Wool Moto


It's jacket time! I'm not sure if I should be happy or sad.  I'm sad because that means we are getting further from sun dress and sandals weather.  Yet I'm so happy because I can bring this coat out of the closet again!

I got this beauty at Elie Tahari last winter. I spent time arguing with the sales person about the colors it was available in. I swore that it also came in turquoise, yet he told me " No no no, purple, tan and gold alligator."  While I was taken with the gold alligator, it was about a thousand dollars more than I wanted to spend (seriously).  I decided the purple moto jacket was coming home with me.  I wore it until the temps dropped too low and my butt got cold!

And I was totally right about the turquoise.  I found it at Bloomingdale's a few weeks later!
