I'm flying to Salt Lake on February 13th where it will be freezing, so I took stock of my outerwear. I have one leather coat bought for me by an old boyfriend around 1992 and a thin leather jacket with loose buttons and a too small green windbreaker given to me by my niece, so it was with great fear and trepidation that I set out to Macy's to purchase a winter coat.
First I emailed my personal wardrobe consultant Erica who told me pea coats, the color red and plum are in style. Erica can't understand why shopping for clothes for me is like cleaning greasy tile grout, she with her size 2, 5'7" frame that she could hang a pillow case on, accessorize it and skip out to work looking put together. She has never dealt with 5 feet of curves, odd angled cellulite, a missing waist and where the tri-mirror is your mortal enemy.
Here is what I ended up with.
A beautiful 'red' wool coat by Anne Klein for $79.00, regular price $260.00. Ignore the eternal celestial room mirrors banking me.
I wasn't sure about this black and white light weight coat on sale for $22.00.
I sent the above pictures to Erica who gave her stamp of approval.
I hate shopping.
