This is the time to go shopping for coatsAfter all, the sales are on... And the best place the find a really good quality coat at a huge discount is in an outlet sale. Especially when you're looking for a coat that you would never buy at full price. You know, the type of coat you are unlikely to wear very often.
I'm talking about a coat for that annoying in-between weather (when a trench coat is not enough but a warm wool coat is too much), a coat you might wear for a week or two in autumn or spring. And because you rarely wear it, you don't want to spend a fortune on it. So, you either buy it at an outlet or at a sale. And that's exactly what I did.
Of course, I knew exactly what I wanted: a short, lightweight wool coat. More importantly, I wanted something that I didn't already have, something very different from all the coats in my wardrobe (you know, trench coat style, belted; below the knee...). Maybe a pea coat, a cocoon coat, a trapeze coat... Something fun and different. Well, anything, really, as long as it was short, and without a belt, and any colour except blue...
I really suck at shopping...
