Vests are tricky – but the right vest can go a long way. Ultimately, I created this vest as an extension for a leather moto. It’s meant for those days when it’s just a bit too chilly to go out only in your leather – throw this on and suddenly you have this gorgeous extra shield of warmth.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s not only for the colder days. It can also just be worn over a fine knit and the elegance of it won’t be compromised. It truly is that perfect transitional piece.

Last weekend, my SO surprised me with a weekend trip in NYC for my birthday. I’m always there for work so it was sooo wonderful being there and really enjoying the city. I had gone to Buddakan years ago and I remembered how great the food/ambiance was so I figured it would be the perfect place to celebrate. And it was! We had the most amazing time. Our table was totally intimate, the dishes were delicious and the ambience was incredible. It was really the ultimate dining experience.

Side note, I’ve literally been living in the LAMARQUE Cordelia Coat. I’ve dressed it up in my look above but check out my post Street Elegance in Paris where I am dressing it down! Shop this incredible coat here.

This LAMARQUE oversize grey duster was the perfect coat to wear during my recent trip to Paris and, to be honest, I have literally been living in it ever since. It gives me such a boost of confidence as I walk – not only is the length totally dramatic but it has these high side slits that makes the fabric whip around as I walk and that feeling is everything. It’s made out of a wool blend double face fabric which makes the coat very light but still keeps the element of warmth. The beauty of double face wool is that the entire coat is finished by hand. The actual fabric is 2 pieces of wool held interlaces together and the garment pieces are all assembled by hand creating a totally luxurious item.

I styled the LAMARQUE Cordelia coat (shop here) with a LAMARQUE Haze silver leather skirt (available next month), a t-shirt I picked up from ultimate parisian boutique Colette (which I am so sad is closing 🙁 ), Adidas Stan Smiths (shop here) and a LAMARQUE leather clutch (available soon).

Today I spent all day remerchandising our store in downtown Montreal. I love spending the day there because I get to chat with the women that walk in and I get to know our customer a little better each time. One of them was even wearing a Lamarque leather jacket from a few seasons ago – seeing that really made my day! <3
