I am shameless. When I love something, I tend to abuse it.

That new favorite song of mine? Blasting on repeat all day.
That new favorite dish of mine? Eating it 3 meals a day, every day.
That new necklace I got? Wearing it with every outfit, even if it clashes.

That about sums up what's happening with this trench coat. Don't be surprised to see it in every post for this month...I'm shameless. Or have I found a new reason to shop? Diversify that coat closet..yes..

I can't wait for Thanksgiving (& all the sales it brings)! It's a fun time for me to relax, reconnect with old friends, and bake something for the annual dinner with family friends. I usually do a Japanese inspired pineapple cheesecake. It's light in flavor and sweetness, and tastes like pineapple cake/鳳梨酥!

What do you look forward to the most this Thanksgiving holiday? :)

  2. 39 bucks for that awesome trench? WOW. You saved like 160 dollars for it and it is such a classy, modern piece which once again you styled to perfection. In love with the awesome boot-leg pants and cognac bag. And you are after crazy deals like myself. Love that about you.

    I wanted to say I was just online when your super sweet comment arrived and I had to comment back right away Yvonne, because your comment made my day. Right back at you, because every single outfit you wear is super chic. Thanks so much, once again.

    Happy Monday My Friend!

    P.S. Do we already follow one-another via Bloglovin and GFC? We must! =))

  9. I want to give you a round of applause for scoring that clutch at a thrift shop- it's BEAUTIFUL! I'd love a piece like that. And ahh, I'm excited for the thanksgiving sales to start too haha. Mostly because I have to invest in a new heavy duty winter coat and I'd love to get it at half off ;)

    1. Thank you! I used to go thrifting everyday after or between classes so I was able to score a lot of good finds that way. I'd love for boots! But they're so hard to find at a good price! :(
