Drama queen






(L'Wren Scott matador jacket, Nanette Lepore cardigan, Elizabeth & James pants, Guess boots)

I don't get many chances to wear my beloved L'Wren Scott matador jacket. But I paid so much for it that now I figure I may as well wear it whenever the mood strikes. No matter how many pictures I take, it's nearly impossible to capture the true beauty of this piece--its smooth thick fabric, its detailed carved buttons, its precise cut and fit. And I just love how it makes me feel when I put it on, all dramatic and mysterious.

I once recall trying to explain to a friend my passion for beautiful clothes, but she only shook her head in disbelief. That's when I dragged her to my closet, took out the L'Wren Scott, and made her feel the lovely fabric. I can still see the expression on her face as she stroked the heavy silk and took in the mandarin collar and pleated tailcoat. Ah-ha! I think she got it.

WOW, the coat is amazing! It is truly a work of art. The ruffled top underneath definitely gives it a dramatic touch! I'm a huge L'Wren Scott fan...she does amazing work!

Very androgynous Tiff! You're so fashionable :)

Damn. This is so amazing I'm drooling. I love L'Wren Scott too, but I haven't been able to bring myself to pay for her stuff. This jacket is a real investment piece--something you could give your daughter (should you have one, of course!).

About the Marc Jacobs shoes: They should fit a 8.5 just fine. I usually wear between a 9 and a 9.5, and they are just a little bit small for me.

I can also do a return if you really don't like them. The only thing is that you will have to pay to ship them back to me! I hope that's okay. I ship them to you for free.

Anyway, let me know if you decide to purchase them by leaving me a comment!
