Fashion Friday: J. Crew Wool Topcoat

The weather is getting cooler, so it’s definitely time to think about winter coats. I tend to gravitate towards moto jackets, so I wanted to try to branch out for this post and find a different style of coat. While browsing Nordstrom’s website, I found this gem: the J. Crew Olga Boiled Wool Topcoat in red which retails for $270.

Before we get into the review, I do have two random thoughts:

  1. When did Nordstrom start selling J. Crew things?
  2. Whose idea was it to call this gorgeous coat the “Olga Boiled Wool Topcoat” which sounds terrible?

Anyway, on to the real review!

First, the color is beautiful! This vibrant red is sure to make you stand out! Also, I think the black buttons are a great addition since they contrast nicely with the red. The overall cut and length of the coat seem very fashion forward, and it’s sure to keep you really warm! My only fear is that petite gals like myself might find the length a bit unflattering. Finally, those pockets are deep enough to carry so many secrets and all your extra stuff!

Would you wear a coat this length or do you prefer a different style? Be sure to let me know in the comment section!

Fashion Friday: BLANKNYC Meant to Be Moto Jacket with Removable Hood

It looks like Moto jackets are still going to be popular this autumn and winter, which is great since I still have a gorgeous one from Banana Republic. However, while I was looking at Nordstrom, I realized that it might be nice to get one in a fun color that isn’t black, white, or grey. That’s when I spotted the BLANKNYC Meant to Be Moto Jacket with Removable Hood which retails for $98 and comes in this stunning shade of green.

First off, I’m glad the hood is removable because I would definitely want to remove it. The hood looks a bit bulky and makes the jacket look more casual than classy. Either way, I love the edginess that a moto jacket lends to a look (even though it’s subtle). With this green shade, you’d be sure to stand out. Honestly, though, this is a great twist on a neutral. It would still go with pretty much everything since it’s a darker green.

Do you have a favorite moto jacket or is this not the trend for you? Be sure to let me know in the comment section!

New Banana Republic Jacket

The love of my life is constantly pestering me about two things: drinking more water and wearing a jacket when it’s cold. I’ve been resisting them both, but he is, regrettably, correct. The other day we were at Kenwood Towne Centre because he wanted to go to Banana Republic, and I found this gem:

Behold! The Banana Republic Flounce Front Moto Jacket! This picture from Banana Republic’s website doesn’t even do it justice. The front ruffles are adorable, and it also looks really sparkly in person. This girlish charm, however, is tamed by the moto structure and the silver zipper hardware. It’s so flattering in the waist region, and I’m really happy that I bought it. It does retail for $158, but thankfully I went during the 50% off sale! That is one of the reasons I love Banana Republic – they have pretty amazing sales, so make sure to wait if you ever see something regular priced that you want. The risk will (probably) pay off!
