....the Heritage Raincoat from Anthropologie. I mentioned here that I was going to go try it on to see if it was worth all the obsessing I was doing, which I didn't actually do because I was afraid I would fall madly in love with it and then it would never go on sale and I would never get it. Turns out that was a good decision, because I did fall madly in love with it. Yay! Even though it's technically a raincoat, it's waxed cotton instead of anything plastic-y, so it's functioning as my fall coat, too. The pockets are lined with the butterfly-print flannel, too, so they're nice and cozy.
because who doesn't love an awkward mirror picture?
I'm not usually one for posting photos of outfits, but I wanted to show how it looks on a person rather than how it looks in the website photo. It's an a-line coat in a thick-ish fabric, so belting it like a trench makes it look weirdly bulky. I like tying the belt in the back instead, it's much more flattering. Plus it makes me feel like the girl in this beautiful illustration...

Speaking of trenchcoats, I have one that needs a new home. It's the Classic Case Jacket from Modcloth.com, by Jack by BB Dakota (no longer available on Modcloth).
I love it, but the shoulders are too narrow for me. Worn once, in perfect condition, and I still have the included replacement button.
Originally $89.99 on Modcloth
$45 including shipping, $40 if you're in New York City and don't need it shipped

Hope everyone's having a fantastic weekend and enjoying the beautiful fall weather!
