Hello, my name is Mimi_Style…and I own a piece of clothing from *coughcough* Newport News.
Yes, I am talking about the website/catalog that induces PTS-like memories of horrendous 90s and early Y2K-years fashions. Those butt-shaping streeetch jeans? Yikes! Matching crochet tunic and capri leggings? Hmm, no thanks!
Buttt, before you judge, hear me out! So I was in desperate need of a Kate Moss-esque leopard print coat, but clearly could not afford the YSL one of my dreams. Well, using that dangerously efficient retail search engine on InStyle.com, I stumbled upon the coat for right now’s salary bracket on Newport New’s website.
It is an incredibly chic, knee-length, fully-lined…wait for it, $40 beauty. After replacing the original tan buttons with more me, thus gaudier gold ones, I was ready to take this kitty out to prowl. I have received endless compliments from the ladies and multiple headturns from the menfolk.
What can I say? It’s a unisex delight.
