Winter Edition: Day 8 > Dress up a coat

You see what I did there? It looks like a coat? Maybe? No? Ok, moving on...

Coats in and of themselves tend to be icing. I think just about everyone who lives in a cooler climate has a decent, good looking coat that adds instant polish or style to their outfit. The idea of dressing up a coat hadn't really occurred to me (possibly just because I live in AZ which doesn't have a real winter) until I saw this post from Elsie at A Beautiful Mess.

The stuff she added is simple but adds so much to an already awesome coat.

If you're feeling crafty you could try adding a fur collar to your coat (or cape!).

You could add a belt, a bow, a flower, a brooch, whatever. Up to you

Come back tomorrow to add your link. Don't forget to go check the Flickr group!
