Happy New Year: Reversible Vest & OTK Slim Boots

Happy New Year everyone!! Here’s the first OOTD of 2012 and the temperature has been kind lately, which I can’t complain.

Few friends came into town from London visiting, so we took them for some yummy Taiwanese food at my favorite restaurant in Rockville and headed over to DC for some touristy stuff. Good Chinese food is scarce in London apparently, because they were ordering like crazy, as evident below.

This H&M coat has been my everyday coat past couple of weeks and has been holding up pretty well against the cold.

Also when I was at the mall last Friday exchanging stuff from xmas, I happen to find this vest at a nearby Bebe store and fell in looooove! The faux fur is sooo soft to the touch and I love how it’s reversible as well. Although I did try the vest on the reverse side to see how that would look, I still much prefer the faux fur peaking out from inside-out. ^_^

The bad thing is I didn’t have any luck finding this online, so you may need to head into the store and check it out. At any rate, I can tell that I will be getting the most use out of this vest.

I found these Steve Madden OTK boots here to be reminiscent of Stuart Weitzman’s 50/50 pair with some slight differences. However, the 50/50 boots are such a splurge to me that when I found these SM ones at a fraction of the cost, I was sold. They were quite comfy and slimming against tights – loving them so far.

Also, can I tell you how much I love this caterpillar necklace from Bar III? I wore it last night for NYE’s potluck and today’s outing and simply love it. It’s so versatile that you can totally wear this dressing up or down, adding a unique touch to any outfit.

Thanks so much for reading and I hope everyone had an awesome NYE’s counting down! 2011 for me has been quite eventful and I’m only hoping 2012 will be the same! Wishing you all the best of happiness and prosperity for 2012. =)
