My birthday's coming up this week and I think maybe I need to get myself a present. Like a nice boxy masculine coat. Tried this one on at Zara yesterday and left totally smitten but also mildly confused. Unbuttoned it looks stunning, so cool I almost can't even stand myself in it (though the buttons may need changing - a wee bit too shiny for my taste - but that's an easy fix). Close it up and it goes kind of wonky. Too much room on top with nothing to anchor it, and then very fitted across my (somewhat ample) derriere. It's ok, but not perfect. But then, I could just wear it unbuttoned all the time, right?
I can't stop thinking about it. I may be in love. And I think maybe it's ok for a birthday purchase to not be the most practical item in the world, no? What would you do?
