Last year I was obsessed with military style coats and purchased this navy blue Laundry by Shelli Segal coat. Sadly, I had only worn it a few times – it’s a bit heavy and requires colder weather. Part of me was thinking about selling it on ebay since I hadn’t shown much interest in wearing it. However, my mind quickly changed once I put it on this morning – I had forgotten how stunning it is.
It is fully lined, single breasted, with a shirt collar, flapped patch pockets, and skirted hem. A gorgeous and well made coat.
It is no surprise that I love boots – I do after all have half a closet dedicated to many different lengths, heels and colors. As the the cold weather approaches, the sandals get tucked back into their original boxes (stacked nicely in the back of the closet) and the boots become center stage. As a practical woman that spends most her time on foot rather than in a car, the majority of the boots I own are flat or have a 1.5 to 2 inch heel or wedge.
Currently my favorite pair of boots are a gray, over the knee, flat boot by Dolce Vita called Eve. I recently purchased these as a birthday gift to myself and found quite the deal. They were less expensive than most of my Steve Madden boots (Steve Madden is known for reasonably priced, quality boots). I have always been a fan of Dolce Vita’s shoe collection and own several of their sandals and flats. The Eve’s are the first pair of Dolce Vita boots I’ve purchased. Thankfully, my shoe size is universal in their entire collection – these fit perfectly.
Since I’ve only had these a short time, I have yet to pair them with a dress or skirt. I’ve worn them a few times now, always with a pair of skinny jeans and really like the way they elongate my legs.
