polished parka


I was coveting this parka from Aritzia for the longest time, but the price just didn't fit my budget. And really, is Vancouver cold enough for a parka? Well, I was proved wrong this week with our chilly temperatures and nice dusting of snow! Luckily I snagged this coat in a similar style during boxing week for a cool $50. Add in my favourite leather boots, a striped shirt and a messy top knot, and I've come up with one of my new go-to outfits for running errands or an early class at SFU. What are your own go-to outfits? And, I hope everyone in Vancouver stays safe in the snowfall this week!

  13. I think I'm just really cold all the time! Even in my Aritzia parka I don't feel warm enough-and I wear a big heavy track jacket underneath! Now I've got my eye on a Mackage parka that had down and is lined with fur.

    I don't know how I'd manage living anywhere else in Canada where they have "real" winters!

    That parka looks great on you and such a good price!
