COAT SEASON-YUM!

 
I HAVE NOT BOUGHT A NICE COAT IN A LONG TIME( WELL EXCEPT FOR THE ONE I BOUGHT LAST MONTH). THIS YEAR THE MILITARY COAT IS BACK IN FULL FORCE AND I AM GRABBING AS MUCH OF IT AS I CAN AFFORD!
 
 
 I HAVE WAITED FOR J CREW TO DO A COAT PROMOTION SO I COULD BUY THE
MAJESTY PEACOAT IN NAVY! THEY DO MAKE A GOOD COAT!
 I PLAN ON REPLACING THE BORING NAVY BUTTONS UNDER THE COLLAR FOR BRIGHT GOLD ONES. I JUST LOVE THAT DETAIL.

THEN I HAD TO HAVE A BLACK COAT RIGHT? AND THIS ONE LOOKS SIMILAR TO ONE ,MY GIRL CRUSH, EMMANUELLE ALT WORE YEARS AGO.
I BOUGHT IT BIG FOR A MORE OVERSIZED LOOK.
COAT ZARA



OK, HERE SHE IS AGAIN, EMMANUELLE ALT AND I AM OBSESSED WITH HER
BALMAIN COAT AND HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR A KNOCK OFF FOR A WHILE.
2010 NEVER LOOKED SO GOOD!

IT'S NO BALMAIN BUT I THINK THIS J CREW COAT IS AS CLOSE AS I'M GOING TO GET.
BUT IT DID NOT START OUT THIS WAY! FIRST IT'S FROM 2011 AND I HAD TO FIND ONE ON EBAY AND THEN IT CAME WITH BLACK BUTTONS AND NO BUTTONS ON THE CUFFS.

 SO I MADE MY OWN.
 I PAINTED THE EXISTING BUTTONS WITH METALIC GOLD LEAF PAINT FROM THE CRAFT STORE AND THEN I SOWED ON BUTTONS AT THE CUFFS.
I THINK IT TURNED OUT PRETTY GOOD.
I JUST CAN'T RESIST A GOLD BUTTON!
WELL AT LEAST I'M CONSISTENT.
