Outerwear, Star Sweatshirt & More Skull Scarves

Remember the outerwear dilemna I posted about here? I couldn't decide between this grey peacoat and this navy faux-shearling coat:

Old Navy Pea Coat and Old Navy Shearling Coat

As expected in situations like this - my choice turned out to be NEITHER and BOTH! I ended up getting the peacoat style but in navy (and XS rather than S). I prefer the shrunken fit - and have been wearing my new coat a lot! Can't believe it costs less than $30!!!

My Winter Uniform: Hat: F21, Turtleneck & Coat: Old Navy, Jeans: Garage, Boots: Hunter

In other non-surprising news - I keep getting sucked in by Garage clothing. When I picked up my red skinnies from this post - I found 2 more items that I "needed". First was this oversized & slouchy star sequin sweatshirt:


A perfect compromise for those days when you want to wear something soft and comforting but not completely slobby. I definitely plan on pairing this with my new red skinnies soon - the grey will tone down the brightness of the skinnies.

Alexander McQueen Skull Scarf and Garage Skull Scarves
My skull scarf collection: Coral scarf: Alexander McQueen, Black & White, Pink & Grey scarves: Garage

My other great find was this large print skull scarf in pink & grey. Don't ask me why I keep accumulating skull scarves - I'm not sure myself. But skulls or not, with this color combination and softness - I'll always love this scarf!

Garage is definitely my weakness - which store can't you help buying from?  



By the way - the winner of my CZ earring giveaway is:

    1. Too funny that you hadn't been there since High School LOL! I started going to Garage once its sister store Chado closed - I prefer Garage to Dynamite - not sure why but the clothes seem to be of better quality (I think all three stores I mentioned were owned by the same company before - not sure if they still are).
