Classic cool: Helmut Lang Sonar Wool Jacket and Jeffrey Campbell 'Everly' boots

 Helmut Lang Sonar Wool Jacket and Jeffrey Campbell 'Everly' boots

You know when you first see an item and fall madly in love with it -- only to check the price tag and fall swiftly out of love?

That's exactly what happened between this Helmut Lang jacket and I. I wasn't prepared to pay full price, but was sure it would never last long enough  in-store to make it to the sale rack. 

How wrong I was! 

I picked up this coat for almost 50% off just before Christmas (I know you're not supposed to be shopping for yourself during that time but I seriously couldn't believe my luck!).

Then, during the post-holiday sale period, this jacket began popping up in the sale sections of many websites. 

I don't get it? Did I miss something? What's not to love about a soft, slouchy wool coat with biker details including an oversized collar and belt!? I still don't understand why people don't love this piece as much as I do -- and frankly -- I don't think I want to.

  2. Nothing wrong with partaking in a little holiday shopping for yourself ;) ! Especially when it's 50% off...it would be wrong not to! I mean, you can never go wrong with Helmut Lang! Have you checked out their winter clearance sale? Some pretty good deals.
    I love those Jeffrey Campbell boots on you! Very fab!

    xo, Jackie
