What is the most you have ever spent on a coat? I love coats because they hide a multitude of sins (As Wendy Williams would say). The best thing about coats is that you can wear a bad outfit but your coat hides it. I am a person that wil spend money on my coats. I have always set a budget of $500, although, I have never spent that much on one. Luckily, I have found some great coats at Ann Taylor Loft, Banana Republic and DKNY all under $300. I have this red DKNY trench coat that I found at Century 21 three years ago for $80 and it retailed for almost $300. I wear this coat to death. I have to constantly take it to the dry cleaners because of the bright red color.
Whenever I put it on, it somehow makes me smile and think everything is going to be okay, who knew a coat could make you feel this way. I also like to think of this coat as my fashion angel because it still fits whenever my weight starts to fluctuate. I could be down 10 pounds in the summer and back up 10 pounds by the time Fall rolls around again.
