So kittens, my coat that I’ve had for about 6 years, give or take, my long Michael Kors parka has finally gone kaput. It was literally falling apart, forcing me to acquire a new coat. Now I really don’t have the time nor the inclination to trek to Burlington Coat Factory and pick out something suitable so I did the next best thing – I shopped online – Amazon to be specific.
And may I just say that Prime membership is worth it’s weight in Platinum, forget gold. In any case my coat arrived last night, and the boots I ordered arrived the previous Saturday. I love them both and am completely cocooned in warmth. I’m so grateful to be living in this day and age where you have a need or desire and within a few clicks – it arrives at your doorstep. Trust me when I tell you, you don’t need a million to look or feel like a million. In case you’re interested here is the coat I purchased on Amazon – word to the wise, order at least one if not two sizes up – it’s meant to be snug! I’m a large, I ordered a XXL and it fit snugly. One should also note that the fur comes detached. It contains these tiny black loops along the ridge of one side of the fur collar which corresponds to the clear small buttons along the hood attached to the coat. It takes a few minutes and a rather steady hand but all you have to do is loop the small black loops over the clear buttons and voila, you have an instant, luxurious look! The cost of the coat is $70 and the boots $35 – and if you have Prime, need I say more? This kind a’ business here sells itself!
