The Unnecessary Coat

I love coats and jackets.

I have no idea why, I just think they look pretty and polished and are just the right thing to complete an outfit. Peacoats are an especial favorite.

And with this love of coats, I am reminded for the umpteenth time that I live in the wrong damn geographical area.

You see, there is currently this very lovely wool swing coat that used to be $170.00 and is now a mere $70.00! I am horrible at math and much too lazy to figure the actual percentage of savings. But people, that's a lot of money off! I don't know exactly how much, but it's a lot! And it's even in my size!

However, in good conscience I have to ask myself exactly how often I would wear said wool coat.

Unfortunately for me, the answer is perhaps a total of 20 or so days out of the year.

I love me a pea coat but have not found one in my size (that does not cost an arm and a leg) since I had to get rid of my last one (which I got at a thrift store). Of course here in Kansas one would be very useful for the winter.

Well made and all, timeless and such, you'll wear it for 10 years (or so). That's 200 days. That's about 35 cents a day. Seems reasonable.

I found a lovely wool coat you might like, it was on sale, Vera Wang, I loved it from across the store.
Then I tried it on and well, it had SHORT sleeves! WTF, I did know this was in style, but I didn't think it would be on this coast.
