Motorcycle jackets are over

I wanted a moto jacket for years. Black, leather, classic. So what if I’m not cool (anymore?) and don’t ride motorcycles.

I knew I was opposed to suede. And I didn’t want a color. Although I had a flirtation with a dark pink Haute Hippie one, because you know me and pink.

The challenge? My long torso and a desire not to spend a gazillion dollars on another coat. I have a lot of coats.

I bought it: Helmut Lang Magna “Sweatshirt”

It’s like I just knew that winter wasn’t about to end anytime soon.

In February, I was browsing in Bloomingdale’s SoHo when I found the coat.

Helmut 2Black, substantial-feeling like a varsity jacket, fur-lined hood and on sale. A big sale. Even less than the Final Sale price above.

“MINE,” I thought.

It’s called the Magna sweatshirt, but that’s a bit of a misnomer. This is no sweatshirt. It’s warm and luxurious and just right for this long-ass winter we’re having in NYC.

The Magna seems to be sold out, but Amazon has a similar Helmut Lang coat (and for about half the regular price).

What can I say? I love coats.

I [wished I] bought it: Kate Spade Etta coat

You know how people tell you to wait before making a purchase? How most of the time, if you don’t buy it, later you’ll be glad you didn’t spend the money.

I wish I felt that way about Kate Spade‘s Etta coat.

I bought it: Kate Spade Suzette coat

I like the show New Girl – cutesy catchphrases and all. But I haven’t been watching this season live, for the most part. Too busy.

Recently though I did catch one episode live: the one where Zooey Deschanel’s Jess wore a fantastic blue coat.

I immediately turned to twitter and asked @Possessionista if she had details of this gorgeous coat.

Duh.

Within minutes, @Possessionista (aka Dana) had told me not just that the coat was from Kate Spade but also where I could get one of the last few available for sale.

Merry Christmas to me. It’s here and I love it!

Sadly, it’s sold out just about everywhere now. Even the not-Jess-worn red version. Try ebay if you’re determined.
