Classic camel coats are warm and cozy. Further, the look is always on point and can last for decades or more. Updating a came coat is fun as well.
Change up the look with a bold scarf or furry accessories. In this photo, clearly I did the later.
SWISH- the wind danced!
Happily, I met a friend for lunch at The Four Seasons near me. It is luxurious but not as expensive if you sit at the bar. The bar is elegant and comfortable with a gorgeous fireplace. If you go mid-day it is quiet! My friend and I got a chance to catch up and then we did some shopping for a Mother of the Bride dress!
Classic camel coats elevate any outfit.
Mine is 3/4 sleeve which is great for cozy layering. Cashmere, or a wool and cashmere blend, is the softest and most durable.
I know the teddy bear coat is trending, but so many of them are made with synthetics. Alas, due to this, they will not last as long, and when they are tossed they will pollute the landfill.
However, if you are lucky enough to find one made of natural fibers you can consider that a classic!
It is fair to conclude, therefore, that classic camel coats or good wool coats in menswear are good investments that will be kinder to the planet.
As well, my scarf is velvet and made of recycled fur from a local artisan. Unfortunately, the store that sold it is long gone. Would be you believe it is 9 years old? And the hat which is real fur, was made from a great aunt’s coat. Sentimental value and warmth make this precious to me.
Bundled up in beige cashmere , I am happy despite the cold weather and wind. Off I go to explode the wonder that is Madison Avenue.
Laliqué was on my path to the hotel . Master glassmaking is a fine craft and the excellent work of this house is indeed precious. I do not own any pieces from this glorious store, but what fun it is to look!
Finally the wind died down so I asked a stranger to take this shot.
Mirrored yellow diamonds did a lot to enhance this neutral outfit and grey skied day.
We spent some time at Miu Miu, and as a good fashionista I did take three fun photos to share.
CHIC STAIRS ASCEND!
Too bad they do not sell this mirrored case! The perfumes are beautiful objects and are arranged artfully.
Luxury abounds on Madison Avenue, but it is free to look! Exquisite inspiration is always presented there. How I appreciate that. I am happy to own a piece of two of Miu Miu designs, but they are second-hand and gently priced!
After a long search I found a coat that is retail, but beautiful and the store is family owned. I will share this with you. This is not sponsored. ( You can also shop second-hand for one, as well! )
Swoon- worthy and reasonably priced, this is a coat to treasure. It is on sale for $224.10 and it is 100% wool.
So dear readers, are you a fan of classic camel coats?
Or do Menswear coats call your name? Or perhaps you a puffer coat gal?
Alas, I am all three!
With a penchant for the former, as you can see here with this very same coat,
and here, where I shared this from 2016.
More camel ? Voilà, the same coat and another classic camel number.
Coat preferences? Let me know, you know how!
Have a great week ahead.
May it be peaceful and happy.
