How’s that for alliteration?!
I asked my husband what he wanted for Christmas yesterday and he said socks. Socks, you say? Just socks? No, socks AND a Pearl Jam poster. Just further verification that men really are from Mars! Taking a note from his “Spartan” wish list, I got to thinking about a functional Christmas gift for myself.
What I need (kinda need) and have been coveting is a camel coat. I swaddle myself in so much black clothing I feel like a camel coat would be a breath of fresh air into my winter wardrobe. Last year I received this Stadium Cloth cocoon coat in black from J.Crew for my birthday and I absolutely adore it. However, I am much better at spending other people’s money than my own and need a less expensive option.
I LOVE this coat. It’s beautiful, comfortable and goes with everything. Fortunately my size is sold out online so I don’t have to worry about any risky online shopping behavior after a glass or two of wine. But if it’s in your budget I highly recommend this coat–it comes in other colors and you can get it for 30% with code GIFTNOW!
Here are the best less expensive options I found:
Double Breasted Coat from Zara $180
Some sizes are sold out, but I love the rich caramel color. It would flatter many skin tones.
The color is not quite right for me, but this is a very affordable and stylish option! I love the tie waist. Who has time for buttons anyway?
Might this Wool Coat with faux leather trim from Ann Taylor by my ticket? It’s 40% off with code HOLIDAY40!! With the help of my calculator that means it’s $167.00. Not bad!
Have you seen any camel colored coats for under $200? Please share your knowledge!
What’s the most functional item on your holiday wish list??
