So, remember back a ways, when I was telling you about some of my favorite pieces from my own wardrobe, a la Colette Sewing Handbook? I told you about my Hunting Skirt and my Bikes & Top Hats Sorbetto. Well, next up, my favorite Plum Peacoat from Macy's.
I first saw this coat in the Macy's window while strolling down Main St. one early fall afternoon two years ago. I drooled. And then I drooled some more. Then I took my roommate to see the coat in the window. Then I showed the boyfriend. Then I gushed about it some more to my roommate. Then my roommate dragged me into the store, made me try it on, and then made me buy it. True story.
As I mentioned in my last post, the boyfriend (he's so great!) he generously helped me take some photos around town while we were on a nice little saturday afternoon walking date. So, while I show you pictures of the coat, I thought I'd show you a few fun pictures from around my adorable little town. You don't mind, do you?
|Ok, how fantastic are those buttons?!|
|A 'bikes & top hats' underneath for good measure!|
|The boyfriend (who oh so wonderfully took these photos for me!)|
|So hard to get a non-blurry photo when no one is behind the camera!|
|My favorite part of this coat is the second hem! I love how the coat ends, and then 'surprise!' there is another bottom waiting to peek out! (Oh, and I'm standing in front of one of the winery tasting rooms)|
|Our great little candy shop, Brights!|
|The local record store|
So there you have it! My favorite peacoat, and a few little glimpses of my home :)
