Autumn Sun

Autumn Sun

It was both a sunny & windy day down here in my city today. It took us a while to style my hair which was blown all around me, often covering my eyes and face. Well, I could say I just had one of these ‘bad hair days‘. And believe me, even though it brings a lot of fun during the photoshoot, at the same time it can be very frustrating and annoying.

To help create a casual fall outfit, I used an oversized wool coat that functions as a cover-up. Cover-ups are extremely versatile and an ideal addition to your fall wardrobe. My coat is a unique handmade piece made by my favorite personal tailor and features an oversized collar. I’m always stunned by the tailor’s ability to produce perfectly fitting pieces that meet my individual requirements. As much as I love shopping in the city center, nothing can beat the experience and joy of having something custom made.

In order to create your custom clothing the tailor is going to measure you and help by suggesting a style that would look good on you. They will also discuss with you the best way to incorporate your custom requirements and suggest ideas you never thought of. I worked closely with my tailor to determine the style of my coat and I visited their workshop several times to discuss the progress. It wasn’t a hassle because I did it during the weekend or late afternoons.

This last week I went back to have a discussion on any final adjustments, and just a few days later it was finished and I picked it up. They did the work perfectly. Although I was absolutely delighted with the quality of the coat and service, finding a good tailor that fits you isn’t an easy job.

What I really like about my new oversized wool coat is the unique style that it has. The shoulder-draping collar adds some drama, and the lining is smooth and uses colorful patterns.

The oversized wool coat works together with the monochrome plaid scarf and Calzedonia gray knitted tights, Sisley hobo bag and my Pittarello chamois leather boots. These knitted tights were love at first sight from the moment I saw them in the store’s display. On top of it I’ve added a pair of Chanel earrings, H&M sunnies and a silver ring that looks absolutely fabulous. What do you think? Waiting for your precious comments.
