I think everyone needs a few statement pieces in their closet whether it is casual or dressy. This can easily be done with color. I have always wanted a red jacket and I finally got one! I purchased this coat from ModCloth (BBDakota) and I am soooo happy with it. There were a few negative comments about the coat, but I knew the brand was good and it looked so cute, so I thought I would try it out and I was completely happy with my purchase. This is the second coat that I have purchased of this brand and I am always happy with the quality and fit of their pieces.

This is my statement piece for the day and I do love red. Red is one of my favorite colors and I am so happy I finally purchased a red coat. It is such a versatile coat that can be worn all year around. I know I will be wearing this a lot. I am sometime a little crazy, because I do live in Canada and it is cold this time a year, but sometimes I just don't care and wear clothes that I want to wear. This jacket for instance, I am sure most people wouldn't dare to walk out in the cold in this, but I did. If I was going out tobogganing or skiing of course I wouldn't wear it, but if my time outside includes getting in and out of the car, walking short distance in places then I figure why not. I had to run a few errands and take husband lunch, so the actually time I spent outside was only 5 min. I wear what I want and I try not to let weather discourage me from wearing something that I want. If you do have to spend time outside, then layers, lots of layers!

I paired my jacket with my wide leg jeans and a red pump. Undeneathe the coat I am wearing a white light weight sweater with camisole, finally I accessorized with some antique hoops. I am really happy with this coat and I absolutely love the color. I hope I have inspired you today with my look. ~Joey
