7 Faithful Years... And Now She Will Retire With Coach & Michael Kors in the Back Of My Closet

I need a new coat.
Okay, need is an exaggeration because I know there are tons of people out there that need a coat...
any coat...
so, I will humbly say that I want a new coat so badly.
I hope that sounds less spoiled.


The last time I got a new coat was December 2002.
Tiffany, do you remember the shopping trip? Wasn't I w/ you?


It's my American Eagle navy toggle peacoat.
It's hard to believe that I've been almost 100% faithful to it for almost 7 years.
Wow... one of my longest standing relationships. Impressive! :-)


For the last few years, I've thought of getting a new coat.
But I never, because they're so pricey - and well... I'd rather spend my money on Calvin. 


After a lot of thought and debate,
I've decided to let my AE peacoat retire with dignity, before she loses a button or comes unraveled. 
She's been a good coat. Faithful. Dedicated on those cold winter days.
But, she needs a rest.
I owe her that much. 


So, I ordered a new coat today.




I hope my new coat looks as good on me as she does on the Victoria's Secret model!
Of course it will... I mean, it's me... it will look fabulous... right??? ;-)


If you're in the market for a new coat, Victoria's Secret has 25% off wool coats til Wednesday night + free shipping on orders over $50 by using SHIP50 promo code. 

Some may be wondering what I'll do with my old coat. 
Donate it? 
I pondered the thought, but after 7 years, I'm a little...
okay, more than just a little attached to her. 
I can't part with her. 
My inner pack rat still needs her. 
I assure you that she will have a luxurious retirement in the back of my closet with other retired favorites like handbags and shoes.  :-)

I went through this same thing about 3 years ago...I retired my gray peacoat that I wore for 5 years. (I couldn't part with it...it is still in the back of my closet too!). I love the new coat you ordered- it will look great.

I ordered jammies, too. So I was able to use a total of 3 promotion codes. I think some of them expire Wednesday 11-11.

Congratulations! I love the new choice and very fondly remember the shopping trip that blessed you for these past 7 years. I can't part with certain things... so if it were me... it would be in my inner closet. :)
XOXO, TIFF

Ashley, I usually give my stuff to Catholic Charities between T-Town and Effy. But, this time of year lots of churches have clothes drives.
