After I saw that red Kate Spade coat at the outlets it had me thinking about that cobalt coat from Banana Republic that I was head over heels in love with a month or so ago. Although it was still pricey, it was a fraction of the price of the Kate Spade one.
I rushed home from the outlets and immediately went to the Banana Republic website and was so happy to find out they were having a 40% off sale. It was meant to be! I went to go order it but their website wasn't working so I decided to call their customer service number (which by the way, is the BEST customer service ever. Every time I have called it, it has been nothing short of a really pleasant experience). They ended up sending me a 10% off coupon to use when the website started working again - in addition to the 40%! 50% off?! Yes please!
I ended up ordering 3 coats. My poor bank account. I am for sure returning two. I ordered the Cobalt Wool Coat in two different sizes and decided to try the Navy Double Breasted Coat as well.
They are still both about $180.00 but I figure that since I've had my black peacoat from H&M for five years now and it was only $70.00 at the time, that I can justify purchasing another coat as it will last me.
Here's to hoping they fit! Which do you prefer?
In other news, I watched the entire first season of Game of Thrones on the weekend and am so addicted. I finally gave it a chance after telling every person I know that I wouldn't like it and yikes, it is SO GOOD.
