I got a new coat!
I'm only a little sad about it because my old coat was the best coat EVER. It was the perfect charcoal gray color, the collar was huge, and it had 800 pockets. Sadly, it was also 5 years old and not that warm anymore. Apparently cheap wool wears out.
But as you can see, my new one isn't all that different. It's a lighter color and there are only two pockets, but the overall feel is very similar. Plus the fabric is a higher quality so it should go the distance. The price wasn't too shabby, either:
An extra bonus: it rang up at $117, which, if my math is right, means another 9% off. So if anybody else is in the market for a coat, Macy's has all of them on super clearance right now. And at my store at least, it wasn't too picked over yet.
Let's go in for a close-up:
I don't know the official garment-y terminology, but I love the stitching along the seams and edges. It's two lines of thread instead of one.
For those days when I don't feel like rocking a scarf, I can just button it all the way:
My bad, THIS would be all the way:
|Why even make this possible, Calvin Klein?|
So what'd you do this weekend? Anybody else take advantage of some wintry markdowns? Coats? Boots? Sweaters? Or marvel at the fact that we're already halfway through February? (Seriously, what's up with that?)
