Do You See This Coat?

This post is inspired by Kanye Omari West. Last week, paparazzi approached him in the airport and asked him was he getting into fashion. His response was, "Am I stepping into fashion......Do you see this coat?" So I've picked out a few statement coats that would make you want to say to someone in your best Kanye voice "Do you see this coat".

The Look For Less: Dior

Dior So Real Look for Less

This season I've been in the game of buying sunglasses and jacket/coats; I just love them. Are they always in my price range...not so much. I was ecstatic when I saw the Dior So Real Sunglasses this winter. They just screamed Derria! But that price tag of $500 knocked me straight on my frugal butt! Per the usual, its a our DUTY to keep our eyes open for the looks for less and that's just what I found as I surfed through eBay looking for new sunglasses.These Dior inspired sunglasses are under $20 and are a spitting image of the actual designer pair. Check them out!

Wrap jackets have earned their keep the last few seasons and they will be perfect in the spring for the cooler days or nights. They come in just about any color and are very light . Sometimes seen belted or just open to show of the rest of your look. I came across a few online at Forever 21, very frugal options under $50 with great color options. See them below:
