about a coat

Happy almost Thanksgiving to all ye American follow-alongers! 

I love this time of the year for so many reasons (so many non-frivolous reasons) but one of the (more frivolous) reasons is for dressing.

I love getting gussied up for the holidays. And I look forward, unabashedly, to it all year long. I start squirelling things away for the next round of holidays the second one round wraps up. I might even have a tiny section in my closet dedicated to things in-waiting for the season. I didn't do this on purpose. But I noticed it's happened. But, look -- give me a hefty helping of tulle, with a side of faux fur, a bit of sparkle and lace, coats and scarves and mittens piled in a heap, shoes that clack and point the way into friends' homes (with snow dusting stairs and front doors) and I'm a happy girl. 

Most recently, I have fallen quite madly in love with this burgundy coat. (Do click to see it -- because apparently I'm completely insufficient at showing all the details that are so readily apparent in the stock photos. Oy!) It pairs as nicely with a fit-and-flare party dress as it does one more free-flowing and boho-leaning. It goes with every shoe! Every skirt! Every color and print! What! I don't know how she does it. And to find that kind of versatility in a coat is I think a wholly maddening holy-grail sort of search. But, voila! The mall powers that be were smiling kindly upon me this Friday evening it would seem. I can't wait to give it a turn with all my white dresses (ha!) and floppy hats and boots this holiday season --starting with Thanksgiving, and ending never, because we're in love.
