I Saw the Love of My Life

Walking down Third Ave. on my way to Starbuck's, I saw the love of my life. It was brown leather with embroidery, sequins, and a fur trim around the bottom, sleeves, and hood. As someone with a coat obsession, I do have to admit that I always notice coats. But this one--this one was different.

I stopped into the store and went straight to where I saw the coats hanging. There was one a size too big and one a size too small.
"Excuse me, do you have my size in the back?" I asked the woman working there.
"'re a __, that's the one in the window. Would you like me to get it?"
I figured it was worth a shot trying the smaller one on first.

The attendant took the coat off the hanger and held it open for me to slip my arms into. I eased the tiger-tooth shaped buttons into the loops, tied the belt in the front, and turned to see my reflection in the mirror. Not only was this the most stunning coat ever, it fit me better than any coat had before it. Its status went from love of my life to soulmate. Sigh...

You should post a picture of your new coat. :) My name is Lauren by the way. I can't remember how I found your blog a while back, but I really like it ! My brother-in-law is at JTS studying to become a rabbi. I wish I lived in NYC, so much fun and great coats!

If seeing it made it the love of your life, and trying it on brought its status to soulmate, does buying it mean you are married to it?

You looked amazing in it. But the Nuclear Jew is right about the free gifts. I'm obsessed with coats too, as long as they're pink. LOL.
