One of a Kind Finds: January

Hi there! This month, I seemed to gravitate toward really nice thick coats, or luxury-feeling/looking coats and expensive shoes. So kind of a weird month or a very normal month, depending on how you look at it or how well you know me. I really wish I had each and every one of these items in my closet. They're just so freaking awesome. Keep reading for a detailed list of the lovely, lovely items you see above!

  1. MINKPINK Colourblock Faux Fur Coat - I have been kind of oddly obsessed with fur ever since it started getting cold. There's just something about running my hand on a thick fur coat or scarf that is just so appealing to me. I love how there's an unexpected colourblock detail to this one.
  2. Topshop Betty Boucle Scallop Jacket - I think the reason why I love this jacket is pretty self-explanatory (hint: my favourite colour's pink).
  3. Topshop ARGO Heavy Strap Boots - As I've said in posts before, I love anything that's in an oil slick print/pattern/looks like there's oil spilled on it but in an artistic and fashionable way. I also love chunky heeled boots that would make me look taller, so I'd say that's a match made in heaven.
  4. ASOS Daisy Elbow Patch Sweater - Quirky details on sweaters are always a plus, so I'll definitely be DIY-ing this soon, so keep an eye out for that! Perhaps I'll make a pastel version, we'll see.
  5. Cooperative Tartan Cardigan - This looks like something I'd find in the very, very back of my dad's closet and I've been enjoying stealing clothing/accessories from him lately, so evidently, I gravitated towards this thick and cozy-looking cardigan.
  6. ModCloth Block Star Platforms - Sometimes, you just want/need crazy shoes in your life. Well, more want than need, but you know what I mean. These are like Creepers' crazy wacko sister that you just can't help but love.
  7. Baublebar Tortoise Vignette Pendant - When I glanced at this necklace online, I thought, "Hmm, that's a cool ladybug!" Of course, it's not a ladybug, but I just love how cool and quirky it looks.
  8. Nasty Gal Creep Creep Sweater - Speaking of Creepers from two items ago, I thought this sweater would be appropriate to add to the list. I really, really want to DIY this sweater so badly, though I kind of feel obligated to get myself a pair of Creepers before doing so...
  9. ModCloth Date of Your Dreams Earrings - These earrings just looked so magical and whimsical to me, reminding me of my childhood and would add a nostalgic and vintage touch to any outfit.
  10. UNIF Cake Rainbow Knit Sweater - I'm not usually a fan of rainbow-coloured items because I just find that a lot of them look really tacky, but this, this is just awesome. I don't exactly know how I'd wear it, but it's freaking awesome nonetheless.

  1. I'm at the point in my life where I can like these things but can't justify buying them over a pair of trousers or some other work-appropriate clothes. :( #1, though...

    1. I get what you mean. :) These monthly posts are more like wishlist posts for me, to be honest. However, you have given me an idea to revamp the series a bit, so thank you!!! - J
