Rebecca Taylor quilted jacket & RL on sale (see FabbyDeals)

Sweater: Vince
Jeans: J Brand
Scarf: Alexander McQueen
Shoes: Tod’s
Happy Saturday! The last few days were hectic for me. Post-surgical care for my animals requires an analgesic injection every 12 hours, so I had to get up before 5:30 am ~ The last injection was given this morning, and I will get up late tomorrow 🙂 …

From now on, we might need spend most of our weekend time in homedepot rather than shopping malls. It is our first time buying a new construction home, and there are lots of new issues we need to face, from the roof and windows to the appliance and systems. We are nervous but excited!

The quilted leather jacket I wore today (also here), made by Rebecca Taylor, is currently on sale at RT official website. It comes in two colors: bordeaux and black. 

This leather jacket, which has filling and lining, is a good alternative of winter coats. you can wear it with jeans, skirts or even dresses. I bought mine in size small (xs was sold out by then; for your reference, I am 5’4 and 109 lb), which is roomy on me. I feel this jacket is true to size. Here is the lay-flat measurements (size small):
bust (under armpits) = 37 ”
armpit-to-hem length = 11 1/2 ”
shoulder-to-hem length = 19 1/2 ”
sleeve from armpit = 19 1/2 ”
Before close, I also want to share my new makeup case with you: TUMI travel kit (here at NM, or here) . It is a gift from a FABBY-reader / friend. Thank you so much! I can see it with me in the next several years, for gym and travel~

Thank you for your reading!

Club Monaco Julie turtleneck wool top & DVF fur vest

Happy Monday! Drop a quick hello. Share you couple pictures from the last Sunday. It was sunny and relatively warm. This is the look for grocery and a stroll in the mall.
Instead of pairing with flare leg jeans (style here), I paired this cropped vest with skinny jeans and wedge boots (same style in black here; grey here).

DVF fox fur vest & flare leg jeans

Hi all, after 10-day wait, I received both my fox fur vests (DVF and Vince). Both of them are super soft and well made. I decided to keep both. They not only have different styles and functions (I will introduce both of them in this and the next post), but also are worth the investment. Do you notice how much the price goes up this year? 

Compared to Vince fox (hair only) fur vest, DVF vest is more chunky. You may not be able to layer this vest underneath any coat; actually I tried at home, and I did look like wearing football protective gears underneath, lol. Well, this vest can seriously keep you warm. I wore this outfit in an upper 40F winter day, and did not feel cold. Quality wise, I have no complaint so far. I did not notice any significant (fox) hair falling throughout the day, which happened to my lamb fur vest at the very beginning.

You have different choices to wear this vest: with skinny jeans and boots (as Michelle paired here), or with pencil / flare leg jeans and heels. For my height (5’4), I prefer the later pairing. What is your preference in wearing a fur vest? I added a skinny belt to create a peplum top look, which may also help to elongate the legs. Instead of flare leg jeans, a mini skirt or shirt dress will also be good choices for this vest. I can’t wait to experiment different pairings… Do you have any other suggestions?

Vince Draped Boiled Wool Jacket & Burberry Down Coat

I love layering during the hush winter in Cleveland, Ohio. The great thing about layering is keeping you warm when you were outside, while still staying stylish and comfy when you are indoor. On another hand, layering allows more creativities: simply adding another piece you can build an entirely different outfit.

I want to share some layering tips:

1. Stick to the same color family. No matter your choice, try to go with colors that can all fit in the same color family.
2. Layering a longer thinner piece under a shorter thicker piece. Wearing a tunic style long sleeve shirt under a short leather jacket with 3/4 sleeves and a scarf can give you a stylish and chic look.
3. Mix different fabric.  The rule is thinner, lighter fabric always stay underneath.
4. Defined waist makes petite frame more proportional.  Try a belt or fitted jacket to give some shape and dimension to the outfit.
5. Scarf is an essential item to achieve a layered look.

Fabby readers, do you have other layering ideas want to share with us?

Burberry double-breasted wool coat: Gucci sale @ NM

(Burberry wool coat + J Brand skinny + Belle by Sigerson Morrison boots + LV neverfull)

Share couple pictures of my favorite Burberry double-breasted wool coat! I love Burberry winter collections, especially these couple years when their sizes are more friendly to petite girls (P or sz 2). 

Mine was bought last year, while there are couple similar good styles available this season (check here and here). One thing I would like to mention is that the same style in different colors may have different textures. Last year, the light gray coat that I have was softer to touch than dark gray ones. Small size (sz 2) goes very fast, so I would not expect to find them on the sale rack.

(Theory sweater + Tory Burch all-over T scarf)

The teal sweater is made by Theory, a super good deal from Theory outlet store at $66. Do you notice that Theory size goes small these couple years? The Theory crimson wool sweater (mentioned in the previous entry) was sent back to the store because it was too tight and short on me. I prefer a longer sweater, which can be easily worn with skinny jeans/pants, in the winter time.

Does my scarf remind you LV classic shawl? It is the Tory Burch all-over T scarf (different colors: light camel, violet and tree green). The quality is comparable to LV classic shawl, and size is slightly smaller. In the recent couple years, the decent quality at an affordable price makes TB clothing and accessories stand out from other brands. Check them if you get a chance! By the way, the color I wear is called ‘timberwolf’.

Cone-shape coat by Opening Ceremony & Over-the-knee boots

Happy Monday! I read a blog post of tips for wearing coats, and if you are a coat lover like me, you might want to read this article. 

This A-line coat by Opening Ceremony was bought last season, the style of which is significantly different from my other Burberry coats. Though it seemed to be simple and easy-to-wear on the mannequin, it is the most troublesome piece in my closet. 1) It is A-line, but the hem is too wide for a petite girl like me (5’4); 2) It is not only A-line, but also cone-shaped. It makes me look ‘stronger’ from the side; 3) The combination of the colors and style of this coat seems to be too casual to wear any heels. So far, the best pairing I found for this coat is with Via Spiga over-the-knee boots. Taken together, petite girls might want to think carefully before buy a cone-shape coat!

Mentioning over-the-knee boots, I have to say Stuart Weitzman 5050 is a legend! It can magically conceal any imperfect of your legs. However, if you don’t want to spend $595 on a pair of boots made with 30% synthetic and 70% leather, you may consider Via Spiga Georgia! Via Spiga Georgia has leather upper and lining. It is true to size, but may not fit girls with very skinny legs. Besides, if you have high arch, you may want to go up a half size, otherwise it may not be easy to pull it on. 

Thank you for your reading, and have a great start of the week!
