Once again I've fallen head over heels in love with wool and velvet sewn so beautifully into this to be adored (how apt) coat. In fact, I've fallen head over heels for their whole AW09 collection.
I'm not promising or anything but I am going to try my upmost hardest not to buy any more coats this winter because The Coat and I are just made for eachother. And this is why:
Does the coat look as if a Victorian child might have worn it? Yes!
Is the coat worthy of Blair Waldorf? Um..YES!
And most important of all. Do I think Zooey Deschanel would wear the coat? Without a doubt!
The Coat and I will spend the long cold winter delicately sipping hot chocolate (being extra careful not to spill. This baby is dry clean only!) and strolling through the park, at dusk, while snow begins to fall. Really, its going to be beautiful.
For now The Coat is hanging in my wardrobe on a padded hanger, inside a garment bag impatiently waiting for the first cold spell. Well, it would be if I could bear to let it out of my sight.
All I need now is the perfect hat and boots and mittens...Oh dear!
