Cropped Puffer Jacket x Klasse14 Timepiece

Claudia Di Capua

Sweater: Genuine People / Coat: H&MJeans: Levi'sSunglasses: Elizabeth & James Heels Public DesireWatch: Klasse14

The Collab

I have grown a new love for watches thanks to blogging. I love sharing the awesome brand I get to work with and happy to say that Klasse14 is one of them. They create details and unique timepieces that are different from the usual. The one I am sporting is called the Volare silver are has such a gorgeous face! I love how it is sunken in a bit giving it that depth and visual appeal. It would make for an awesome holiday gift so make sure to get yours in time!

The Look

I haven't had a puffer coat in a while, so I went with the puffiest one I could find! I was inspired by Danielle of We Wore What as I saw this jacket on her Snapchat, which helped visualize my own look with it. The cropped shape makes it a very street style piece while the puffiness really does help insulate heat. It is super comfy and I love wearing it with fitted jeans and heeled boots. The short length of the jacket actually helps to elongate your body!

The 70's era has been showing up in many of my looks as of late. For some reason, I have been very drawn to the look and colors of that time. This Genuine People sweater for example embodies the knitwear you would see back in the 70's. I love the warm colors (believe it or not) and it paired really well with the jacket. The extra long sleeves have to be my favorites part! They stick out of the sleeves of my jacket making it cozier.

As for my bottoms, this pair of Levi's wedgie fit jeans are a go-to of mine since they work with just about anything. The cropped, raw ankle contrasts perfectly with my white ankle boots. They graze each other just enough. Overall, the look works in a way that has all pieces complementing each other. Whether it's colors matching with the white on the sweater and the heels or cute and style, the look has a flow that I love!

5 Pieces of Advice from the Who What Wear Panel

The Look

Just to give a little context, I attended a panel hosted by Who What Wear where we heard from bloggers like Marianna Hewitt and Wendy of Wendy's Lookbook as well as entrepreneurs such as one of the founders of Bauble Bar. At the end we were able to pull a few pieces from the gifting suite, which is how this look came to be! Although, snagging these items was a miracle because once they let us select pieces, it was like race horses out of the gates!

I chose these pieces because I feel that they would work perfectly together as well as on there own. While this sweater is normally fitted, I went up in size to get the looser fit. I thought to myself "pick items that you'll have a use for (but also hurry up or everything will be gone haha)." The rich striped glitter detail makes this sweater perfect for the holiday season! the gold stands out so well and is overall very festive. 

I love how these pants combine old and new. They incorporate that 80's look while also keeping the cut modern. The belt helps to cinch in the waist and the length looks great rolled up as well. I paired them with a pair of super fitted lace up ankle boots. Boots that hug the ankle closely have always been my preference and look great underneath a wider trouser leg. I linked all of these items above, which are sold at Target. Get them in time for your holiday parties - I know I'll be wearing these items to a few events!

5 Pieces of Advice from the Event

We heard from some amazing speakers including Marianna Hewitt, Wendy Nguyen (Wendy's Lookbook) and Daniella Yacobovsky of Bauble Bar with moderation by Rachel Zeilic! They all offered up some awesome advice, so I figured I'd share a few notes that stood out to me:

1. From Marianna on tips- If you're not following her second account Blog With Me, you need to! She shares everyday tips about how to grow as a blogger and provides a different approach to a lot of the dilemmas we face as bloggers. Check it out here!

2. From Wendy on Instagram Algorithm - With our beloved Instagram acting all crazy with algorithm changes, I made it a point to ask Wendy how she has been dealing with these changes. She went on to explain that this is impacting everyone big and small, so it's important to stay current with what type of content the algorithm favors. Instagram is starting to favor video and Instagram stories, so rather than posting something to Snapchat, maybe add that video to you Insta story next time!

3. From Daniella on working with brands - Hearing from Daniella was super helpful seeing as she is on the opposite side of the table as bloggers. She is the brand looking to work with

influencer. One piece of advice that really resonated was work with brands that you already love and wear. Bauble Bar only works with influencers that already wear the product allowing for natural content creation. If you are having trouble finding collaborations, invest in pieces from brands you love and make sure to tag them in all of your content. Maybe even reach out with examples of content featuring their items!

4. From Marianna and Wendy on equipment - Be smart about how you spend your money on new equipment! Don't get me (or them) wrong, it's SO important to reinvest in yourself, but make sure you are doing it in a cost efficient way. Both Marianna and Wendy had plenty of stories about how many cameras and lenses they went through as they were coming up, but they both concluded that it is way smarter to rent equipment first, see what works for you and then make purchases based on that. Also, it is 20% about the camera/equipment and 80% about knowing how to change the settings in the camera and editing skills! 

5. From Daniella, Marianna and Wendy on getting paid - When you're working your way up the blogging ladder, it's difficult to know when to ask for payment for your content creation. All three touched on how it's important to narrow down what brands you truly love and want to work for. Even if you aren't getting paid, but yoou get to work with a brand you love, it may be worth it to help build out your portfolio. You want to build relationships with these brands so you can do more than one MEANINGFUL campaign. Make sure you aren't money driven starting off and place value on the relationships over the payment.

Lapel Coat + Vinyl Pants

Sweater: H&MCoat: SheInPants: H&MShoes: & Other Stories (Similar here) / Sunglasses: DiorBag: Express

The Look

A long lapel coat is a must for late fall/winter! I love them because they can be thrown over literally everything, giving your look an effortless feel. I normally like to wear mine with a chunky scarf, but decided not to this time around to give these vinyl pants the spotlight. Long coats work as a great layering option because they always complement whether you are looking to do a monochrome look or color block look. I often like to wear all grey with this coat, but throwing a bold color under there would have worked as well! This coat has a great street style fit and classic look all in one, which is why you must find one if you haven’t already! Asos and Topshop often. Have great options!

Moving on to the pants. I had been very interested in the whole vinyl craze leading up to this shoot, so I was super excited to share my experience with them in a post. To say the least, they are epic! I love the shine and focal point they create even when wearing g all neutral colors. They are super cool if you are ok with a few interested stares. One recommendation I have is to make sure that you find a pair that don’t make noise as you walk. The ones I’m wearing make a slight noise when I walk, so definitely don’t skimp out on price as you need to pay for the material quality. I know Topshop has a very popular pair, which I have linked above!

I bought these & Other Stories slip on shoes about 3 years ago and sort of put them to the side after one use. I’m so glad I didn’t get rid of them and that they are in perfect condition because I’m OBSESSED with them now! They are all leather with studding on the top, which honestly is what sold me. They take inspiration from men’s dress shoes, but the pointed toe and smoothness of the leather are what make them more feminine. I linked a few similar ones since these are course out of stock now! 

As for accessories, I went with my Dior So Real sunglasses, which I’l have forever. They are like art to me (love the brow bar)! I’ve wanted an Acne scarf for a while, but I accidentally came across a similar version at Free People and it’s been a staple ever since. This scarf is so soft and amazing for the price. Now is the time to start eyeing what you are going to jump on during those Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales!
