I was shopping with friends the other day and one of them looked at me and laughed because I had about 3 coats on my arm and was trying them on in front of the mirror. She said “you are such a coat girl but you never get to wear them in Texas!” Sigh… she is right of course– I have a vast coat collection that has creeped to the closets of two guest bedrooms. Even when I lived in LA I bought multiple coats each season. I just can’t resist a fabulous coat! My latest obsession are Mackage coats; they are structured and gorgeous with amazing details such as leather corset belts and stand up collars. They also have the cutest puffy coats I have ever seen, I’ve always loved puffy coats for New York winters but hate looking like the abominable snowman– Mackage has amazing fitted puffy coats trimmed in fur you’ll look fabulous while staying warm. (Jump for more!)
The brand was created by two childhood best friends and has gained an audience of celebs and fashionistas worldwide in the last few years. Sold at Bloomingdales and Saks or check the Mackage website for a wide selection and and sizes (starting at XXS!) The prices are also reasonable (wool and puffy coats are under $600, fur and shearling average $2200).
