Coat Crazy

I have a million coats. I have a long, red spring coat, a herringbone winter coat, a black pea-coat, a long, black puffy coat, and I have a trench coat and that doesn’t include my jackets. Oh and I have a ski jacket. Two maybe. But for some reason I can’t get enough. I really don’t need anymore coats. And not to mention you only wear a coat when you are running from your car to a building so you really don’t even need to put much effort into it. I guess it must be my obsession with details. I think it comes with being an editor. I am now obsessed with the idea of getting a navy blue pea-coat with a hood. Kind of like this one from Old Navy. Maybe I will purchase it when it goes on sale so I don’t feel as guilty purchasing something I really don’t need. I feel better having shared my obsession. 

Easy Halloween costume idea

Halloween costume
Halloween costume by The Cosmopolitan Clevelander featuring Luella

I am being Blair Waldorf for Halloween. This was easy and cheap because I already own clothes similar to these. My blazer is from Forever 21 though and my knee socks are those 50 cent ones from Marc’s, so these more expensive options are just examples of what you can use. But this costume can be created for much less. What do you think? What are you dressing up as? Part of the reason I am being Blair Waldorf is because we are going to a Heroes and Villains party. I would say Blair qualifies as a villain.

I have changed my costume since this post, but I still think it’s a good idea. Now I am being Vanna White and the boyfriend is being Bob Barker!

Reader vote: Date outfit

My boyfriend and I are celebrating our 3-year anniversary this weekend. I want to wear something really cute, but not too dressy because we are just doing dinner and a movie. Here are the two outfits I have narrowed it down to. Dear readers, please help me decide and please excuse my hair because it was a long day, and I actually had to take these photos twice because the first set came out blurry.
Outfit #1: Onsie
I would wear the onsie like this for work because unfortunately the onsie has not been approved in our dress code—even with tights.
Then for our date, I would change into my onsie and throw on some gold jewelry and a colorful cardigan. What do you think?
Outfit #2: Floral pattern dress and knee socks

These are those knee socks that I got for 50 cents at Marc’s. The dress is from Forever 21. It is supposed to be 65 degrees on Friday so either of these looks would be weather appropriate. I could even throw on my Wellies. But which outfit would you wear? Or should I tone it down and wear jeans. Jeans can be boring sometimes.
