The New Coat

By popular demand, here are photos of THE COAT!

I'm going to a fashion show tonight! I'm excited, because I can wear my new, $39.00 (originally $144.00), grey wool coat with the plaid taffeta lining (it's still cold here!)

...which I'm going to wear as a blazer, not an overcoat.
It looks interesting from all sides

even the back!

Thanks for asking.

Ooh, Karen, the coat is very retro in a modern way! I love your shoes, too. Thanks for sharing!

GIRL, you are rockin' that coat as well as the leggings and the cute top. Just perfect. WOWZA. You are too cute for words....I suppose Greg loves that other MEN and women are gazing at you???? You are so pretty....I don't think you even realize. I hope you had a great time at your event.
Hugs, Suz.

Gorgeous and very inspiring for me- you are so slim, and that is how I want to be at the end of my diet!

Gorgeous! I had to laugh when I thought about you describing it as "very European" - I now know exactly what you mean! Three-quarter length sleeves are in all over here - very Carla Bruni-Sarkozy! Nothing quite like a good bargain!

I really enjoyed your post about the walk - I miss the sea so much - I used to live in Dublin very close to the coast, but now totally landlocked...

Ack! The cuteness! It's overpowering!

The combo of the leggings, top, THE SHOES and coat are spot on ... you look so slim and sophisticated. They suit you so well -- not everyone could pull that look off with such flair.

Fierce and fabulous, dahling!

Oh - I'm trying to contain my jealousy. Now that my paper is done I am going back to your post about starting over when taking care of your body and am going to focus on that for a while. The coat is fantastic.

absolutely adorable -- and perfect for you. I, on the other hand, amazon that I am, would look ridiculous in this!

Maggie said...

Look at you!!! Beautiful! Love the coat! What a nice treat for yourself.

I love the coat! I have a bit of a coat fetish actually. Coats and purses and shoes and...

Karen, you are 'effing HAWT! You go girl with your tiny, tight, sexy self! The coat is rockin', and I agree with Suz, I don't think you realize how gorgeous you are.

Ok, I'd better stop gushing before Ed thinks I'm going to leave him to bat for the other PRETTIER team.....ha!

Adorable, Karen! You are so petite - it looks great on you.

Karen, could I ask a favor of you? Please go to the following caringbridge website and leave a message for the mother of this dear child? You have such a lovely way with words, and I know you can feel the pain she is going through. Thank you.

That is adorable, and so are You. Barb who comments on my site is from my Blogging Family ... it sounded like she would have come all the way from Colorado to have that desert : )

Oh, My, GOD. I LOVE THAT COAT!!!! I can't believe you got it for $39. Ok, I don't mean to be a copy cat and at least we don't live in the exact same area but...were there any others left!?!?! Seriously that is just gorgeous and too great of a deal to pass up. I may have to head your way for a shopping adventure. You wear it so well too. It will be adorable with skinny cropped jeans and black ballet slipper shoes too. OMG just fabulous!

Smileygirl said...

oh and I also LOVE your top too. You have a great ensemble and the coat ties it all together. LOVE IT ALL!
