I'm just now remembering my dream from last night and I want to document one part of it while it's fresh in my head. I was shopping somewhere VERY COLD for a winter jacket. I think it was inside Nordstrom just because of how it was decorated but I'm not sure. All of the coats were Columbia and North Face styles and I was getting frustrated. Then in the distance I spotted a rack of these GORGEOUS plum/wine colored winter coats. Ok I have to try and describe this coat.
It was sort of a shiny material all around but not satiny it was more like a soft sheen. It had a little bit of bulk to it for warmth but not a lot where you become lost in the puffiness of it. It went down past my butt just a little and sort of flared out a little at the hips. I guess that would make it an A-line? It had a double breasted front with 3 big giant shiny plum buttons on either side.
I've been searching through coat pictures on Nordstom's website and have found a bunch that are similar to this dream coat. I'm posting pics (sorry if this is boring you all but I want to document this coat because I LOVE IT!!) And I think I need to stop watching Project Runway.
Here is my DREAM COAT, in bits and pieces:
First I'll start with the color. It was this plumy color:
But in this type of material:
And the style was very similar to this, but with a little more bulk:
And it had a criss-cross type collar that had an attached hood but it didn't look frumpy, it actually dressed it up:
Remember Fashion Plates as a kid? I used to LOVE that! I'm sure nowadays they have something super hi-tech that can be done on the computer. I should look into that and see if I can make my coat.
