Studs & Shearling

Hi friends! Can you believe it's March already? It's already been a few weeks since I started doing Visual Merchandising, and I'm loving it. I really enjoy playing with different colors and finding details that complement one another so working with FENDI merchandise is like a dream come true. Although I haven't lost sight of my ultimate career goal, I'm actively maintaining a happy disposition despite any challenges and detours along the way. My boyfriend and I applied the same mentality  on a smaller scale  to this photo shoot. When sunshine was replaced by fog and drizzle, we whipped out my umbrella and kept smiling:






Coat: Joie
Skirt: Zara
Leggings: DKNY (Available here)
Shoes: Nine West

The coat I'm wearing, which was a gift from my godmother eight years ago, remains one of my favorite winter pieces. I love the warm, fur interior as well as the softness and golden sheen of the shearling. To emphasize the black, gold and fur motif, I chose a studded skirt from Zara and pony hair booties from Nine West. 

What do you think about my outfit? Do you have any staples in your closet? Thanks for reading and see you next week!

  9. You look gorgeous Jess! I love the leather jacket that your godmother gave you and wonder how it fit when you were younger. :)

    My staples include a favorite statement necklace, classic pumps, and a pretty coat that will stand the test of time.

  16. Ohh, I love how you turned a gloomy weather around for a cool outfit post!
    I like the stud details on the skirt, I've been wanting a leather skirt all Winter long but too bad now that the weather is warming up in the Bay Area I won't be really sporting it much even if I had it :(

    By the way, that's your ultimate career goal?

  65. Best things are always old, and we always need some so called old fashion things nowadays! So I just collect some classic sheepskin coats for men, inspired by some tradition rancher sheepskin shearling coat classic design style in www.cwmalls.com, quality fabric of course (thick shearling sheepskin with soft yet durable exterior)!
