'Blow, Blow Thou Winter Wind'


This coat is one of THE best purchases I've ever made on eBay.  It's so warm, it's unbelievable.  So blow winter wind, blow - I am well fortified!

  

Went on a little excursion to the Yves Saint Laurent store to add to my ring collection for Christmas. I couldn't decide between the square or oval arty amethyst ring so I left it up to the bf to choose. Guess I'll find out which one he chose on Christmas morning....yippeee!!








What I'm Wearing:
Coat: Marc Jacobs via eBay - $90.00
Vintage Mink Collar - eBay - $20.00
Vintage Silk Blouse - Etsy - $20
Sequin Skirt - JCrew
                       Orig. Price: $128.00
                        Paid: $98.00
Ugg Rylan Indoor/Outdoor Slippers (an early Xmas Gift)
Coach Metallic Pink Tote
Gloves - JCrew
Necklace - Maslo Designs
YSL Rings

  5. I can't walk on tile floors barefoot (ick!!)
  6. I'm allergic to cherries (sorrow)
  7. I drove around Rome on the back of a moped of a complete Italian stranger (much to the chagrin of my girlfriend who was left behind to keep said Italian's homly friend company)

  50. I have been searching for a coat similar to yours only to realize I live in Snowbird Central and it may not be at my fingertips! But, boy doesn't ebay have everything under the sun to make you spend your entire life savings!! I might look for a fur piece to add to my already dabber winter coat!
