On The Catwalk

March 31st, 2009

A while back, you may remember me mentioning Desere and I spending a day together in a city about an hour from here, and how I’d found this simply fabulous coat that I was practically drooling over. It was pricy, at least in the idea of the fact that this coat is really not practical, or one of those timeless classics that is always in style.

This coat is more on the trendy side, funky and whimsical, and very much ME. When I saw it I got VERY excited, because it’s so NOT typical of the things I see here. I’m a colorful kinda girl. I adore color, the more color there is, the better it is in my eyes. I do wear the occasional black, brown, and even grey, but I love brights- always have, always will.

Since I didn’t even pay attention to the brand of the coat, I’d pretty much given up the idea of it, until my friend Bobbi mentioned seeing a coat and collection of this particular designer that she’d fallen in love with. As soon as she mentioned the coat, I knew it was the same coat that I’d fallen in love with, and sure enough, I was right.

Because of that, I now have the designer label and also found out that they have a shop in A’dam, which is less than an hour away. Surpsingly, Marcel loved the coat, and while I don’t think I’m going to buy it, a girl can dream. I’m leaning more towards one of their handbags, which Marcel raised his eyes at, after me buying two Coach bags AND a Fossil bag when we were home for the holidays. He said I ‘need’ a summer coat, I don’t “need” another handbag. He’s right, of course, but that’s beside the point.

This coat is not for everyone, so don’t think you’ll hurt my feelings if you don’t like it. I love it anyway, and I can’t believe I’m considering it, but I am. Luckily, I’m married to a man who has a great love and appreciation of clothes himself, so there isn’t alot that he can say when it comes to that sort of thing.

I don’t ‘need’ it… I really don’t. I never wear a summer coat, but man-oh-man, I sure do love it.

See for yourself!

The Coat I want

 

Isn’t that cuteeee?????   Mom and diddy, I do have a birthday coming up in July.  Not that it’s a hint or anything. haha    They also have a great selection of cute tops that I also fell in love with, and I definitely see one of those in my near future.  They are also colorful, funky and fun, just like the coat.

    I would totally wear that! And I don’t consider it trendy at all. The shape is classic, as are the buttons and sleeves, and it could be a real investment piece that you could wear for years.
    The only problem I would have is that it is such a signature piece and easily recognized, so I’d wear it less than a basic colour.
    I hope you decide to get it.

    Ohhhh!! That coat is totally funky!

    I’d wear it if I lived in a cooler climate, and it did’nt have that high neck collar.

    (I feel confined with things likea that)

    But the coast is niceeeee! :)

    Kate you are a excellent sales person. You talk me into it even more haha..

    I’m going this morning to the actual shop to see what they have. I do love it!

    hehe Bobby, I don’t think it would look very good on you. :P

    Aww Judy- Thank you. I really do love it, but I’m going to see what they have in terms of other coats. I can’t wait to see their shop, I’ve only been in a store that sells their line.

    hehe Dutchy- it’s me isn’t it?
