W E A R I N G / See Through Coat

Have been eyeing this long, matte, plastic coat for -literally- years. But for some reason, every time I go into a Muji I become completely obsessed by all the stationary and forget about the rain coat. While visiting my mom in Germany last week, I made a special stop at their Dusseldorf store to finally pick it up. The rainy weather made sure I didn't forget about it this time.

Though I'm not only wearing it specifically for the weather it was made for as you can see, I like how the futuristic frosted plastic adds a bit of high tech to a simple jeans and sweatshirt and creates so much visual depth. One honest little negative point on it though; after using it a couple of times the plastic becomes scratched and wrinkled and doesn't stay as smooth as when it was fresh out of the package.

An entirely different subject; the rare winter sun. So lucky to have caught a glimpse of it. The light at this time of year is so different because of the low position of the sun; magical colorful sunsets, warm light and elongated shadows.
rain coat: Muji
jeans: Acne
mock neck sweatshirt: Uniqlo
heels: Tibi

Honestly, I don't think many people other than yourself could wear this & not look like a walking plastic bag but you made it work.

Oh Muji, geweldige winkel is dat! Inderdaad, ik had deze jas ook nog niet eerder gezien omdat ik zelf ook altijd direct naar de kantoorartikelen ren. De jas is echt so you!
With love,

Joy

may I ask which size did you get?

@dustUP
For sure, I got size small, which was still quite big, and cut the sleeves to the right length

Ik vind het winterse zonnetje ook heerlijk, maar die schoentjes zouden me nu iets te koud zijn. De jas is top natuurlijk, en houd nog lekker de wind tegen ook!

Lovely! What a great piece to add to your wardrobe. The problem with outwear is that it covers up all the fun things going on with the outfit underneath the coat. This coat is a great way to circumvent that issue!

Was gonna get that raincoat then I read your review and decided not to. It looks great though!

this looks very cool on you! i like how you styled it. i've found similar coats in the camping section of big box retailers, have you tried that? they're pretty durable...also have you seen the silver emergency space blankets? i think you would like them too! x

This used to be my dream coat... actually, maybe it still is! When I was in primary school my best friend had a Barbie that came with a coat just like this. I thought it was so cool. So cool!
