{in my closet : tartan hooded paddington}



. . . had been planning to debut this fun new feature earlier in the week, but it’s the holidays and things are already a beautiful whirlwind of festivities, and so, today, wonderfully excited to announce a brand new series: in my closet, a glimpse of some of the things that am currently wearing & adore, beginning with this ultra-stylish and perfectly preppy tartan hooded coat . . .




. . . always a certain fondness for all things classic & a little preppy, and especially for tartan, and while have always adored lauren moffat‘s vintage-chic style, absolutely adore the fall 2010 collection, with its cashmere cardigans and silk charmeuse tops, but especially the tartan pieces, and most of all, this tartan coat, perfect with jeans and tall leather boots {and opera gloves if it’s chilly}
for traipsing about on early december afternoons, or belted and paired with socks and heels for an evening at a new gallery exhibition, or lattes for two beneath the chandeliers of a quaint café . . .

45 Notes
  • so the anthro jacket by Madchen is the same as the Lauren Moffatt one! Anthro still carries the jacket if you are looking at it.

    I recently saw that the swiss miss sweater from Lauren Moffatt was sold on anthro’s site under Lauren Moffatt brand, but at a brick and mortar shop the same sweater had the Madchen tag…

    I can only assume Madchen and Lauren Moffatt are one and the same?

  • this is wonderfully exciting! your blog is so beautiful already – i am thrilled over the new series! it is off to a great start! and those boots – love!

  • where are the boots from? i love them just as much as i love the jacket!

  • Love this!!!

    Hey Miss R, Im guessing twin shots in one of your posts if you and your sister have the same coloured hair:-) Looking forward to the next in my closet post:-)!!

    And great editing Miss R:-)

  • What a lovely surprise, Roséline :)

    Your new series will be such a fabulous addition to the variety of inspiration that you share. I love this new coat of yours, with the leather belt-like details on the sleeve—so different from all of the camel and military green options that I have been seeing lately. Did you share a little peek of a close-up, detail shot on facebook before? I wonder if it’s the same piece that I remember… love it. Quite the classic statement piece!

    I hope you are having a wonderful week so far, and fun wrapping up parcels* xoxo

  • It’s wonderful to actually “see” you, however slight. ;)

    You look gorgeous and I love the idea of peeking in your closet!

    More please!

  • fxox said...

    Ah sorry, just realised, its your sister?? Shes beautiful:-)

  • fxox said...

    Oh, I Love It!!!!! This is a great feature!! Love your new red hair from the visit to the hairdressers recently and of course I am not surprised that its a tartan and trench coat as your first post on “what I wear”.

    Hmmm, Let me guess, sequins for the next one??!!

    (this is only because unfortunately one cannot wear chandeliers, chevron floors, stacked fire wood and marble:-)!:-)

    HUGS and a big smile on my face!! FXOXO
