Casual Green with a touch of Glamour

"The woman is the most perfect doll that I have dressed with delight and admiration"

"La mujer es la muñeca más perfecta que he vestido con deleite y admiración"
~Karl Lagerfeld




When I read the quote by Karl Lagerfeld, I felt great and warm! It's true that women are the most perfect dolls.
When we were little we used to play with dolls, but now that we are all adults, we are our own dolls. We get to dress up and look good which make us feel great. I think it is a type of caress that we owe to ourselves.
About this look. I did feel like a doll when I wore this outfit. For the past weeks our days have been very cold, but this coat kept me toasty. I usually wear high boots everyday because I have to wait for the bus and the train to go to college, but when I have to ride in my husband's car I usually wear pumps or flats like this day. I scored this beautiful vintage coat via shopgoodwill.com and even thought it is a little bit big, I want to rock it. Would you do the same?
I decided to pair this military look with my leopard pumps because I think leopard print looks great with green.

Cuando lei la frase por Karl Lagerfeld, me senti halagada! Porque es verdad, la mujer es la muñeca mas perfecta.
Cuando eramos pequeñas usuabamos jugar con muñecas, pero ahora que somos adultas, somos nuestras propias muñecas. Nos llegamos a vestir y lucir lindas, lo cual nos hace sentir muy bien. Creo que es una forma de caricia que nos debemos a nosotras mismas.
Ahora a hablar sobre el atuendo. Si me senti como una muñeca cuando vesti esta ropa. Estas semanas han sido bien frias, pero este abrigo gigante me mantuvo calentita. Usualmente visto botas altas cada dia porque tengo que esperar por el bus y el tren para ir a la preparatoria, pero cuando salgo con mi esposo en el auto, suelo usar tacos o ballerinas. Compre este hermoso abrigo via shopgoodwill.com (es como ejercito de salvacion) y aunque es un poco grande, lo visto de todas maneras. Tu harias lo mismo?
Decidi combinar este atuendo de una honda militar con estos tacos de estampado leopardo, ya que se ven re lindos con verde.

    2. I know that it lists your old blog still, perhaps if you removed your old blog, and then tried to re-add it?

    1. aawe Michelle! thank you so much. I know, me too. I love animals a lot ^^! I thought that since this fur is vintage (old) I won't hurt anybody :( I'm not planning in buying a new one either (I promise you). I have another old one that I never wore, and it's breaking apart. I do feel your feelings and I wish people stop making new ones since now the industry can make great faux fur and many animals are in risk of extinction. If they want to wear them, they should wear the old ones that are already around. I really appreciate your thoughts and I wanted to open my heart to you too :) !
      thanks for being my fashionable friend :)
      kisses!
