Vanessa Bruno coat from Forwardbyrevolve

I saw this Vanessa Bruno coat a few months ago, and haven't been able to forget about it. I'm usually not into crochet details, but these are so subtle and beautifully made. It's very expensive, even on sale, but the quality is probably good. This would be a perfect Christmas present, but the only way that'll happen is if I get it myself. I'd style it with things I already have/or similair. The Balenciaga Chelsea boots are on my wish list as well.

Winter dress

Winter here hasn't been harsh, but it's slowly getting colder. No snow yet, so I've been able to wear my Marant boots. Today was colder than usual, so I decided to wear my Margiela shearling boots, they've been in their box since March. I was extatic to be able to put them away, but I knew that I'd feel good about them again. They're one of my best buys ever. I hardly ever wear dresses, I own one A.P.C summer dress, and this A.P.C wool dress. It's one of those classic A.P.C pieces that I'm happy to put on every year. However, after reading this post by Lin I'm feeling really torn about A.P.C. I had no idea that Jean Touitou is such a douche! I guess this isn't the first time designers that I like come across as completely ignorant. I remember a quote by Ms Marant in Elle UK when she was compared to Vanessa Bruno: "She designs for blondes, I do brunettes". I don't think Touitou's opinions will keep me from buying A.P.C, but they definitely make me feel less enthusiastic about the clothes.
