A few weeks ago, I realized that I did not own a proper winter coat. Let me rephrase, I did not own a proper winter coat that fit. The only coat I did own is my first "professional" black wool Anne Klein trench that is floor length, outdated, and happens to be a size 10 (I wear a 4). When I put it on, I look like a homeless member of the Trench Coat Mafia (not exactly the look I am going for).
In a desperate panic, and vowing not to freeze my ass off in my moto jacket and a cocktail dress ever again, I hit the mall last Friday to bite the bullet and buy a respectable [well-fitting] winter dress coat. I narrowed it down to two options and then with the help of my fantastic instagram followers I was able to make a decision, which I do believe it was unanimous...
|Which one would you have picked?|
If you guessed that Tracy Reese's orange Italian wool trench was the winner, then you get a gold star. While less dressy, I felt that it was more tailored, more fun, and overall just more me than the Ellen Tracy option. I am still feeling the itch to invest in a super-dressy coat - maybe black? Super classic? Gah! I could never have enough clothes...ever.
Is it me? Or do you always feel like there is always something you just NEED to buy?
I should have been royalty. I doubt Kate Middleton has these problems...
Here's to hoping you marry a prince and get every coat your little heart desires,
