After Hurricane Sandy swept through, the temps around here suddenly plummeted into winter coat-wearing weather. FINALLY!
Is it weird that I was super excited for it to be cold again so that I could wear my favorite coat? I don't mean like brisk Fall day-sweatshirt-and-jeans weather, but I mean bundle up weather that involves hats, gloves....and red coats. Are you surprised? I think just about every winter coat I've owned in the past five years has been red.
Did you know that Sarah Jessica Parker made clothes at one point? This is a Bitten by SJP coat that was handed down to me from a family friend. Apparently this line was sold at Steve and Barry's, which is now bankrupt (whoops?) and has not been on shelves since 2009. The clothing line itself got terrible reviews from what I've seen, but I am here to tell you that this is my favorite coat ever. I mean, it's red. Can you really go wrong? Not to mention warm, form-fitting, and just overall fabulous. The coat originally had red buttons, but my mom helped (read: did all the work) with sewing on these black buttons I found at Joann's to give the coat some new life.
I would also like to proclaim my re-found love for jeggings. Are jeggings still cool? I sure hope so, because I'm about to wear the crap out of them again. The jeggings I'm currently wearing may or may not have been ones that didn't fit my hot post-wedding bod last year at this time, but after a year of marriage and baking are now nice and snug again.
Good thing I didn't throw them out! That's not hoarding, it's called being smart.
