Elimovna (Through the Lens) in November


I bought this Plenty by Tracy Reese coat on sale late last winter. I didn't get to wear it too much but when it was time to pack it away I felt conflicted about whether it would be worth holding onto. It's not the thickest or warmest coat. And it looks kind of silly when it isn't buttoned up. Still, once it became cold again, this ended up being the first coat I pulled from storage. Underneath it I wore another sack dress that apparently becomes too short when it gathers up from under the coat. I swear it isn't so scandalous when I am unencumbered by the top layer.


The dress is Marc by Marc Jacobs. I picked it up from a Rue La La final sale a few years back. The hat was made for me by my friend Kristen. I wanted a purple elfin hat that was super warm. She's very talented!

Correction! A reader informed me this was not the Elimovna as that name was reserved for the beautiful muted pink and black version. This was called Through the Lens. Thank you so much to the commenter for the information!

That's actually the Through-the-Lens coat. The Elimovna was the pink version. I have both b/c I have no self control :)

:) Thank you Tricia! I might.

Anon, thank you so much! That is really helpful info. When I bought it, it was long gone from the site and I couldn't find much info on it. The pink version was so beautiful. I don't blame you for grabbing both.

I would keep mine but I fear I am too busty for it to look right on me.

I love that hat on you. I was going to say that you look like a cute Hershey Kiss until I read that the hat is purple :)
