Ok, so I bought a coat. It’s definitely the nicest winter coat I’ve ever owned. Surely better than the too small $1 rummage sale find I’ve been wearing for the last five years. It’s dressy enough for suits and skirts, but not too fancy for jeans. It’s wool with a satin lining, long enough to save my butt from cold bus stop benches and short enough not to tangle my legs on the bicycle. It’s black with good tailoring which makes it clear I still have a waist. It took me three hours of internet shopping (not fun) to find. It has the all important hood. Only one problem: the hood is trimmed in fox fur. Real, honest, fox fur dyed black.
I bought it anyway and I love it lots.
