Today for What I Wore Wednesday, let’s talk coats…
Back in high school – actually I think it was my freshman year in college – my brother and I got coats for Christmas. Nice warm coats. We headed to the sports store to pick them out, wandered around separately, and eventually emerged – holding the same coat! Yeah, I had gotten it in the mens section, but big and bulky was the thing back then. He wanted me to put it back, but I loved it! I tried digging up an old picture from that Christmas, but no luck. I wore that coat forever – still own it – – here ya go:
So, it wasn’t quite stylish – it’s only now that I realize that 🙂 So a few year ago on black friday, walmart was selling coats for $8 – I figured I was worth $8 and bought a coat that was a little more hip n happenin:
It’s alright, and had I have definitely gotten my $8 worth out of it. But I was thinking that it was time to step up my coat style – at first I just wanted a new $8 walmart coat in white, but they didn’t do the $8 coat thing this year. So I started googling “white puffer coat” and narrowed it down to my dream coat:
So, thoughts on coats?? Do you go big and comfy or snug and stylish??
