Life of Excess

This black fur coat is something of a mystery. I asked my beau to buy it for me last Valentine's Day. It looked amazing in the photographs. The vintage seller told me she had discovered a receipt still in the pocket from the 1970's. I bet this coat has been places. This coat has probably partied pretty hard.

When I pulled it out of the box, I was somewhat disappointed. It reminded me a little of a gorilla costume, but it photographs amazingly. It probably needs a good brushing and some TLC. Who knows? Maybe this baby was meant to be worn in dark clubs and during 3 a.m. strolls. I'll get working on that.

Shopbop Giveaway - Shopbop Blog 'n More!



Wee! It's been a while since I hosted a giveaway, and I'm pretty stoked to be working with Shopbop. They're giving away a $100 gift code!

Did you know that Shopbop is located in Wisconsin? Just a reminder that I am too, so it's pretty amazing there's such a fashion giant so close to me.

I seriously cannot gush about Shopbop enough. Their shipping is incredibly fast and free. So those midnight shopping sprees are well justified, right? And if you ever freak out and need to return something... yup, you guessed it, free returns. Holy fashion.

Now I know everyone is expecting me to write about Alexander Wang or T by Alexander Wang, but Shopbop carries a ton of brands, so I can't just center on my Wang obsession.

Shopbop has Chaser rock tees. Oh, how I love thee, Chaser. I accidentally got addicted to Chaser tees since they're crazy soft and have that vintage tour shirt feel to 'em. Okay, well, I claim "accidentally" - but I'm sure everyone knows better than that.

Since it's getting cold out, I can't get away with just wearing a t-shirt, but luckily, Shopbop has a crazy amount of killer coats.

Here are some of my favs:

Casually cool. Seriously, that collar is insane.

Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent coats


You had me at tailcoat.

Rag & Bone coats

Pretty much the classiest coat ever.

Halston Heritage jackets


One of my other favorite things about Shopbop is the Shopbop Blog. Beauty tips, styling ideas and heck, even a music playlist from the Shopbop studio is featured.


Okay, so let's get to the giveaway! Enter to win a $100 Shopbop gift code! A winner will be chosen at random.

Petals and Peacocks

"Oh god, that is so you."

That phrase is music to any fashion freak's ears. This is exactly what happened when I opened my package from Petals and Peacocks. Amazingly soft graphic tees with just the right amount of rock 'n roll flavor. Did I mention there's the perfect addition of destroyed detail? I swoon! I freaking swoon.

I'm such a sucker for cheeky graphic tees, and Petals and Peacocks has this down to an art. Plus, the material is that awesome balance of soft-as-vintage and I stole this from my boyfriend's closet, silly me.

Here's a closeup of the destroyed detail. It's on the collar, sleeves and hem.
