A New Coat


Have I mentioned my coat obsession? I am sure that I have at one time or another. My mom and now my beau can vouch for my slightly massive coat collection. I firmly believe a gal can NEVER have too many accessories, this includes shoes, handbags, jewelry, and of course coats!

Anyways, last Thursday on one of my weekly trips to my favorite thrift store, my beau sorta found this coat and I just had to have it. He had pulled the coat in front of it to see if I liked that one and then I saw this one. Its a Pendleton and feels like it is brand new. The wool is crisp and has no flaws. It has a cute square collar and the matching belt to boot. I love that it is red and green plain, something I do not have amongst my coat collection. The best part was the price -- only $22. I know that might seem a little steep for a thrift store, but this thrift is one of those "knows what they have" kinda places. The only plus to this is that they ALWAYS have vintage and on Thursdays it's student day where students with an ID get 25% off their total purchase. Needless to say, I am quite smitten with this purchase!! :)

Tonight and into tomorrow morning Michigan is expecting quite the snow storm; 10-15+ inches of snow. I am hoping for a snow day for Wednesday so the beau and I can make waffles and lay around in our p.j.s watching old movies. He already has the day off, lucky him!

Love this coat! I've got a similar obsession! We're getting that same snow storm tonight. Yay for "snowed in" pj parties!

We're preparing for the storm here too.. supposedly Chicago may get 12-20". WTF?

Anyway, I did a double take with your Pendleton because I swear I have a Pendleton with the exact same fabric, though slightly different style. Too funny! I am a coat fiend too. I think we're coat twins, since I also recently picked up a navy coat with a fur collar similar to one I saw you in on another post. LOL

I LOVE IT!! I've been obsessed with plaid this year and a vintage plaid coat? Well, that's just as good as it gets! Looks darling on you!

That is a sweet coat, Emily. Your pictures at the Redford are nice, too. Love you, Mom
