Outfit | Puffa Jacket

Jacket: Hunter
Crop Jumper: H&M
T-shirt: Urban Outfitters
Trousers: American Apparel Riding Pants
Shoes: Nike
Bag: Vintage
Glasses: Ray-Ban
Necklace: Argos
Watch: Calvin Klein

I am utterly in love with this jacket. Its ugly, big, puffy, filled with down feathers and is the warmest thing in the world.
I picked it up at Nordstrom Rack pretty heavily discounted. Its from the mens section and is by the brand Hunter. I had no idea they even made clothes. I have had some Hunter wellies for years and thought that was all they did. Apparently not!

I wouldn't say it is remotely stylish but its like wearing a hug its so warm and cozy. Its a size large, they had smaller ones but I wanted to be able to get loads of layers on underneath it. I think I will definitely plenty of wear out of itduring the freezing New York Winter.

Dupe | Zara Double Breasted Coat

You may remember a little while back I posted this wish list all about the Zara double breasted coat. I tried it on several times, I ummed and ahhed over it for ages. Then I left for New York and abandoned the idea.

This was until SheInside where kind enough to let me pick a few things from their website. While browsing the site I saw this coat I knew straight away I had to have it. I looked just like the Zara one I had been lusting after for months.

It arrived a couple of weeks ago and I love it. I don't own the Zara version so I can't compare the material it is made from but in terms of the look it is exactly the same. 
The best bit? Its half the price of the Zara version.
The Zara coat is $119 but the coat from SheInside is only $50.49. And it is available in both black and white. So if you want to get really technical you could get both colours for the price it would have cost you for one.
And from checking the Zara site it appears that they only have the white version left now anyway.

I can promise you this is not a sponsored post or anything like that. SheInside kindly sent me the coat  but I am under no obligation to write this.

I did a dupes post and video on my Aldo Wanette sandals a while ago and I received so many comments from people loving the less expensive alternatives that I wanted to share this as well.
I am not affiliated with SheInside either. 
I just want you guys to know the whole story and be fully informed.

Wishlist | Boots

1, 2, 3, 4

As soon as there is even a slight chill in the air I return to my first love of the footwear world. Boots. 
I live in them all winter and I am currently lusting after so many different pairs. 

The only stipulations being that they have to be black (obviously) and they have to be flat or have a heel that is low enough to be comfortable for constant all day wear. 
I don't do heels, of any kind. I am more than clumsy and uncoordinated enough in flats so adding any extra challenges in that department is really not a good idea. Also I really really hate having sore feet. 
I always put comfort first, its the old granny in me. Doesn't mean you still cant wear nice shoes!

Photo Diary | Bushwick Street Art

I went vintage shopping in Bushwick with my friend a few weeks ago. I had intended to take pictures for a post on the shopping (I still plan to at some point) but I got more than a little sidetracked by all of the street art and graffiti covered walls. These where all taken in a pretty small area so next time I go plan to explore more and see what other gems I can capture!

Photo Diary | Halloween Dog Parade

Belive it or not I have actually edited this down and removed pictures. It was inevitably going to be a seriously massive and picture heavy post.
You can never have too many pictures of cute dogs in costumes right?!
