It Item



Last August I posted Coat Dilemma where I pondered the four coat styles I was considering for fall. The Isabel Marant jacket above was included, but I ultimately passed on it– too expensive and impractical for running-around. Fast-forward to an email I received last Friday offering 15% off final sale markdowns. I could not believe this jacket was still out there, and at 60% off it’s original price, I felt like I had won the fashion lottery.

Although the thermometer reads 50° today, it’s still very much winter in NYC (more snow coming this week). And with all the fur on the FW14 runways, next fall I will be thankful I snapped up this jacket.

  • I think you will love that jacket. These fun purchases are what makes the long winter tolerable. And it’s been one long winter. Enjoy that jacket. It’s gorgeous. I’m jealous! ( your black one ain’t bad either !)

  • Molly, It’s from La Garconne and I’m sure it was the last one, but every furrier and department store has deeply discounted fur coats right now.

  • Great score on this jacket! I love your style- can you please show us how you plan to wear it? Maybe a few different options? Thanks for being so inspirational!

  • Very cool! And you’ll be able to pass it on to your daughters one day! Who was the email from? It seems like I get so many emails in my inbox – I don’t pay attention. I need to do a serious clean-up and focus on the ones that are important.

  • Thanks Preston! I found a similar style at Prada today. However, it was “Eco-fur”! Not sure I won’t look like a stuffed animal. Love your posts! I have followed you since the beginning.

  • Good for you for embracing fur! it is God’s gift to humanity in the northern hemisphere, and the most ecologically smart purchase I can think of–like leather, when properly cared for, it lasts forever. Unlike the ‘disposable clothes’ on the market today, this coat will never wear out, and one day your daughters can give it a whole new spin. Love it!
