I realize how this can be an overstatement. The best purchase I’ve made this season. But I can see into the future and tell you that, it is in fact, the best purchase. It wasn’t an impulse but a necessity and, like I’ve said before, I’m giving my purchases time and thought. What happened was, I saw this coat a few months ago. It was still scolding hot outside, but kept it under my radar. Sometimes, maybe once a week, I would browse over Nanushka’s website to contemplate it from a far.
Then Black Friday rolled around, and the price dropped. Not a lot, so it wasn’t enough for me to pull the trigger. I had it on my wishlist and the next day, got a notification saying it was sold out. In total honesty, I freaked out a little inside, but no biggy. But just two days later, another notification popped and the coat was available again. At an even more discounted price. It was instant and, since I’m telling you the whole story, there’s more to it.
As soon as it arrived, I tore the package apart to gaze upon the beautiful, hound-stood, wool and silk piece of heaven. Of course I immediately put it on and felt a grip of disappointment through my spine. I thought it was too oversized. Truth be told, I was feeling bloated, swollen and any other adjectives you might think of. Very steadily, I hung the coat behind my bedroom door and ran to my computer to see if I could exchange for a smaller size.
Drumrolls. It was sold out. In every single size. So I let it cool for a few days and by the time I tried it on again, I had a different feeling. I felt good, fitted, cozy, comfortable and happy. I messaged one of my best friends with a few pictures of said coat on me and she said it looked amazing. A wave of content flooded me and I was happy again. So I started wearing the coat and, it is indeed the best purchase I’ve made this season.
It’s been 3 weeks since I got it and it’s safe to say I’ve worn it every-single-day. Even if I’m just walking Poppy, going to the supermarket or for coffee. It’s oversized enough to fit another coat under it, large knits and anything else. My fall uniform was built under this coat, and I’m sticking to it until it’s warm again.
