Have I ever told you how much I hate shopping? I mean, SERIOUSLY hate it. Growing up with a mother who sewed all my clothes......I got spoiled. Stores and all the choices? Stress!! So, I tend to buy things when I am in a panic/dire need, and that is a bad plan! lol
I need a new coat and have for years. 6+ years ago, I spent $25 on clearance at Old Navy and even my boys have commented on the fuzz balls. Now, ladies, that is bad if teenage boys noticed!
So, I decided I wanted a deep purple/eggplant coat - I'm tired of black, gray....since I started wearing bright colors I love, my mood is much improved, I get tons of compliments.....so......
I was in S.teinmart the other day, killing time before an appointment and saw this coat and almost drooled right then and there. Ran over, tried on my size and .........it was THE COAT.

Price - not $25, so I had to think on it. Peck & Peck Collections. Andy wanted to go buy it last night. I waited until today, went to another S.teinmart and they had already sold out! Brand new! Had them scan one left and it was not going to be on sale this big sale weekend, so.........Andy got me the coat at the other store.
It only has the one button and the tie is removable. (I don't ever wear coats buttoned up, even in snow. lol) Very slimming and very pretty!
If you have a S.teinmart near you, they are having a HUGE sale starting tomorrow and the 12 hour sale on Saturday. Go to their website for additional coupons!!
And guess what? He LOVES it on me!! I think he finally decided - instead of fighting my favorite color, why not be thrilled? lol Now I want some cold weather so I can wear it!!
