I tend to shop pretty often but in my defense, it’s not my fault. See, I like to peruse stores like H&M, Topshop, Zara, and ASOS for what’s new all the time because of FOMO (fear of missing out). No, I don’t NEED to do this to myself and I don’t always buy something (despite my shopping ways I’m a “less is more” kind of girl when it comes to my wardrobe) but if I don’t look then what’s going to happen is I’m going to be scrolling through IG and someone is going to have THEE item and I will go to try and buy it and it’ll be big fat SOLD OUT. #lifeasashortyshouldntbesorough

But anyway, a couple of weeks ago I was at Nordstrom in the Topshop boutique (meanwhile just last weekend I was at the new 5th ave Topshop smh) and I saw this fur stole in all it’s King Jaffe Joffer glory and knew I HAD to have it. I even said as much in my fitting room pic I posted on my Instagram. It’s that perfect piece that’ll jazz up even the plainest Janest of coats and look what it did for a simple white button down shirt outfit :)

    I have been eyeing that skirt for a few weeks, but not sure what size to order. How’s the stretch? What size did you get?

    • Danielle says:


      Check out their return policy and order two sizes if you’re not sure. There’s very little stretch to it—it’s not tight where you can’t walk but if you have more pronounced hips and thighs it’ll of course have a closer fit.
