My dearest coat.

From the minute I saw you on the rack at Old Navy I knew I had to have you. Your greenness just called to me! I held you, I put you back on the rack, five minutes later I was holding you again contemplating just buying you then instead of putting you on a Christmas list. I just had to have you. I mean really you were just taunting me really.



I mean you just scream EAST COAST WINTER MUST HAVE! and I love east coast winter fashion (I swear I own more cute coats now than I ever did in my four years in Ohio, it's ridiculous).

So yes after thirty minutes of convincing myself I should own you (and after I bought stuff for other people to make myself feel better) I walked on up to the checkout and said "Merry Christmas to ME!" because you were all mine and you are glorious!



So coat, thank you for being so green and fabulous and awesome and ah! I really love you.



Love,
A girl with a mild coat obsession that could partially be blamed on Style Savvy and partially blamed on the fact that coats are awesome and when it's below 50 in LA it's CHILLY and coats need scarves and scarves are awesome too.



happy weekend!

I bought myself a new turquoise coat for Christmas too! And I did the same exact thing - picked it up, decided to wait, then changed my mind after several minutes and decided to buy it, and I don't regret it at all!

Did you see the cute pink magenta one at Old Navy? I almost got it!

I did the EXACT same thing when I was in Old Navy the other day!! I love this green coat! I so want to buy it and seeing you with it makes me want it even more. Hubby bought me that white one but you know what? I'm taking it back to get the green one.. I love it and have to have it. Do you love it after wearing it?

as someone who owns several coats (8 I think), it's a great buy.

Is that your favorite colour?

Sum said...

You look so pretty in your coat! I love coats and wish I had more of them! I really should own more since it gets so cold in Utah.

I have a green coat and to this day I would have pined over it had I not made the big purchase at Marshalls. Works faboolooos with us brunettes!

Andhari said...

That is cuuuuttte. I'm never usually fond of anything green but that is SERIOUSLY cute. Sweet purchase!

EP said...

CUTE!

Also? I'm thankful I am not the only person who has a slight coat obsession. I have SO MANY light coats and am going to have to purchase some warmer ones now I live in TN again. Have any recommendations of cute ones you've seen?

Andrea said...

Oh that's a great coat! I have a coat fetish, too. We should definitely plan some outings where we get to wear our coats..
