Hey, everyone! How are you all doing? I am fab. :) Had a bit of a time last week between all the festivities, recovering, and that special "lady time," but all I needed was an overabundance of wine and some really understanding (REALLY understanding) family members and some sleep and I feel just a bit better this week. Plus the presents...somehow I lucked out this year and received some truly unique and exactly right gifts this year. That definitely helped with my mood. LOL.
(Christmas post is later on...right now I want to get some review posts out of the way!)
First up is a delightful little coat called the Double Cloth BonBon Coat by J. Crew. I own so many coats, it is true, but I believe that the weather here in Northern Virginia actually calls for many different types of coats as we see it all from around early November to late April. I actually have a coat now for all sorts of occasions, rainy and cold, rainy and warm, snowy and cold, snowy and REALLY cold, just plain cold, mild, cold, windy and cold, must be dressy coat even though it is cold, etc., etc. LOL.
Seriously, though. I sold a few coats recently (including a pretty velvet Boden one and the Shipley coat from a few years back) to make room for this Bon Bon. I had been eyeing the Bon Bon in torch orange as it so reminded me of the orange coat that Audrey Hepburn wore in Breakfast at Tiffany's, but at its original price of $325, I definitely said, "No way, Jose."
Then came the amazing coat sale that J. Crew does every year. They usually take 30% off and are done with it. But...here's the awesomeness...if you have a J. Crew card, you could then use a specialized code given to you, along with your card and get an additional 30% off. So, guess what? I said "bonjour" to the bon bon.
And here it is...
From the side. The collar isn't quite Bella pretty, but it does the job of being just different enough. This color is "torch orange," btw, not "spicy russett," which was a similar color from the early fall.
Talk with you all soon. :)
