What I Wore: Cousin Itt

I adore my new Old Navy coat! Have been wanting something “camel” for a while now, and now, thanks to Old Navy Canada, I got it! Have you checked out their coat section lately? I believe most coats are 30% off in stores right now, and the variety is pretty amazing. This one is lightweight, with a removable faux-fur collar, and also comes in black. Most people that have seen it, cannot believe that it’s from Old Navy! But it is, and I love it!

Same day I got the coat, I stopped by H&M and picked up this hat, and circle scarf (at children’s department). I was so happy with my hat purchase, until I took some photos in it. As soon as my mom saw the photos, she could not stop laughing…the scarf + the hat + sunglasses + the hair = Cousin Itt in her mind. Well, I don’t mind if it brings uncontrollable laughter a smile to her face. To me, this coat and this hat scream 70s. Perhaps, I’ll re-think the scarf and the sunglasses next time around.

And speaking of Cousin Itt…have you figured out what to wear for Halloween? I think, I’m going to shop my closet for a costume this year. I can’t stand the sight of those polyester (Sexy Nurse/Cop/Schoolgirl) costumes. Any fun ideas?

What I Wore: Coat – Old Navy (courtesy of Old Navy); Top – Club Monaco; Pants – Forever21; Hat, Scarf – H&M; Bag – Prada; Shoes – Winners; Sunglasses – Ray Ban

    you’ll make cousin itt proud!
    Old Navy has really stepped up their game.
    I’ve been eyeing on their riding pants, but Eaton ran out my size.
    Must check Yorkdale soon!

    you have forgotten to take out the x-stitching holding the back vent together – and the coat is incredibly creased at the back, which you couldn’t see……but those things are what separates the pros from the amateurs – as a fashion blogger, you should know better!

  • I’m also on a search for a great camel coat, but I’m trying to scope out a vintage one on ebay first. I never would have thought to look at old navy, but it looks great! (Not cousin itt-like at all!)

    Thanks, Lisa! I did notice the stitching after the photos were taken, and it’s now removed. As for the pro vs. amateurs thing, I never said I was a pro. I blog for my own enjoyment, and sometimes things like creases happen – c’est la vie.
