Readers, is it still called a selfie if you balance your camera on a flat surface and switch it to auto mode, or do you have to be holding it in your hand and standing in front of a bathroom mirror?
I took some shots of my coat during today's afternoon dog walk, and you can also see my new hat, just purchased from J.J. Hat Center, where one could easily burn through a couple of grand if one wanted to. My brown melton wool cap was only $35, which seemed like a lot until I priced some of their other hats (like a $350 Borsalino fedora).
It's a belated Coatmas present to myself.
|Thankfully, the dogs match my outfit.|
And here's a photo of my coat turned inside out, for those who enjoy such intimacies. One of the really nice things about this tweed is that while it's not lightweight, it breathes (as does the rayon lining), so it wasn't uncomfortable on a warmish day like today. It also holds up just fine in a drizzle.
In other news, I wish I could say I'm in the holiday mood but I'm not. With Coatmas behind me, all I really want to do is sleep.
Michael and I don't really exchange presents but I was thinking of making him a coat beginning (and hopefully ending) in January. Am I crazy to take that on? Once one catches the tailoring bug, it's hard to shake! (I did end up purchasing a used copy of "Vintage Couture Tailoring" and look forward to reading it.) Would you sew a coat for a loved one?
OK, it's 5:10 pm and pitch black outside -- very depressing.
Have a great day, everybody!
