The print of the dress--dark florals for fall.



And I just stuck a huge flower in my hair so I wouldn't have to brush it. Okieeee ttfn! Thanks for reading! :)))))))) I'm gonna go visit your blogs and buy some plane tickets!



I'm wearing a wool jacket by MaxMara, vintage babydoll dress, Steve Madden shoes a la Margiela Spring 2008, and two-toned gloves from Nordstrom.
