Somehow The Lion-Hearted Failed To Win

Mackage "Doreen" Coat, American Apparel 3D Mesh Jumper, Nixon "Time Teller" Watch, Urban Planet Jeans, Frye Engineer 12R Boots.

Just realized that I never got to share my baby with you guys. My parents bought me this Mackage coat for my 21st birthday and there are not enough words in the English language (or at least, enough that I know) to express my love of this coat. It's heavy, beautiful and dramatic - not mention that when I'm wearing it, I feel like a Russian princess. It's so ~fancy~ that I accidentally call it a dress half the time instead of a coat.

Anyways, that's the end of my ode to this wool coat. I have to say however that it's really emphasized to me the importance of great outerwear, and how amazing having a beautiful coat can make you look and feel on a regular basis. I therefore deem 2012 the year of outerwear investments (on the to buy list: leather jacket, down filled parka, rain jacket, trench.)

We'll see how that goes. Y'all will be the first to know!

The Style Spy

Sorry, but just have to get this out: aghdksbkdbfbgsbk!!! 
/end keyboard smash. 

So this was my exciting news - I am officially a contributor over at The Style Spy! I'm kind of freaking out right now, but in the best way possible. I've been reading The Style Spy long before I even started a blog of my own and to see my name up on the site next to that banner is absolutely unreal.

For those who don't know about the website, The Style Spy is a fashion and beauty new website focused on informing its readers about everyday, affordable fashion in Canada. I am incredibly enthusiastic about homegrown fashion and promoting Canadian brands so joining a website that values this is a real plus for me. I'll be contributing bi-weekly posts to the site; you can read my first article for The Style Spy here.

Incredibly excited about this opportunity and what the rest of 2012 will bring. Thanks once again to the Style Spy team!
