I borrowed this lovely coat from one of my best friends that visited RVA recently. This piece jived with my all black wardrobe seamlessly and the designer reminded me of what my name almost was: Eileen. My mom loves the name Eileen. I can’t see myself as anything other than a Catherine after 27 years of identifying with this name, but every time I hear “C’mon Eileen” by Dexys Midnight Runners I can’t help but wonder. A name is just a name, but I love it when life accidentally reminds you of all the decisions, small and large, that shape who you are today.
P.S I hope you all had a wonderful time ringing in the New Year. Thank you for following along with The Crystal Press + Cathclaire in 2015 and we can’t wait to share with you what 2016 has in store!
