Brick Road

OUTFIT: Coat was my great grandmothers, it's a London Fog vintage wool. Love it sooo much. The shirt was a strange tunic type top (thrifted of course, for a few dollars), but I loved the colors and the neat collar so I had to have it. It is "Robbie Bee" brand. It was this strange length though--kind of "mumu-ish". So I hemmed it to be a shorter dress/shirt to wear with leggings or jeans, and I like it much better this way! Boots are Walmart...they have been circling around a few other entries (God, I'm cheap!) and jeans are Lee. I actually bought these at Dots for $10. The belt and the purse were both new purchases (Merona for Target) totaling about $25. The red/orange handwarmers were another Target find--clearanced for $2 at the end of the season last year! I love the brick color. Honestly, they were part of the main inspiration for this outfit!
Bracelet was a clearance "Falls Creek" item at Walmart for $3. Earrings were a thrifted for one dollar.

Makeup was fun today; I did a smoky eye with a goldish brick color, a dark brown, and a frosted sage. Lips were neutral.

Hey! I curl my hair by wrapping it around the barrel. If you like that look--wavy, not traditional curling iron curls--here's a great tutorial for you! Let me add that this year I FINALLY got a professional curling iron (thrifted ofcourse) and it changed my life. If you curl your hair often, get a super hot iron (pro or ceramic) because they rock.
