Around the Color-Block

It seems like Spring weather is taking its sweet-ass time delaying its arrival (just like the shoes I ordered online). With the temperature continuing to plummet down to zero degrees, I suggest never stop investing in statement coats. I can't help but be aware of the correlation between dressing chic and staying warm, it seems that at times they are inversely proportional. So what better way to end this sartorial struggle than to just burrow into an over-sized coat equipped with a bumpy textile resembling braille. I'd imagine this coat reads "I'm not comfortable with people touching me". But besides the feeling of protection that comes with a chunky outerwear (which apparently is included in the retail price), flick some color on yourself just to give the eyes a lil' something to feast on. Any color or texture blocking would suffice in your attempt to provoke the average funeral-appropriate-attired pedestrian who would surely notice you're the new kid on the color-block.

Big thanks Satchel Company for my lovely new color-block baby!

  9. Can't believe we haven't met up yet. You should be ashamed of yourself, for being so incredibly busy :p
    Just kidding babes.
    Actually, we should set something up when I get a job (perhaps at the end of next I'll get that and we can set up a dinner/lunch afterwards to CELEBRATE the fact that I won't be POOR in London) hehe

    Damn tourists - she says forgetting she's still considered one - but seriously, the hotels+hostels are filled with people but the teenage groups are THE worst.

  33. I am DYING over the Viktor and Rolf! I agree, totally stand out from the crowd with color blocking in zero degree weather. Loving the oversized outerwear, seriously, I need to invest. And also get myself a kick ass color blocked bag because I am completely inspired by this outfit. Love this!

  37. Hi nathan. Thank you for your amazing comment. It will go down in "satin-diaries" comment hall of fame as one of the most amazing comment with substance. Its usually about following each other back like an obligation type. Lol. I am not complaining though. :D haha

    With that coat on "no one can touch you". you have a very unique fashion sense, I would have definitely added a belt to keep everything together but you look amazing.

    Please let me know if you would be interested to follow each other via bloglovin,GFC and Facebook. If you are, you will find all the details on my blog and just leave a comment. I would be more than happy to do the same pronto so that we can keep in touch and keep leaving substantial comments.
