Shopping for a (Good) Winter Coat

by - November 19, 2008

I've been in Philly for years and I still can't get over how cold it gets in the winter. N.E. winters are no joke. I'm trying to find a coat that will keep me really warm this winter. So here's what I've found so far:

The Belted Wool Coat from Express $108.00. I like the style, but I also like the high collar, that would really keep me warm on windy days. The downside is that it comes in Ivory. I could see my 3-year-old getting sticky candy cane hands on this while we're out.

This is the Long Velvet Tie Polyfill from XOXO for $98.00. I love everything about this coat, I just wish there were more color choices, it only comes in black.

This Plaid Drop Waist from Baby Phat is cute, but I don't think it would keep me warm. I would buy this if I lived some where down south, like Georgia. Winters weren't too bad when I was there. The Price for this coat: $179.00.

This coat I simply loved. This is the Logo Belted Jacket from The House of Dereon. It costs $238.00. The color is Chocolate, it has a good length, and it has a hood. The only thing I'm worried about is if the material is thick enough or warm enough. I would need to see it in a store.

    I see you both like the Ivory coat from Express. I have to admit that's my fav.

    Promomama, when my kids get older I think I might go crazy shopping for myself. I'll buy everything I dared not get when they were little :)
