hippiechic & shearling

I've been wearing my new-to-me shearling coat (a lot) and realized that is actually such an statement piece. The moment I put on it I feel like saying 'Mr. DeMille, I'm ready for my close-up'* . It's not that I don't like a classy piece which makes me feel like Madame la Marquise. Actually I do love it, but in my opinion it's asking for some colourfulness and my own ironic twist. I think that (almost) any posh and elegant second-hand piece could find its way into a modern wardrobe. Obviously, it's easier if you're doing a vintage style with lots of attitude, but it's not necessary!. Any style can incorporate a classy second-hand piece as I'm concerned!
Linking Visible Monday and wishing you a visible week!

* one of my favorite quotes from Sunset Boulevard

Me estoy poniendo un montón mi abrigo de piel vuelta (de segunda mano) y me he dado cuenta de que es una prenda de mucha importancia. En cuanto me la pongo, dan ganas de decir 'estoy lista para mi escena, Señor DeMille' (ya sabéis, como en Sunset Boulevard). No es que no me guste un abrigo elegante que me haga sentir como una marquesona. En realidad, me encanta. Pero me parece que está pidiendo a gritos colorido y un toque de ironía. Creo que (casi) cualquier prenda elegante y sofisticada de segunda mano puede incorporarse a un armario moderno. Evidentemente, será más fácil si tu estilo ya es vintage totalmente, pero no hace falta. En mi opinión, en cualquier estilo cabe una pieza clásica de segunda mano!
Y es hora de enlazar al Visible Monday y desearos una semana muy visible!

  1. So true what you say about vintage pieces and your look is the best proof! In fact I think that vintage pieces are such a perfect add to each wardrobe. Today I'm again in love with your look because it is so colourful. Happy Tuesday!

  2. I agree 110%! Vintage goes with everything! I wish more people realized this. The neutral coat is a great canvas for all the colour waiting beneath.


  3. If anyone can add humour, colour and style to a classic coat then it's you! That coat must be an absolute dream to wear, it looks so luxurious and cosy. xxx

  4. I love your stylings so much.
    Normaly I am used to dark winter looks but you combined a cozy and comfy look and yet it's so bright and eyecatchy. Lovely.
    And I agree, vintage goes with everything.

  5. I think that wearing a statement piece like that magnificent coat is always a good thing! I like how it pops off your bright clothes - that really shows it off.

    Have a wonderful week, my dear!

  6. Yes, I agree that a good vintage piece blends well with a modern wardrobe. You are certainly proving this with your magnificent coat. No chance of getting cold wearing it either. It looks like heaven to wear it on a cold Winter's day. And wearing it open like you are doing here offsets your turquoise, pink and multi-printed outfit (love that tunic!) perfectly! Besos xxx

  7. Well I'm not surprised that tunic was a sudden purchase - it's beautiful! Love your shearling coat and I bet you're lovely and warm in it. Totally agree; vintage items can be worked into any outfit.

    Stay warm!

  8. That coat is an absolute dream! You've added your trademark style to it with a colourful outfit. Beautiful!
