Shopping and blogging are two of my favorite hobbies! But I haven’t had time for either lately. My first priority right now is taking care of my sick mother, and rightly so. But today I decided to steal an hour for myself and take a trip to the mall. With limited time, I decided to concentrate on one desired item: a coat.
I had asked my husband for a warm coat for Xmas and I got this totally fabulous Calvin Klein puffer ski jacket that I LOVE!
But I still felt I had room in my wardrobe for a wool coat, something warm, classic, and versatile.
I saw that Macy’s was having a sale on their coats, 50% off most of them, so that’s where I headed.
First I tried on this cute plum Calvin Klein, but wasn’t sure if plum was neutral enough.
This Jason Kole was a steal and cute, but just not quite long enough for my 5’7″ long-waisted frame.
I tried on this London Fog coat and liked it a lot. Red is my favorite color and it even came with it’s own plaid scarf.
Almost love, but not quite. This was their smallest size and it still seemed big on me.
Next, I tried on this adorable BCBG plaid jacket, but again I was looking for something more versatile.
How lovely is this DKNY tweed coat?
But the plaid had hints of plum in it and I just didn’t think it would go with enough of my wardrobe.
I love camel, but this pretty Larry Levine just looked shapeless on me.
Then I found this Larry Levine classic walker coat in my favorite color. Originally $275, it was %50 off + an extra 15% off today.
Hey, red is a neutral to me!
I loved it even more when I got it home ….
And these two curious critics approved as well …
Thanks for taking my quick shopping trip with me, Dolls! Keep an eye out for more looks starring my new coat on Instagram @fashionshouldbefun !
