Raiding My Sister's Closet: Winter White

Tuesday, February 4, 2014

Several years ago, before I met Adam, I went on a date to an opera.  I had never been to the opera, and Merrick came over to help me get ready.  After many minutes of digging through my closet and coming up empty, Merrick lent me a beautiful white wool coat that she had worn over to my apartment.  I felt really lovely the whole night and was quite thrilled with the outfit and especially the coat.  Many months later, I went on a date with a friend that we had seen at the opera that night, and we were talking about having been to that opera and you know what, he mentioned that he remembered that I had been wearing a beautiful white coat!!!  Like 8 months later!  And he was not a fashionista at all.  That, my friends, is the power of winter white.   Sadly, I don't have an awesome white coat in my wardrobe, so this beautiful, flowy white blouse has to do instead.  I love this blouse.  It is my go-to shirt right now.  Perfect for layering, long sleeved for my freezing self in winter and will work with the change in season that is rapidly coming to Austin.
