I’m Wearing: Big Black Boots Sans Old Suitcase

I’m pretending so hard that it’s nice out. I’m really trying!

That being said, I still bring a cardigan or coat with me wherever I go. It’d be a different story if, when it rained, it was like the midwest or southeast, where the rain is beautiful and warm, and hardly feels like rain at all. Instead, here, it’s shiver-inducing, frigid rain that sucks.

So: excuse to get an awesome raincoat? I think so.

Also an excuse to wear boots, which I adore.

I dislike fitted things, as you can probably tell. Except pants. I love me some tight pants. I mostly just want to wear the fashion equivalent of pajamas for my entire life. Stretchy things and loose things. I love them all.


My face in the above photo really bothers me. Like I should be posing with a product or something.

Back to the raincoat for a second, as this post marks its debut on this blog. If you’re noticing that there is a profuse lack of buttons on this coat, please join me in my sorrow. I snagged this coat from Marshall’s at a steal of a price. Originally, while I was looking at it on the racks, a button came off right in my hand. I brought the coat to the front counter with a devious plan. I said, “I am absolutely happy to buy this, but I wanted to let you know a button came off. Is there a way I could get a few bucks knocked off the price for the damage?” All was going perfectly until the manager came back and said, “Oh, there’s a[n extra] button on the tag – we’re not allowed to discount the price if there are extra buttons. Sorry!” Foiled. So I took the coat home at full [off-]price, and I swear – no more than two days went by and 4 more buttons had fallen off! Blast.

That being said, I adore this coat. The color is wonderful and the black piping makes me swoon. Sewing a few buttons on never hurt anyone who couldn’t sew either, right? ….Right?

Enjoy my epic creepiness. I revel in your discomfort! xo.

  • I too am/(was?) a fan of loose clothing but tight jeans. I’m retaining the fitted jeans but I want to tailor my look a bit. Law school does not welcome the oversized open cardigan. . _ . That coat looks amazing. I will steal it off your back while you revel.

  • Cute little raincoat! I really love your boots though. I wish I had a pair like that. I’m kind of jealous of your cool weather though because it’s horribly hot where I live. I’d like the ability to layer my clothes!

  • I saw your coat and I was like “damn, great looking rain coat… oh wait, I already own it” don’t you love it when you fall in love with something you already have? Also you have great taste by the way. :)

    • Oh awesome!!! I love that! :D Did the buttons fall off of yours, because mine are GONE!
