Mandarin

I've been a fan of wearing pieces from my closet that feature the Mandarin collar as of late, its done in a way that allows easy sophistication when thrown together with just about anything. I really didn't think I'd wear this jacket on any other occasion apart from Chinese New Year, but the dramatic purple and gorgeous frog fastenings made me think twice about only wearing it once a year.
