Houndstooth coat

This is a bit of a luxury item that I bought a couple months ago at Express for $128 (it’s listed here on their website for $198). I had no intention of purchasing it until I put it on, and then some sort of magical thing happened, I felt pretty, and when Jon saw the look on my face he forced me to go against everything I was brought up to believe and pay more than a hundred dollars for an item of clothing. The best part is the silky, hot pink lining that peeks out here and there and feels like warm milk against the skin. Now, if only I could wear it snowboarding.

Sarah Jessica Parker has something similar for much cheaper ($19.98) in her Bitten line for Steve & Barry’s.
