  1. Cute late fall look! I love the scarf and the bright pumps!

    Style by Joules

  2. Great look! I always like seeing the different ways you style the swing trench.

    blush and simplicity

  3. Hi Cee, I love your blog! I was wondering if you had to have the trench altered. I'm 4'11" and I don't think you're much taller. Love it but don't want to spend a fortune on alterations. Thanks, Missy

    1. Hey Missy! My jacket is unaltered. I'm almost 5'5" and wearing sz XS. There's a good chance the trench and sleeves will be too long on you, but here are measurements if you'd like to compare against jackets you already own: 14" shoulder-to shoulder, 24" sleeve length, 27.5" collar-to-hem along the back.

      Have you seen Jean's post about altering a similar jacket? She paid $50 for alterations which isn't bad, imo. My tailor consistently charges more for everything, haha.

      Good luck!

    2. Thanks for the info!

  4. Oh the blue pumps goes so well with this ensemble! Love it!

  5. That scarf and the bright pumps are so classy!! Loving the style.


I'd love to hear from you. Constructive criticisms welcome!
