My Favorite Winter Coat

December 26, 2013

How was your Christmas? I hope you had a great one! If you're anything like me, you ate enough to throw on that old baby doll dress from the depths of closet-land. It’s about to be a new year and I reserve the right to eat my body weight in carbs until the stroke of January 1st. #SorryImNotSorry! Today I'm speaking about my mantra and exciting new challenges for 2014-- you best read on, honey.

J Crew Coat // Madewell top (similar here, here, and here) // Urban Outfitters booties // Black Orchid coated jeans // Celine sunglasses // Balenciaga bag //

I am so excited about this J.Crew coat I recently purchased. You’ve probably noticed that I’ve worn the (cough, cough) you-know-what out of it already. Let's get two things clear before I go any further. Here at Devon Rachel, I stand behind two principles in fashion: 1) you don't have to be 3.5 pounds to rock killer styles and 2) you don't have to drain your bank account to look like a million bucks. The ability to take a fabulous (possibly designer) piece and mix it with a $15 shirt from Forever 21 is what I call good styling. Receive this: anyone can take a $400 dress, $500 shoes and a $2,000 bag and look great. What makes a good fashionista is the act of working with what 'chu got and honing in on your inner confidence (ahem, #getitgirl). I challenge you to think about that! Who cares if you can’t afford that Celine bag or Valentino rock stud pumps? Take what you got and WORK IT, GIRL (#GetItGirl)! I’m going to be on my soapbox about this subject in 2014—so get ready.

On a totally different topic… what are you wearing for NYE? Let’s be real here: no matter what you’re doing it’s an important topic!
