In The Details

This Isabel Marant coat called to me from the runway.  The red piping was screaming my name quite loudly, in fact.  But I resisted, because, well, how many coats does a gal need?

The answer, when you live in San Francisco: quite a lot.  Because it almost never gets hot here, you’re chilly most of the time.  It’s been described by some as one year-long season called “perpetual Fall.”  This is an advantage in at least one way: coat buying.  So when I realized just how much I’d wear it, I gave in to the beckoning of the fire engine red piping and lining, as well as its gold starburst buttons.

I have not regretted it.  And, as the holidays approach, it’s even more fun to inject red into one’s outfits.  Maybe even a little green and plaid thrown in, for good measure.

Happy Tuesday!

  • Love the coat and so true about SF weather! I have so many coats and layering pieces from when I lived up there.

      You can never have enough layering options in SF. Are you warm all the time in LA? That must be fun!!
