Leather & Brown

If it looks like I'm wearing enough layers for 3 people, it's because I am. Guys, I'm telling ya, I probably win the award for most layers put on the human body to keep warm in the winter. I can stack up to 8 layers if I wanted, but this particular outfit it was only 7.

Ever since moving to New York, I have been totally obsessed with the Buffalo Exchanges', CrossRoads', and Beacon's Closets' around here because Tennessee doesn't have awesome thrift places like these. I found this (men's) Prada coat in Chelsea, in my opinion, the best Buffalo Exchange. Also, it doesn't help with the fact there's no tax on clothing and shoes over $110, so you can only imagine how crazy I've gotten.

Purple Haze

 One color that I definitely do not have a lot in my closet is purple. I absolutely love the color, but I never seem to find anything that's a nice shade. So I stepped out of my little neutral colored box and came up with this look. What do you think?

p.s. I found the perfect necklace in Soho the other week. :p

Camel

 These over-sized lapel coats are my total favorites. Although when you tie it, it turns into a robe, but hey even better, right? A socially acceptable robe. I paired it with a black and white look and topped it off with this faux fur headband.
P.S. Who also goes crazy when Zara releases these season sales!?

L8r 2014 - Hey 2015

2014 has been one hell of a roller coaster for me. Way too many downs, but it always seemed to go back up. Going into the new year, I spent it in no other than Times Square. I went to the Jekyll and Hyde Club for the most part and was outside for the second part. Seeing Times Square on ABC has always been meh, but actually being there and sardined into the crowd and being hella cold is a whole other level of experience that I'd rather just do once in my life to knock off the bucket list. With everything being rowdy and chaotic, it was fun. I got to see T Swizzle perform, so that's always a definite plus!

Dress Layers

 I hope everyone had a great Christmas, because I sure did! This year, I strayed away from the typical red and stuck with neutral colors. As I've stated before, I layer up pretty darn well. This is the dress edition! I piled on a cami, t-shirt, turtleneck, button up, and topped it with a long sleeved dress. For underneath, I layered leggings with sweater tights. You guys. Sweater tights are your best friends for the winter!

The Art of Layers

Temporarily living in New York has caused me to become an onion. I'm wearing a whomping of 6 layers. Yes. 6, and guess what. I don't look like a stuffed marshmallow! My layers consist of a cami, t-shirt, turtleneck, button up, sweater, and the ending layer: my long ass creeper coat.

This has been my daily uniform (the layering technique that is).  Everything else just interchanges from coat to coat; layer to layer.
