I love how fashion can make you more about a season. I’m not Winter’s biggest fan, but I love coats, boots and being cozy. I quite enjoyed wearing this outfit as I felt so snug. I’m also going through a bit of a jeans phase. Actually I pretty much love these jeans. They are stretchy, super comfy and warm. I think it’s a nice break from all the dresses I wore in Summer. How about you? Are you going through any fashion phases?
On a different note, I was fiddling with this coat I had on and noticed that the label said “Made in China”. I wouldn’t usually have a problem with this, but this coat was bought at YDE. I thought that the clothing sold at YDE was supposed to be designed and made by South African designers. Are the designers now outsourcing their manufacturing to China? I doubt it. We all know the price tags on YDE’s clothing are not “Made in China” prices and it’s a blatant rip-off to sell them as South African creations. I would have felt much worse if I had paid full price for this coat. Luckily, I paid very little for it at one of their sales. I will definitely think twice and look carefully when buying from YDE again. I love a lot of their clothing including this coat, but noone likes to be ripped off.
