The day of love is right around the corner, so it only made sense to style this cathedral sleeve coat – which I am completely and utterly over the moon in LOVEΒ β™₯ with! I mean…those sleeves! I just couldn’t get over the drama of it. What a statement piece, right? That’s what I’ve always loved about fashion. The glamour. The over-the-top aspect of it at times. The piece that dares you, and encourages you to make it into your life. The one thing in your closet that when you put it on you just think β€œWow…so good”.
That’s what’s so great about fashion. You get to playΒ dress-up & liveΒ in a fashionable fantasy every time you step into your closet. How lucky are us girls?!Β
