“Fashion is so often presented in the culture as a thing of froth, which, of course, it partly is; but the bubbles are blown with care and a sense of values.” - Anna Wintour

I was flipping through the fashion section of the newspaper about a month ago, and I saw a photo of this French Connection Winter Sun Wool Coat (it also comes in pink, blue and camel):
The coat itself is beautiful (although there have been complaints of it being shapeless), but what made me even more excited was that I actually saw this coat being worn by a girl at my school, and I was privately obsessing over it as we both waited for the bus to arrive. It's made from wool and cashmere-blend, and has the perfect dose of Parisienne-chic, with its romantic ruffle detailing (gorgeous!) and puffed shoulders. There's also a slight oriental influence with the high collar, crossover curved opening, and pouch pockets. Add in a dash of military style with the double-breasted buttons, and you've got yourself one stylish winter wonder.
