good things come to those who wait...
while out shopping the other day, i tried on the perfect trench. normally i don't gravitate towards the belted coat because they always made me feel a little more puff and tough than i like. but this one was different. sophisticated. it had a soft cotton sateen finish. button down with large cuffs. and delicious princess seams made me want to walk out of the store wearing it right then and there. i felt like katherine kepburn or coco chanel, so tailored but so comfortable and not even trying. if i had my pajamas on underneath i would have had a nice silhouette. but...i left the ivory beauty there. in the store. with hopes of clearance to come around soon. though a coat like that is hard to come by, i'm a die-hard deal girl. i have no snobbery towards wearing certain labels, it's the specific item that beckons me to buy. but only if it's a tag sale item.
