Update: Current Coat Conditions

Have you seen the MSN's animated weather maps? Perhaps it will explain my recent focus on coats.

I said, concerning my coat wardrobe, that I was using a black puffy down coat, until I found an ordinary quilted down jacket in a better color. What I didn't anticipate was a friend not having a coat at all. In obedience to Luke 3:11 I took the coat to her house today. I have others.

For spring, if it were in my color palette (NOT BLACK), I'd consider a coat like Agathe's blue leather trench at Style Bytes. Seems perfectly functional to me!

Now I want a new coat. Thanks a lot. :-) Actually, I realized during this coat discussion that I've been wearing my "nice" coat for 20 years! I don't suppose one ever wears out a dress coat.....

So, when is the best time to buy a coat? Do you think they'll go 50% off after Christmas, and when is the latest for clearance sales with good selection? I want a 3/4 or knee-length wool I think. Boden has a great apple green one that I would just love. I'm thinking apple green, black, or charcoal (nice softer alternative to black for me).

That's probably why I favor wool coats -- they just don't wear out.

I noticed that alot of places (Kohl's and JCPenney, for example) will run them 50% off before Christmas. I got mine at Macy's a few years ago; I bet they will have a great sale before Christmas too, but it may be only a one-night thing. (This post is about how I got mine, just before the swimsuits came out.)

All those colors are good choices. The black one should be easy to find and charcoal is a wonderful alternative for many people. You could pray about it, and set a price, and then if you find the apple green one for that price ...
