There's just that "je ne sais quoi" about a full winter white outfit. The crisp lines, fresh glow and stand out appearance has always been a favorite in my book. When other parts of the globe may be in full spring mode, London still has that winter chill. So I decided to bring out my sample sale steal that I purchased last year and retire my trusty Burberry black coat for awhile.
Before I moved to London, I owned one coat - a black Zara parka that I only bought before I went traveling through Patagonia's glaciers. It's safe to say I went coat crazy at sample sales last March and found this Reiss Archive beaut. I fell in love with this coat not just because of the exceptional quality, but the divine colour truly caught my eye. Darker than a fresh snow white, lighter than a camel - this colour was one of kind and I knew it would be the perfect addition to brighten up my winter wardrobe. It's hard to imagine yourself wearing a coat this bright when the masses on the morning rush hour tube are in their standard head-to-toe black attires. But who cares, right? I never wear all black and know myself enough that even a big city like London certainly won't change that. I always say if I like what I'm wearing, I feel good and that's the most important part of styling yourself. Confidence is key and you'll never know who you'll meet on that morning tube ride..
