Central Park – Modern Glamour

Miss Selfridge coat, , Francesca’s legging/pants, ShoeDazzle heels, Prada sunnies

I know it’s spring but what better excuse than freezing cold NY to finally style my tartan top and 1970’s camel coat that had been gathering dust in my closet? Of course we got lucky and it wasn’t as cold as the previous day (during which it was 28 degrees)– I could even say it was pleasantly warm in the sunlight, and the brisk air was quite refreshing. 

Alas, no, my coat is not vintage. I’d actually been wanting a camel colored fur collar wrap coat for years and was so happy to nab this one for less than $150 on Missselfridge.com, a little over a year ago. It’s really well made and yup it has faux fur which is clearly how they kept the price down. Upon browsing for similar styles for you guys (given coats are not really in season) the only ones I found had real fur and a price tag of almost a $1000. 

Hopefully you guys like the modern touch of ankle zippers and sheer PVC paneling on the heels. Actually my heels really remind me of these Manolo Blahniks!

Have a great Tuesday all!

    It was so great seeing you in person and I'm so happy you got to explore NYC considering you were just here for just a bit! I love the faux fur, camel, and red/plaid combo.A northeastern secret for keeping warm, while staying stylish (aka avoiding puffy ski clothing items…) is to stuff these shake-able hand warmers in your pockets. (Chemical reaction causes the powder inside to get up to 100+ degrees!)That way you might not need to purchase a hot tea or what to keep you warm, since that goes cold fast. There is a brand called "hot hands" that I used when I was a camping girl scout and I've added an Amazon link below.Rumi Neely, a blogger over at Fashion Toast, also happens to use them, and I've never seen her wear gloves, even in DEEP snow for NYFW. http://www.amazon.com/Little-Hotties-Hand-Warmer-Pack/dp/B000JJP0UM

    Not really a fan of the plaid trend but I love the way you styled the plaid top.The camel coat and heels add a nice touch.

    I love this, dear Jess!! Very "edgy Audrey Hepburn!!" The coat is gorgeous…and as an animal lover, I am happy to hear that the collar is faux-fur!! I bet it was fun to shoot such a different – east coast weather appropriate – look!!www.StyleIsMyPudding.com
