Item of the Week 032

UntitlllllllllllledRecently I was a very very naughty girl and bought a rather expensive item- the Alannah Hill 'Secret of Secrets Coat' which I wrote about here. Ever since I posted my winter coats wishlist, I've been even more fixated on this item; although I initially preferred the pink coat from this year's Alannah Hill collection, the overwhelming amount of comments I received on that post which favoured the 'Secret of Secrets' coat made me changed my mind. I wasn't intending to buy it (isn't that always the case?!) because I've acquire a few too many new coats in recent times; always justifying this by the fact that I'll need them for the early mornings in the city (not too sure how many times that constitutes a valid excuse). While browsing the Alannah Hill website; during the brief period in which there were 50% off coats and jackets, the Secret of Secrets Coat somehow made its way into my shopping cart and then days later it arrived at my apartment...oh dear! It's even more stunning in person; definitely one of the most gorgeous items I've ever owned. I'm sure it comes as no surprise, after all my recent posts, that I'm drawn to the colour. I adore the oversized collar, the stunning buttons and the gorgeous detailing. The shape is so unique and girly. It's also predominately wool, with some cashmere composition, so its warm, comfortable and soft to wear. What could be better than the kitty cat lining?

Oh, but I love this coat so much on you, and I'm so glad you went through with it and bought it! It's the most beautiful color and is definitely a "you" piece. Whenever you wear it I just want to comment on how cutely cut it is. Especially the collar and the ruching that makes it poof out like it does. :)

xStroutx said...

I think cold early mornings is totally a valid excuse... And of course as with everything Alannah Hill this is GORGEOUS

This is lovely! I don't think you are naughty for buying it - you were clearly swooning over it for a while. I bet if you went to look at it and it had sold out you would have been kicking yourself. That is the worst feeling ever!

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm dying over this coat. It's so cute and that lining is the best!

I always wind up buying stuff that's too expensive. One of the worst things I do is put stuff in my shopping cart, have a few glasses of wine, and then go back to the computer and buy what's in the cart! I'm terrible!
