Sunday Styles no. 18

Fashion Week in NYC is nearly upon me and with it, the cold! Eeps! I'm so not ready for that kind of chill. I've become such a weather wimp that the "chilly" evenings of LA have me pulling my parka out. I know. BIGGEST . WIMP . EVER.

So, where am I going with this? I decided to finally purchase a winter coat for the first time in 3 or 4 years. It was time. I love my parka, but I needed an upgrade and I finally caved yesterday. I must say, it might be my favorite coat purchase to date...it's one of those items that make me feel like a grown up.

Big shout-out to the folks at All Saints on Robertson for helping me locate the coat of my dreams in my rightful size. So badly did I want this item that Husband Charles and I made the cross town trek to the All Saints in Santa Monica just to get it.

All I can say is...I'm in love. SWOOOOOOOOON! And to make things even more awesome (yes, they got more awesome if you can believe it) Husband Charles got his first All Saints leather too. (I'm an All Saints leather enthusiast, so yay.) It was a coat kind of Saturday.


Oh, coat, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways!
  1. Beautiful structure that speaks to my Japanese sensibilities (hello, Yohji Yamamoto & Comme des Garçon!)
  2. Luxurious lining - something I'm a crazy person about when it comes to my outerwear
  3. Slim cut & gorgeously draped in all the right places (a.k.a I can wear a bulky sweater under it without looking like a sausage)
  4. Wool blended and not itchy - actually the complete opposite (the feel reminds me of the beautiful coats my mom used to drape on her bed when she would get ready to go out on the town in Manhattan when I was little...the coats I used to try on and twirl around in.)
  5. Awesome hardware
Le sigh. I actually turned to Husband Charles at one point as we walked down the 3rd street promenade and said, "I've been waiting for this coat all my life." He stroked my arm and said, "awwww."
It's like that, people.

So, I'm totally ready to head back to New York! And to the cold, what can I say? Come at me, bro!
Hope everyone has a fantastic Sunday! xo!
