BonBon Brunette and the 60's Princess Coat

Doesn't this post's title sound like a 1960's cover band? I love it! 
Believe it or not, it gets cold around here and although most of my coats are woolen, which do keep me warm and dry, only this one has a hood. I know we're all trained to stay away from piling on a single color, but I couldn't help but enjoy myself in these rich, chocolate browns. This checkered-collar dress is one of those perfect "cold day" dresses, too. It is wool, but soft, and although I always wear a slip, it doesn't have the faintest trace of being scratchy. I hadn't intended on going out in full retro, but after I added the purse, I think I sealed the deal! My color balance on the camera was off as the outside light kept changing from overcast, to cloudy, to sunny. The purse, belt and shoes are all very close in hue. The dress, being a bit more muted and  dark really contrasted well against the trim of the coat. As for me, well I'm a natural bonbon brunette, so I guess I had no choice but to be complicit!
