My pick again! While going through my Pinterest boards I kept coming back to this picture:

There's so much to love here...a gorgeous silhouette, chunky metallic belt, big splash of red, big and bold winged eyeliner rolled up in a fantastic photograph. I adore it all.
I picked up this wonderful blue coat back when I was quite pregnant with Stinky (with very high hopes that it would fit when I got unpregnant). Every winter I rediscover it and remember how much I love it. I'd totally save it in the event of a fire. When I decided on the inspiration my mind immediately went to this coat. The end result was not something I ever would have come up with on my own but I loved it!

I feel like the pictures didn't really capture the silhouette but the bottom was quite full (I layered two full skirts to try and mimic the shape in the inspiration pic). I looked rather hour-glassy, which is quite the accomplishment for my squarey body. I also did a pretty serious winged eyeliner which was a fun change from my normal, more conservative little line.
I was worried I'd be a little overdressed for our trip to the ghost town but there were a lot of other women wandering around in dresses. Granted, they were paid actors (and some of them were faux hookers) but still. I was in good company.
