You can't miss me in the streets of London these days. For one I think I am the only one wearing a bright red ski coat. Fortunately, I am easy mark for my teenagers who have lost their Mom yet again in the January sales. The trusted Aussie Akubra is my snow/rain hat of choice. In fact, it is still wet from this mornings excursion. My two possum hats from New Zealand have been a dream come true for these long outings around the city and thru the woods. My kids laugh but I am warm! My black suede gloves which fit perfectly and my trusty red plaid scarf from somewhere in the Scottish Highlands are tried and true. This is all fine and dandy until I have to dress up to go somewhere. This is where my troubles begin. I need to find a winter coat before the season is over.
My dream winter coat would be one of these....
I would even wear the red lipstick if I had a coat in this colour...dream colour!
A swing coat? Yes, if I keep eating these heavy winter meals...
Donna Karan, love the colour, love the fur, love the belt.
Max Mara, I am sure I had something like this in the 80's..love it!
Max Mara, yes, black again and a belt...still love it!
Ok, truth be told, I would be quite happy with this Eddie Bauer coat and a high collar. Yes, I know...it is black. I could add all of my assorted accessories and still be warm and happy. For now Max Mara and Donna Karan will have to stay in my dreams.
