There is something about a statement piece that can take a look to a whole other level. When I got these pictures back, I could not help but think....dang, this look is so glam! A piece that makes an impact, one that you know is going to turn heads is so worth it if you really want to show your style. It can also elevate a piece that was fairly inexpensive, like this striped dress from Old Navy (under $20!!). This coat from H&M (no longer on the website...enter sad face emoji here), does the trick for me. I am more in love with it every single time I put it on and I love making up different looks with it.
A couple months ago, I got an email with this coat on it and knew it had to be mine. I quickly ran (virtually, of course) to the website, filled my shopping cart and haven't looked back. So much glee happened it is almost embarrassing when it finally came in, and I was pleasantly surprised how much in my closet actually went with this statement making piece.
What I learned from this is that when you have a gut reaction for a piece that stands out, do like I did and just pull the trigger. I guarantee you will be thinking about it again and again, and will be so sad if you try later and it is sold out. This has happened too many times with me.
Side note, don't forget to use my code "emilyxoxo3" to get your first month of Rocksbox FREE! The Gorjana bracelet shown in today's look was in last month's box and I miss it terribly.
