Never thought it’d be used more than that one visit. Boy was I wrong.
I bought this coat on sale during the winter of 2010. I was visiting family and it was cold. COLD. I’d been uncomfortable the whole trip.
Enter my below the knee down feather puffy coat with fur lined hood and furry pom poms to boot.
I wasn’t thinking then of the animal atrocities that occur in China to make rabbit fur available to me. For this, I have regrets.
I also didn’t think I would ever really be needing this big coat ever again. But it has come to be a winter staple in my wardrobe.
I call it my Chicago coat.
And it is warm.
I associate it with all manner of happiness and family and coziness. Everyone should have a giant puffy coat to keep them warm. Mine is a giant coat made of blankets and hugs. Perfect.
Be well, my friends.
