Christmas coats.



Today I got to wear my red cape and leopard muff for the first time, and boy did I get some looks on my way to work. Especially from one sour lady driving by, you'd have thought I was flipping her the bird by the look on her face. But it was very warm, and even had neat pockets inside I didn't see before. On my way to work I stopped at the Discovery thrift shop and got a bunch of jewelry for my shop and a pretty sparrow pin for myself. I've been looking for one forever, I guess it's just my week to find what I've been wanting.
My friend and co-worker Jen stopped by and looked darling, I just love that coat, and snatched up a matching hat before leaving. Her mom was sweet enough to snap a picture, we look like Christmas!

Beyond adorable. I'm as jealous as that old lady with the sour face. The muff just soooo makes the cape even more tres chic.

Coat envy! You both look gorgeous. I love your friend's green coat with the pink of her skirt that's just peeking out.

I agree with Hexotica, the lady was undoubtedly jealous. It's weird, isn't it, when people give you a big ol' sneer just because of what you're wearing? I mean, you're not walking around in a shopping bag or with a live leopard stapled to your arms or anything. Weird. I get that a lot too, but usually from teenagers.

Maybe she recognized that cape as her own, and was wondering why she was so willing to give up. And how dare you pull it off so well, too. It never looked that good on her!

Bless her...she needs it! ;)
