Coats can sometimes make you feel bulky, especially if you’re bustier on top with all that extra fabric, but this one somehow isn’t like that. It cinches with a belt (no buttons) and accentuates the smallest part of the waist for an exaggerated feminine shape.
I wore this coat on the plane and throughout our trip to Oregon/Washington last weekend. The very reasonable price tag ($79) makes it an even more awesome find!
I paired the check print coat with grey distressed skinny jeans and my new OTK suede boots, which I’ve been wearing to death (proof on Instagram and Snapchat). I seriously look for any excuse to wear these boots. Steve Madden also makes a $150 dupe here if you’re not into the price tag of the originals. I can only speak for the originals, though, and they are so comfy and so easy to make any outfit look instantly chic. And a girl like me with more muscular legs can totally fit into them (there are no zippers on the side or back — they just go up your leg like hosiery). I sold a bunch of stuff on craigslist and saved up some of my paychecks to get them — no regrets!
You may have noticed my obsession with false lashes on my blog and social media, and the ones I’ve been wearing here and a whole lot of other times are surprisingly a drugstore brand, available here and here. They are incredible, especially for the price, and I can’t recommend them enough!
Also, in case you haven’t been briefed on my Instagram, Snapchat, in person, etc., haha… These glamorous aviator-style Prada sunglasses that you’ve seen me wearing a lot lately are my second rented pair from DITTO, which is a site that offers a pretty cool program called Endless Eyewear. You can swap out gorgeous sunglasses from Prada, Miu Miu, Karen Walker, and other fab designers for $24/month (yes, it went up a little), like Netflix and Rocksbox for your face. Your first month is free with code ‘bondgirlglam,’ if you’d like to give it a try. I picked out sunglasses for Mr. Bond and myself using the Virtual Try-On feature, and we both ended up really loving how our sunnies fit when they arrived. Renting is also an awesome option if you want to see if a trendy style will look and feel good on you before you actually purchase them.
Have you seen my Shop sections above? I regularly update my Women’s, Men’s, Baby, Maternity, & Home sections with items I either currently use or would love to try and think my Bond Girls would enjoy as well!
