Good morning everyone! So, I know I've been talking about Holiday dressing quite a bit lately, yet I simply cannot consider my holiday dressing guide complete without a mention of one of my go-to combos at the moment! If you've been reading this blog for a while, you may already know that trench coats happen to be a particular weakness of mine. But lately, I've been especially drawn to dressing up trench coats for evening and wearing them as a cool and edgy take on a cocktail dress. One of the reasons is that I love the shape—ultra feminine, you have that cinched waist and flared skirt factor, but also a slight edgy twist thanks to structured shoulder and tailored collar.

The way I personally love dressing them up is with a pair of high-heels and an evening bag. Take today's outfit for example. I was at Neiman Marcus the other day shopping for a last minute Holiday party, when I spotted this insanely beautiful textured trench coat from A.L.C., and I immediately knew I found exactly what I was looking for. For today's look I paired it with a Fendi baguette (absolutely love the floral appliqué detailing) & cute Gucci pumps.

Speaking of shopping at Neiman Marcus, which I must admit, I indulge in quite a bit of as of late, starting today you can get an Early Access to their One Day Designer Sale! I personally believe in investing in designer pieces, especially pieces that I know I will wear over and over again; for example, I can already envision styling this trench coat in many different ways and taking it from night to day with a simple switch of the accessories. Yet, at the end of the day, when I consider investing in a piece, in addition to versatility, I always think whether it has longevity. A classic white trench coat like the one I'm sporting in today's post will never go out of style, and I am confident that I will be able to wear it for many years to come, and that's something that is very important to me. Of course if I can get my designer items on sale, that definitely a win-win kind of a situation! So click here to check out One Day Designer Sale! Happy hunting everyone! :)
