Every fall, I buy an inexpensive, nondescript winter coat…and I’m always irritated when, come March, it’s looking haggard and I hate it. So this year, I decided to spend some serious money (it’s a worthwhile investment, considering I’ll wear it every day for 4.5 months of the year) – and I was shocked by how much I saved.
This Ellen Tracy Double Breasted Coat With Ruched Collar* was originally $360 (it’s $453 at Bloomingdale’s). Lord & Taylor is currently having a sale, so I saved 30%. Then, thanks to some Internet sleuthing, I also had a printable coupon for an additional 15% off. So all in all, I saved $141.
*The black, petite version of this coat that I purchased isn’t available online, so check your local Lord & Taylor store. The link above is for the regular sized, camel colored version.
