little red ♥

Between getting caught in the rain at least three times in a week and a half and Anthropologie's amazing outerwear sale, I thought it was a good time to get something I've been pining after for weeks...

....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, 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.
