Chic Chick

Camile_25_LR002When I look back to my childhood, I remember a shy little chickadee.  But, when I look at these pictures, I’m reminded that that wasn’t exactly the case.  I’ve always had a bit of a wild side.  At least fashion-wise.  This coat was purchased on my first big international trip.  In junior high.  I don’t know what’s more insane.  That I’ve held on to clothing for that long or that the clothes still fit.  Whatever the case may be, I remember it well.  My mom took me to London during my semester break.  (My family still makes fun of me because I asked what language they spoke there.)  Among the classic sightseeing, we did a fair amount of shopping.  My mom thought I was nuts, but when I saw this coat, I knew that I had to have it.  The Brits have always been on the cutting edge of fashion and this coat was no exception.  The crazy thing is, in all these years, I don’t think it’s ever been out of style.  It cracks me up that wee me had a developing sense of style way back then.  Not to say that I haven’t made my fair share of mistakes.  But, in my mind, this coat has always been a win.  What can I say?  I was a chic little chick.
