There isn’t much of a winter in Dallas & when we do get some winter weather it usually doesn’t last long. This year is quite the exception! Because coats are a bit of an investment, we try to keep our coat purchases in black, grey or cream, so we can wear them with a lot of options. A few years ago, we found this coat at Neiman’s Last Call sale and we broke that “rule” (they’re meant to be broken, right?!). It’s definitely outside our usual guidelines for a coat – and we had to think hard about it – but we haven’t regretted it once since purchasing. We would be kicking ourselves if we hadn’t! The embellishment of the studs, zipper touches and ruffle placket make this more than just a coat – it’s an accessory!
