H&M coat and scarf. Target socks. Vera Wang wedges.

James hooked me up with these amazing Vera Wang from Intermix that hoists me up a monstrous six inches off the ground. Probably the most highest and comfortable platforms I own, but the rather white leather/suede has me uneasy wearing these around. They come in black too, which I think is a sweet alternative to the D&G wedges people go gaga over.

I was so stoked when I found this coat highly discounted at H&M to the point of obscurity but then realized after going through all the pictures that it would look way better if I got the sleeves taken in. Jesus H&M, you were so close to perfecting this coat: cinches perfectly at the waist, exposed zippers, and a cute flair.

And I probably changed outfits like three times a day but wore this jacket and a big black faux fur one (also from H&M) with all of them. So before I changed again, I wore this hours prior to the Chictopia 10 conference to get brunch with Taghrid and Jason from Citizen Couture. Can't say it was the brightest idea to walk around sans tights - not only was I getting crazed looks from people, but my legs were bitterly numb. Lesson learned: take the iPhone weather app seriously.

Can't stop listening to this song. It's so soothing and this band is amazing!

  40. Love love love you outfit =) especially the shoes I've been eyeing them too. I hope I get a hold of a pair I love the black ones and the cream is brilliant too

  41. Ugh killer wedges.. must be by Ms. Wang. xx

  42. i swear i just died a little...i have been on an AGONIZING hunt for those wedges..I am absolutely obsessed but Intermix is sold out and they are the only ones that carry that color. Apparently there were manufacturing problems with that color so no other stores got them yet (I've done my homework...) but they are going to have another wave come out mid march so I have made friends with various shoe sales people who are going to call me the second they get in...

    do they fit true to size? comfortable?

  43. Those heels plus the exaggerated flare of the coat are a brilliant combo! I love it.

    Maeko ~ thereafterish.

  44. Those shoes are immense, I want. Great song too :)

    You problably would like a band called Fleet foxes, it's sounds quite similar to the Boy and bear song! I know my english isn't the best, Im from Sweden! :)

  56. Adoreee the wedges and coat! I love the whole outfit =)

  57. Love your blog!! I check it daily and am always impressed.

    I'm a new blogger, so thanks for being an inspiration :)


  58. Sweet style. Curious: Do you graduate soon? If so, do share your future plans. Is fashion going to be apart of your career, or going to remain a hobby? I don't remember if you ever mentioned your major... er, actually, I am only assuming yu're in school because I heard you mention something about classes in one of your vlogs.

    Anyway, as a graduating senior (2010, chyea!) who's kind of shitting the bed, it'd be nice to commiserate/gather inspiration.

  59. Nothing beats a good 6 inches! I can just tell how cold it is.

  60. So cute! You pull off the socks and heels look very well.

  61. The wedges are super cute, and you look the scarf!

  62. Sandals and socks are so gorgeous!
    I really like your style!


  63. cute outfit! but I have to say I am a fan of sheer tights with wedges :)

  64. Great shoes! Love them!

    Check out my blog. :-)

  65. KIller shoes chica!!! Fabulous 6 inches off the ground indeed!.... Love the beige+black and that sudden pop of yellow! But yeah girl.... it IS crazy to NOT cover them legs (as pretty as they are) in nyc with this crazy cold weather going on!


  66. i'm in love with the wedges and the pop of color brought by the scarf! :)

  67. Killer heels!

  70. those wedges are so lovable babe!!

  71. oh my god those wedges are delish!!!

  72. Took me time to read all the comments, but I really love the article. It proved to be very helpful to me and I am sure to all the commenters here! It’s always nice when you can not only be informed, but also engaged! I’m sure you had joy writing this article.

  73. "Those of us who have worked for any period of time on educational technology projects, or on international development projects (let alone in the space where these two areas meet!), will have come across at least one project that 'failed'" As I'm about to QA the final report on exactly this type of project, thanks for an amazingly timely post!
    The one thought I'd offer, is that it's rare in my experience, that projects of this type ever have in place anything but the crudest metrics aimed at measuring success. The one thing your piece made me determined to do was design better ones in future.
