What I Wore-Who Knew!?

Friends, have you ever saw a trend that you thought, “oh! that looks amazing but I could never wear that”? Well, I have! And I have pretty recently.

I clearly recall reading the Fall 2011 trend report titled “Your Coat Will Skim the Ground” in New York Magazine and sighed. I love how dramatic the look is but I thought I would never like a long coat on a 5 foot me.

Well, well, well! Who knew this 5 foot girl would fall in LOVE a extra long coat?!?!

I completely thought a long coat would engulf me but I actually really really love the way it looks and it is a completely different kind of coat for me, so YAY for something new.

I usually wear a knee skimming length or higher and never thought I could wear a coat with a longer length because I’m so petite. Silly, silly me!

When I wear it I completely feel like a secret agent/Audrey Hepburn.
