Camel Coat: Maje (old but love this one and this one so much) | Bodysuit: Wolford (wearing a small)| Denim: Levis (TTS) | Belt: Saint Laurent (similar) | Bag: Mango | Boots: Balenciaga |

So, I know I say the word “uniform” for several of my outfits, but this one really deserves to be called that, particularly in the fall and winter. Today, I  wanted to answer a few questions that I (often) get asked on these particular pieces.

Fall Teaser

Q: Do you have both a Wolford bodysuit tee and turtleneck?

A: Yes, I have both! They seriously are the BEST quality and so flattering. Also, they don’t shrink, get dingy looking or stretch-out. I know they don’t come cheap, but they’re a worthy investment for my closet, especially the turtleneck!

Q: Did you cut the hem of these jeans

A: I did and I cut off quite a bit. I modeled the length after another pair of jeans that I already own and used this fabric scissor. The right scissor makes all the difference and I use mine way more than I ever thought!

Q: What style Levi’s are you wearing?

A: I’m wearing the 721’s! I love that they’re nice and high-waisted and not stiff (like some other styles.)

Q: Which style Celine sunglasses are you wearing?

A: The Tilda and from what I heard, this particular style is discontinued. Also, I lost this pair for several weeks and was devastated because I love them so much.

Q: How’s the quality of the Fall Teaser Mango bag?

I’m actually shocked at how expensive it looks in person! Also, I’m shocked at how often I’ve been wearing it since bringing it home. No complaints from me!

    The Celine sunglasses look killer on you. I’ve been searching everywhere for a big glamorous pair and saw some Celine pairs at Nordstrom Rack for anyone also looking. xAllie

      I was dying for a pair as well (Helena, the shopping enabler!) and last year found a gorgeous pair on TheRealReal. The quality is unmatched.

        The best, right?

    • Helena

      Oh! Great to know about Nordstrom Rack!

  • Francine

    I meant to add that I really like these kinds of posts! Can you do something just on the denim you’re into?

    • Helena

      Hey Francine,

      Yes! So glad you enjoyed this and will do them more often for sure.

  • Rach

    Thanks for answering these questions because honestly I was thinking of asking them!

    I love this look

    I love the Mango bag and actually ordered it when I you on IG wearing it 🙂
    Just kinda worried the color is prone to rubbing off, as I had similar experiences with “cheaper” bags.
    So, what’s your experience with this beautiful Mango bag? I really don’t want to ruin my dearly-loved jackets/coats…. Highly appreciating your opinion!

    Cant believe these shoes went up $300! insane but so so good.

  • Violet

    Love the outfit! Gotta find a good coat this Fall. Thank you for sharing the answer!

  • Jenni

    OMG!! Amazing shots..You looking so gorgeous in Camel Coat…Everything is Perfect collection.

  • Kelly

    Just wondering if the Wolford tee bodysuit is a thong like the turtleneck, it doesn’t say in the shopbop description. TIA!

  • Lelita Cannon

    Bought the topshop coat in camel and was also inspired to buy a floral print sock bootie! Thinking about copping the mango bag next. Outfit is so chic, and I always love how simple, yet sophistocated you look. That’s my type of approach!

  • What I Wore This Week

    […] errands on Wednesday, and I snapped this picture when this bag arrived in the mail (hat tip to Brooklyn Blonde!) I thought it was really fun and different, and I’ve been wanting to change up the black bag […]
