I had a big, exciting weekend on the shopping front, ya’ll! The most notable purchase was a new coat :) It is the ombre jacket from J.Crew, which unfortunately appears to be sold out now. I guess I’ll have to take my own photo of it to post on here for all the world to see… don’t hold your breath waiting though!
Backstory: I have lusted over this coat (Let’s call it “The Ombre Coat of Desire”) ever since it made it’s debut online. Recently, an opportunity arose for me to purchase The Ombre Coat of Desire at a “reasonable” price, so I attempted to do just that. After a two-week saga ensued, I finally brought my baby home this past Saturday. I was beyond elated to finally own The Ombre Coat of Desire and to be able to wear it out that night. Of course something (or two things) had to go haywire though. First instance of haywire: when I got to the restaurant with my girlfriends, and the host who seated us offered to take our coats, I gave him specific instructions to treat my coat with extra care. He complied and dutifully put all of our coats in the office instead of on the common coat hooks right next to the entrance, where it would be much too easy for a thief to have his/her way. This was very nice and I was extremely please with both the kind young gentleman and myself, until he brought our coats back. It was then that I realized I had left the price tag on my brand new Ombre Coat of Desire. Ugh, tacky! Who wants to take a bet that the kind young gentleman thought I instructed him to take great care with The Ombre Coat of Desire because I needed to run back to J.Crew the next day to return it in pristine condition after a one-night joy ride? So embarrased.
Second instance of haywire-ness? A button fell off. SERIOUSLY? I have nothing else to say about my Ombre Coat of Desire. Except that I still think it’s beautiful.
So, my other purchases…
The Wolford Hot Dot Tights!! Have you seen these? They are the best tights ever.
Lastly, and unfortunately this is another item I’m going to have to photograph myself if you guys are gonna get to see it, I found an awesome long-sleeved Missoni shirt at a second-hand store here in SF. Its pretty big (size L), but it fits in that cool, oversized way. Yeah. Cool. Oversized.
The best thing about these three items is that I threw together a really impromptu outfit for Saturday night incorporating all of them! It was tres chic, and even the taxi cab driver liked it…That doesn’t say much, does it?
I hope you all had equally exciting purchases this weekend! Yey, consumerism!
