The Sartorialist
The title is not sticking a hundred per cent to the truth (after all there is a golden coloured bag peeking from under the coat). But once I have gotten over the fact how lovely this shot was, I couldn’t help myself but focus on the colour combination. Putting an outfit together by mixing red, white and blue means that one runs automatically and very dangerously close to the fine line of becoming an impersonated flag. In this case the danger has been elegantly avoided and yet. I am not quite sure if I will y remain an admirer from afar or an active part of this particular tricolour movement.

So pretty: the navy kimono coat by Haider Ackermann. The spring 2013 has so many beautiful pieces one can’t help but swoon over…
If you feel like online window shopping, I can highly recommend Département Féminin. It has such a wonderful selection of designer pieces. Thank you, Audrey for reminding me that a new visit was in order.

A coat is a coat is…a coat…is a…coat. That is not my attempt of reaching a philosophical break-through ladies and gentleman. That is in fact the tune which sets in by mid January. Every single year.

On the first chilly day I reach with a smile for my winter coat. „Long time no see, my friend“ is exactly what is crossing my mind when I do that. And then, for quite some while actually, I enjoy his company. By December we have become, once again, inseparable. BFFs really (sorry about that…couldn’t resist). Every single outing, every winter stroll is done in mutual company. Bliss.

Too much of a good thing can be wonderful stated Mae West. Unfortunately that does not cover everything in life. Once the new year has really kicked off (or the realisation of it kicked in), I start to get a little bit bored. It is just a question of time and the „little“ will be replaced gradually by „really“. Hello Winter Sales! Yes, they become by that time nothing short of irresistible.

Long story short. Here is the thing with winter coats: I do think that we all should have about three different versions in our closet. At least. Take or give. But three would be realistically a good number to take us through the cold months, right? Not only to keep us nice and warm, but also to provide some change when days seem practically melt seamlessly into each other. It is nice to have options. Especially when the weather really starts to do nothing but annoy us, when we are starting to get impatient and wait for the first signs of spring.

Now the question is: which three winter coats would make the cut? And how does the harsh reality look like? More about that tomorrow…

Thanks to Joanna, I just discovered the beauty of navy nail polish. Doesn’t it look stunning, especially in combination with khaki, blue and grey? Personally I’m not tempted by nails colours such as green and blue. But this shade might have won me over.
