Does anyone remember seeing this buffalo check coat at The Loft last winter? It has a crew neck with no collar and was sold with a big black belt. Anyone? Oh, and it was also $179.
Well, I liked it then, but let it pass since it was kind of out of my price point.
Disclaimer: I HATE buying coats. We have awful winters and I always feel like it's so much money that I have no choice but to dump into a coat for my least favorite season. Anyway...
So, I did really like the coat, I just didn't really like the idea of so much of shopping budget going for a 3/4 length coat. BUT... I would TOTALLY pay $4 for it at Goodwill. And that I did.
After I brought this beauty home, it just sat there crying for a furry friend. I knew it had to be paired with a fur collar or scarf and what do you think my mom showed up with the next day? This vintage fur collar, most likely belonging to one of my late grandmothers. It was destiny.
I had this outfit in my mind the other night and was really excited for today just so I could wear it. Since Fridays are spent running around town to odd jobs and client meetings, layers and comfort are key. This was the perfect combination for all the hustling and bustling I had in store today.
The only bad thing is that I wore a pair of ped-like socks instead of normal socks and spent the entire day pulling them up over my heels. Sooooo annoying!
