Winter Weather Advisory

There *was* snow on the ground yesterday, but it disappeared by the time Derek and I left to run some errands. Today is a different story, snow on the ground and lots of areas in the Southtown's of Buffalo got dumped on! Winter is here. Dun dun dunnnnn!

Since I live in a winter wonderland, I need a good coat. Though there are many that live in my closet, I was looking for a nice black coat to replace my black moto style coat that has a broken zipper (I've taken the coat to a few tailor's that won't replace the zipper or tell me there is nothing wrong with it...there is) Rant alert: Why do coats that are thin as paper with no lining and are made of crap polyester cost an average of $100?! Bah! I need to be warm! 

I turned to searching at my favorite thrift store and scored this beautiful vintage wool and fully lined coat for $14. I had the coat dry cleaned for $11, switched out a broken button and Voila! Add a soft chenille scarf (handmade gift from my sister-in-law) and a thrifted wool beret with my isotoner gloves and I'm ready for this winter thing. 

Bah humbug. This is when I start to hide in the Tiki room and pretend on I'm in a tropical paradise.

  1. Great find with the coat! I hope it will keep you warm all winter. I am not a friend of cold :(

  2. That is a really nice coat. It snowed here and its staying. I woke up to ice this morning :(

  3. That's a great coat and probably constructed a lot better than anything you could buy new.

  4. fabulous. that is the coat I always wanted!

  5. The picture confused me as it looks a lot like an old pic of one of my local friends.

    It is true, most coats are not warm, although I would have thought you would have more warm coats over there where it actually gets cold! It looks great!
