After this past weekend when it was 30 degrees again, I was convinced that winter definitely was not coming. However when I woke up this morning I was in for a shock as it was absolutely freezing and in the single digits – which was really the last thing I was expecting! So you can imagine how excited I was to finally, reach for this fabulous coat. This coat was another one of those ebay epiphanies I have talked about before – something that was sold out every where for a long time, that suddenly appeared out of the blue when I was least expecting it, causing me to get a little over excited and freak out. I promised myself I wouldn’t get my hopes up about it being real, and that I would probably soon get a message from the seller telling me that it had actually sold out (this has happened to me many times before…) so when it arrived I was damn near ecstatic.
When it comes to rating how warm a coat is, I am no expert to be honest, but I was definitely pretty cold this morning waiting for the train. So while the coat on its own isn’t terribly warm (I was wearing a rayon dress underneath though) I’m sure it would be a lot better if worn with a few layers underneath, rather than just a dress. That said, this is probably one of the most glamorous items of clothing I own and I do feel pretty fabulous wearing it out!
Much as I was just starting to enjoy winter and blogging cold weather appropriate outfits, I am off to Moscow on Saturday morning so once I get there I will be blogging summer outfits all over again. A bit crazy, but this is just pretty typical for me! I will be visiting my family for two months and then I will be back at the end of July where it will be back to dressing for winter again…so I apologize in advance for how erratic things are about to become!
