WINTER'S WOOL


This is the last post today, I swear.  There was just one last piece of my outfit that I wanted to tell you about.

Last week, I wrote about the newest addition to my winter coat arsenal.  Well, this is last year's major score.  This is an Esprit, military-inspired wool coat that I scored at Ross for $80!  Unfortunately, when I found it, I couldn't commit right away, then when I got home, I had the opposite of buyer's remorse.  Instead, I had why-didn't-I-buyer's remorse.

Once I realized the error of my ways, I sent my husband back to Ross to secure the last coat for me.  But, alas, someone had beat me to it.  Poo!  I immediately started scouring the internet for the same coat, but the cheapest price online was $300!  Talk about insult to injury!

Luckily, I'm as stubborn as they come and wasn't going to give up that easily.  The very next weekend, I drove to the next closest Ross, which was 45 minutes away.  And there, I completely lucked out!  They had ONE left in my size.  See?  If it's meant to be, it will be - but you may still have to work for it!

P.S.  Even better - this coat has a detachable, fur-lined hood!

  1. FABULOUS coat!!! I need a new one so bad, too, and I'm totally P.O.'d that I missed out on a deal for a coat I loved. I'm waiting for it to come around again. Glad you found yours!

  3. I need a winter coat, too. I don't have any! Well, I do have one. It's from when I gained weight. It's ugly and has velcro.

    I'm waiting for the after Christmas sales to get a nice coat.

    I love your hat, too!

  4. I get why didn't I buy it remorse a lot! This coat is so flattering on you. I also love the non-costume version of the Janis Joplin look you've been pulling off lately.

  11. i'm glad you ended up with the coat because it is FAB! it's so nicely tailored. non-buyer's remorse is the worst feeling, so this story gives me hope for some things i've passed up and regretted :)
