Winter White

Katayone Adeli Pants, Banana Republic blouse, Rag & Bone wedges, Vintage faux fur coat (borrowed from mom), Vintage clutch, JCrew belt, Shari Wacks earrings



Dynasty pose

Who says you can't wear white after Labor Day?  I broke all the rules over the weekend and participated in Carrie's White Denim in Winter Challenge (although I swapped out the white denim for these white pants).  It gave me the perfect opportunity to wear the faux fur vintage coat I borrowed from my mom a few months ago.  I have to admit, the fur coat made me feel glamorous and silly all at the same time.  Gabe had a good laugh and said it looked like an animal had attacked me.  I guess we're all entitled to an opinion, but this jacket made me feel like Linda Evans on an episode of Dynasty and that makes me happy.

Check out the other girls wearing white for the challenge:
Anna Jane-See Jane
Rosa-True Crew Love
Jayme-Jammer at 10am

Another girl rocking the white denim. I love how you paired it with the bright pink top to make it a winter appropriate but spring reminiscent look!

Work it out! I actually really love white in winter. That old rule is over as far as I'm concerned.

Haha! I can totally picture Gabe saying that! I love this glamourous look! You'd look amazing no matter what you had on. :) Have a good day!

Josie said...

Hottttttieeeeee. Valerie, you look amazing! I realized when Carrie posed this challenge that I own virtually no white (I'm just so pale all the time) and I'm so incredibly jealous of your stunning white pants. Super cute, especially with that punchy pink top. And I adore the coat -- I say, if it make you happy, wear it for sure!

How cute are you! Fur is a perfect addition to this challenge! Kudos to Carrie for getting us all together... You now have a new blog friend/follower!

the nyanzi report said...

Now that white and pink surely is a chic combination and you certainly would fit in nicely in an episode of Dynasty.

Jess said...

Oh my! That faux fur coat is fabulous!!

TheChambrayCountess said...

Cute outfit! And I love when the men in our lives offer up their less-than-complimentary opinions on fashion, it's always pretty funny, even when I try to act offended ;)

LyddieGal said...

I adore the punchy pink - so spring, and the fur is fabulous.

Chic on the Cheap

YEP! You are channeling Linda Evans in the most amazingly glamorous way possible.
I'm kind of bumming I missed that challenge. That's a "rule" I'd totally be willing to break!

Leaving the House in THIS?!?!

Looks great, especially when paired with that pink top. I completely agree, I break the white after labor day rule all the time.
