    Wow!!!! That first coat. Love the contrast coat. What a find.

    I’m all for trying new fashions, but as a young poorly paid staffer in DC, I’m upset that you put this – this doesn’t seem like a wardrobe essential. Most of your pieces are versatile and classic. I’m disappointed.

      …So don’t buy it? I didn’t realize Belle was ONLY allowed to post “classic, versatile” pieces on a fashion blog. Because it’s so terrible to indulge in trends.

      Man does not live by bread alone. When you get the essentials and the basics, it’s fun to add something different. I love the coat in the middle, I think it’s different and modern.

        Thank you for your non-snarky response, Belle. I guess I will just continue dreaming until the day I can buy non-essential pieces!

I’ve been wearing the same one for years (it’s the best). But they don’t make it anymore. So here are some options for replacement.

Three Outfits I’ll Wear All Spring

When I started this blog, influencers still re-wore clothes. There were no haul videos filled with the latest from Shein before it winds up in a beach in Ghana poisoning the planet. There were no sponsored campaigns delivering fresh wardrobes each month. The content machine doesn’t like reruns.

The Find: Like a McCall’s Pattern
