Should have taken a picture of my coat – I think i showed it before, it is a long brown suede number from Express… ah yes I found it here. With it is an orange crinkled silk scarf with tassels from Banana Republic circa 2004 clearance bin. I got to work early and my Datawatch key wasn't working so I went to Caribou to read the latest Spin and drink coffee; as I left Caribou for my office snow flurries began and it was so pretty!

    Very much like purple on you. Dark hair and eyes. Great look!

    Snowing! Ah… It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

    It’s raining down here. Hasn’t stopped for four days 🙁

    One of the benefits of working at Express and being the only girl in the store over a size 6. The coat was returned tags still attached though several years old (this was back when they were No Sale is Final) and well LY (last year) clothing is sold at $9.99 or sent to Gabriel Brothers so I was the lucky winner!

    It sometimes pays to be curvy! 😀

    Oh my gosh, did you seriously get that coat for $9.99? You go girl!
