I'M ON THE CASE...


(everything thrifted from head to toe except shoes)
vintage double breasted mini trench coat, vintage Smokey the Bear hat, vintage Victorian briefcase bag, Target socks, Forever 21 faux suede clogs, vintage bangles/watch, Mad Lady tribal cuff, random rings and vintage belt

You know how I get all warm and tingly inside when I think of trench coats especially vintage trench coats!! So when I found this one I literally exploded all over the thrift store...blood and guts EVERYWHERE, haha! I was over the moon cause it was my size but when I unbuttoned it, the tag said Jessica....SOLD! I was halfway to the register at that point. The fit was soooooo perfect and I didn't even have to rip out the shoulder pads, which is extremely rare in vintage clothes. 

I wore it as a dress since I've been hunting down one online for like ever and it's enough fabric to cover my ass and flaunt my best asset...hello, as if you didn't know, MY LEEEEGS!
Since the coat was fucking awesome I thought the briefcase bag was a given. The details on this bag is BEYOND INSANE, I love that the people are padded so it's kinda 3-D! I don't know if you can see it but in person it's unreal. 

Anywho, love this look, don't you?

Dope bag! I love victorian (inspired) stuff.. and overall that's an elegant outfit.. I know that feeling when you find garments in vintage and thrift-stores, when these items sort of speak to you and tell you I was made for you! and now this trenchcoat actually Really Did, to you! with your name in it and all..the color & the collar I really like. I also love that purple lipstick of yours..

Finally, I stumble upon you, and you create the perfect balance in your clothing. Not to mention you find the best fucking fucking dealsssss.
