Buffalo plaid bargain

Buffalo plaid belted wool blend coat (size small):  Banana Republic, here
Tropical weight wool pants (size 6 Tall):  Limited Luxe, 2009
Booties:  Enzo Angiolini
Scarf:  Nordstrom Rack
There are few things I love more in life than a great bargain.  I get it from my mom.  It's just such a rush to find an awesome deal, isn't it?  When I was rushing around on Saturday, looking for a black wrap for our dressy event, I popped into Banana Republic.  I had admired this coat for months but since I had already purchased both the metro coat and the slim trench from J.Crew this year, I couldn't justify it. That is until I found one lone one on the sale rack, in my size, marked to 74.97 + an additional 40% off.  Seriously?  I bought this coat, originally priced at $250, for around $45.00.  It made my day!  It feels so soft and cozy too, I was comfortable all day today in the 30 degree weather wearing it.  Also see it on Andrea, one of my fave bloggers, at Tweed and Toile

Hope you're having a great Monday!  Thanks for visiting.


  1. I am so jealous. My store just had a size L. Good thing we don't shop the same store or that coat would have been mine! :)

  2. Oh yay! I am so happy you bought this coat! I bought it myself -- on sale I am happy to say.... though not quite as good as your deal. It is amazing, isn't it?

    Posted about it here:

  3. that is such a gorgeous coat! and what a find!

  4. Yeah I am sort of liking the plaid trend. It has a slightly retro 80s feel to it. What a great deal!
