CoatsCoatsCoats



I'm getting rid of coats. Thats right. The crazy coat lady will become just the crazy lady. Ok, ok, so I'll still be the crazy hat lady, but I'll get to that collection someday.
At one point I had 23. That was a while ago, I'm afraid to count now. And this cold season I've been paying attention to which ones I actually wear, and which ones I don't. Not to mention how long it takes for me to find a coat or jacket to wear with my outfit each day, because I don't have "basics" I have a bunch of really funky cool, multiple personality coats. Ask Sam how long he waits for me to find a coat after the half hour ordeal of getting dressed, and he'll roll his eyes. So you see, I'm trying to save both time and space, and you my friends get to benefit from my closet purging. So next week there will be a bunch of vintage coats in my shop, and I need you to get them away from me as soon as possible.

In order to let go of so many coats though, I'm going to get one nice, black coat. I know, sounds kind of dull, but trust me, when I find that coat, paired with red lipstick and my giant rhinestone bow brooch, it will be far from dull. Although I must say, I think I've looked at just about every black wool coat on the internet, and nothing pleases me. So, if anyone knows where I can find a black coat, about knee length, with a fitted bodice and sleeves, button up, a-line skirt, with two side pockets and collar (not too wide), let me know. Oh, and not $1,000 like a Burberry one I liked, 'cus that was misleading, it was in the "Sale'' section. And it was one sale, just...not enough. Besides, if I'm going to pay $1,000 for a coat, it shouldn't have plastic buttons. Come on Burberry, spring for some quality buttons.

Wish I had money...

It's hard to find the perfect black coat. I found a great one at JCrew last year. I never shop at JCrew so I was surprised! :o)

23 coats! Maybe that makes you a crazy coat lady, but an awfully glamorous one at that . . .. . I love it. If you have that many, then who needs basics? :)
