All of a sudden, it's fall. A cold, windy fall. Just last week I was still wearing my silver glitter flip flops, and today I had to pull out my black pea coat. In a word: BRRRR.
I'm not even ready to put out bright orange pumpkins and bumpy gourds, let alone start worrying about snow. But, apparently, the seasonal weather says "Ready or not, here I come!" Therefore, this Friday Fashion post is dedicated to beautiful coats and jackets. If I am to be forced to lose feeling in my nose and wish I'd worn some thermal underwear, at least I can look darn good while freezing off my pah-tootie. Enjoy. (And make me some cocoa!)
Stadium-Cloth Winnie Jacket by J. Crew, $245. I mostly love this cropped jacket because of the button closure. So unique! Of course, I could never wear this beautiful, bright color. Blonds don't look good in yellow. It's something I've had to come to terms with. I know you're wondering how I could possibly bear such torture. I guess I'm just that strong of a person.
City Style Military Jacket by New York & Company, $59.95. This might be my favorite (and priced pretty well!). I would feel just a little bit dominatrix in this. A whip or large rifle could complement the jacket nicely. You might have to start calling me "The Chairman..."
Pink Tartan Ruffled Down Puffy Coat by Bloomingdales, $695. Seriously? Ruffles?! This is such a breakthrough in the science of puffy jackets. By this time next year we'll be getting to work via jet-propelled backpacks and eating all our meals in pill form.
Michael Kors Women's Wool Babydoll coat on Overstock.com, $114.99. I have this thing where I want to look adorable all the time. It helps me hide the fact that I have no marketable skills or desirable talents. I think this coat could really help my cause, because it is CUH-YUTE! I think I would have to go red on this one, but the ivory is just divine!
Aeryn Double Breasted Trench Coat from DKNY, $295. Sometimes, you just can't beat a classic, double breasted trench. For the record, if I ever went out in public in one of these, I would not have any clothes on underneath. Not a stitch. I'll just go ahead and leave you with that glorious mental image for this weekend.
