There's so much drama in this fancy vintage coat. This whole outfit is rather obviously inspired by Mad Men, because I've been obsessing over these related blog posts for the last two weeks. In fact, the hardest thing to decide when accessorizing it was choosing between a Joan-like updo and brooch or tying the scarf that's on my bag around my neck like Betty Draper. I can't remember where I got the coat, but it's a very heavy, supple fabric and yet it's light enough to wear on a nice day.
The single button at the navel means that a gale of wind flings the coat back wildly, in a very melodramatic way, which I do love.
Even though I'm sometimes tempted to let this dress go, it's one of M's favorites and I can't quite bear to do it. I had a meeting to go to, so I wore sheer black pantyhose with this, which I don't normally do. I can't remember where this necklace came from, but I think I like it better paired with white and denim, over black.

This is what's on our weekend agenda (happy hour starts...now):
- Seeing one of my favorite bands, Stars (listen to the new album here if you want to)
- Dancing the night away at Flourish, an ultra-chic lesbian dance party
- An after-hours private spa party with fancy nibbles and champagne for some of my closest gal pals at a local Lush
