Zara outerwear makes me wish LA would get cold.

I miss cold weather only because I miss all the coats I could be stocking up on right now.  With a good coat and a great pair of boots, it doesn’t even really matter (too much) what you have on underneath.  It could be a Hanes tee and jeans, but your flawless wool coat, statement […]
