Outfit Of The Day for January 10, 2012. No Gloves Required.

The weather had been unseasonably warm in Chicago. Today it may reach 50 degrees, which makes it easier to get dressed and out the door with just a few layers. This Zara coat doesn’t even have buttons, but I don’t need them! Nor do I need to wear gloves, so I can wear a huge vintage ring.
Top: This top is actually a dress that I make into a tunic from time to time. All Saints Toria Dress, now $72.50
Coat: Zara Black Wool Coat with Leather Sleeves, no longer available. See THE ROW Leather-Sleeve Coat, $3100 or ASOS Premium Coat With Leather Sleeves, now $174.53
Jeans: Geography by Chicago Designer Michelle Alcott, no longer available. Try these J Brand Jeans Maria Mazzaro High-Rise Leggings, $220

Ring: Vintage Silver and Black Onyx. If a ring is too big for you, try it on a different finger. This Genuine Sterling Silver Oval Black Onyx Band Ring, $49 is similar and timeless.
Belt: Black leather and Silver Studded belt from Intermix, no longer available. This Streets Ahead Skinny Studded Belt in Black, $189 is something that I want now, and this
Linea Pelle Women’S Wide Waist Sliced Studded Belt in Black, $129 will work well over tops and sweaters.
Handbag: Helcat Black Leather Lace-Up Bag, no longer available. This Cole Haan Village Zip Hobo in Black, $298 has a similar shape.
Shoes: Boutique Nine, no longer available. These Madison Harding Rita Suede Wedge Booties, 208.60  or ONE by Elizabeth Brady Suede Wedge Booties, $142.50 are similar.
