Have you ever wanted something so bad, you’d go to the ends of the earth for it? Although maybe not the ends of the earth, I have been all over Manhattan, which is the center of the universe anyway right? All for a coat. A gorgeous, red coat.
If you haven’t figured it out by now, when I like something – I obsess (currently that would be all things burgundy). Well last fall, I
needed wanted a red peacoat, and after looking for weeks I finally found the perfect one at Zara. Unfortunately it was on size too big. Fortunately, there are seven other Zara’s in NYC. I proceeded to go to three more stores that afternoon on a mission to find that red coat before finally tracking one down. Victory never tasted so sweet.
Red is red hot this season (pun intended), so I couldn’t wait to bust out my coat again for fall. I wanted to have a little bit of monochromatic fun, by pairing my jacket with a matching red skirt. Throwing on a cozy little sweater and plaid scarf was my way of dressing down the look, while still keeping it sophisticated. Who says comfortable can’t be chic?
