BLACK COAT


New coat debut about two weeks ago when the bf and I went out to see 'fantastic beasts'. If you haven't seen this movie yet, you should definitely get tickets right away! Of course it's not like Harry Potter, although there are a lot of references, but it's funnier, the people dress amazing (I love the twenties) and of course Eddie Redmayne is probably the coolest guy ever since his amazing performances in 'The Theory of Everything' and 'The Danish Girl' ;-)

Fun Fact about the new coat: The only materials I ended up paying for were the thread and the name tags. Luckily, I got the fabric for free from Marina Hoermanseder while interning there and I had some lining left from previous coats I made. I finally had time to make a long black coat with a pointed lapel and classic patch pockets since I've always dreamed about it! It's my favorite coat right now, and even though my machine won't let me make button holes since the cloth is too thick, I have been wearing it non-stop since I like my coats and jackets to be loose. Who needs a proper fastening anyway?

STATEMENT EARRINGS AND BELL SLEEVES


I must admit today's post is more trend oriented than usual. Whenever a new trend arises--which basically means on Instagram-- I remain pretty skeptical. However this season's big love for bell-sleeves has me jumping on the bandwagon, although I have always had an affinity for strong shoulders, puffed sleeves and ruffles as they add some éclat to a simple look. So I got my hands on this cosy grey jumper from Zara, but I still have my eye on a slimmer version where the sleeves are a total eye-catcher.

I wanted to create a sporty yet elegant look which is why I paired sneakers, a little black clutch and these statement earrings from H&M Studio. Maybe I should have marked this post differently, since it is the first time in my blogging career that I am wearing jewelry. I have this odd aversion to jewelry, especially if it's delicate and almost non existent, however I can totally understand why people enjoy statement pieces. I never thought I'd wear it but oh well, there's a first time for everything and I'll admit-- I didn't even feel super uncomfortable.
What do you think about today's look? Let me know in the comments and maybe I'll dare to wear more jewelry .. NOT 😉
