Studly

Blazer? Consignment store Jeans? Joe's Jeans, Winners (here, love them, they go from skinny to flare!) 
Sweater? Maison Scotch Purse? Zara (old, kinda similar idea but great price for suede!) 
Boots? Zara (even older) Collar? Friend's grandmother

I have had this bag for 5 years and I hardly ever use it because there is a stud missing on the other side and it drives me to distraction. I ordered some studs online (quickly... make a joke...) and they were just a bit different. And that drives me to distraction as well. 
Maybe I can make a pattern out of mismatched studs and get my leather guy (quickly... make another joke) to apply them all so they never fall out again. And then I can use this bag without getting all Mariah Carey and only allowing the camera to capture its good side...
It's worth noting that when I bought this bag during the Zara final sales, I was a little worried that I was buying into the stud trend as it was ending. 5 years later and studs are pretty much a classic. You never know what is going to stick around for longer than a season. 
Two years ago I was all like 'platform sneakers? No sir!'. And now I'm thinking I can make these work with just about everything... Oh fashion, you got me questioning my taste level... ha.

No jokes here! I can understand. But it is a very lovely bag! And that is what I find to be so interesting in fashion. One minute you're afraid you've missed a trend, buy five different capes only to find out that you still own them and can wear them six years later. Odd. But good!

OMyGosh! I had a coat just like yours in my (many years ago)college days. It was long tho. It was mid calf and it was so HEAVY, I had to stop wearing it. I had saved and put in on LAY-A-WAY and got it out for Christmas as a gift to myself. After I got it, I wore it for about a month and then hated it because it was so heavy. A jacket like yours it such a better idea. Sorry had to share. :D

Oooops, I was assuming your blazer is leather. It is the exact color of my old coat that was leather; HEAVY, long LEATHER (from the leather guy -hahahhaha)

This is such a chic, simple outfit! Your studded bag is just perfect.

Love the Fur, Jacket, and Jeans to pieces! I REALLY love 'em all together like that! So, did you wear one leg zipped and one unzipped all day? Because that sounds like fun. :o)

That would drive me nuts too. I think a mismatched pattern would be cool, though.

Loving your blazer. Great color!

Love that blazer!
The first thing I ever bought with studs was Zara as well, after spending the day at my desk job, my 50.00 studded top became a 50.00 top with glue marks and the cheap carpet under my desk became studded.

Love the look!
And I'm having second guesses about that sneaker trend as well... LOL

You look classic and gorgeous!

I'm more of a dark denim girl when it comes to jeans, so I haven't gotten into the printed jeans trend. Then I saw some denim zebra stripes on a clearance pair at TJM and seriously thought about trying them on! Fashion definitely makes me question myself sometimes, ha.
