|Tweed Faux Fur Collar Coat -- $89 (another price cut!)|
I've had this particular item, a gorgeous tweed coat with a luxe faux fur collar, on my list for over a year. I first spotted it on Le Catch and I loved it immediately. Quietly glamorous, modern but timeless....yum. At $170, it isn't really a budget-buster (especially since the cost per wear on a good coat should be pretty low), but I was hoping to catch it on sale. Last year came and went and I never saw the price drop, so I was glad to see it reappear this year. Still $170, and for some reason I just never felt ready to pull the trigger.
And like a magical sign from heaven, I stumbled upon a sale...a great sale! At around 11:45 on New Year's Eve, just minutes before my self-imposed January shopping ban was about to start, I decided to take a quick look online to see if I could catch an after-Christmas sale (because sometimes the best NYE plans involve watching The Twilight Zone marathon and screwing around online, right?). Between the sale and a pop-up code for an additional 20% off with free shipping, I was able to score my dream coat for just under $100!
When it arrived, I couldn't believe that I loved it even more than I hoped. The tweed is gray and this incredibly beautiful navy blue, giving it a richer tone than a traditional gray/black combo. And the fur collar is removable! So I'll have a fur collar that I can wear with other looks (I'd been eyeing a similar collar at Anthropologie all winter), and I'll also have a simple tweed coat perfect for almost any occasion.
This coat would be great with party clothes and other dressed up looks, but I kind of like the idea of wearing it with a more casual "Saturday night at the bar with friends" look.
I mean, damn. I want to wear that outfit every day!
Confession: I am wearing this coat right now. Over my pajamas. It looks amazing.
Not sure when it will be cold enough to justify pulling out this beauty, but I know I'll be turning heads and feeling like a million bucks!
