Daily Covet: Thakoon Pleated Back Wool Coat

This great winter coat from Thakoon is at GILT.com this afternoon.

It is the best time of the year for great deals on winter coats.  And this beautiful $2,000 coat is now marked down more than 50%.  Yes, I’ve done the math.

But I still love it.  Gray is one of my absolute favorite non-colors, and how can you even pass up the gorgeous pleating in the back.  It soooo reminds me of Mary Poppins!

While it’s probably not in the cards for this girl on a budget, it is most definitely on my drool-worthy list of covets!

Daily Covet: Shoe & J.Crew Review

Let me first warn you that I am on a little bit of a rampage today.  And those close to me know that this generally means, I am occasionally handing out my unsolicited opinions, in a not-so-subtle way… ok maybe more than occasionally.

First, I’m going to start out with the positive.  I ordered my first pair of Pour La Victoire platform pumps.  I always love the look of platform pumps in ads or on celebs, but feel a little “pole dancer-y” in them myself.  But trust me when I tell you that I need the height, and these Irina II pumps are sky high, which generally means you have to be “high” to wear them!

But I am here to tell you that these are amazingly comfortable.  The insole of the shoe is padded and the 5″ heel is offset by a nice 1.5″ platform.  The toe is rounded, which means that your toes have plenty of room.  The upper provides a snug fit, which is obviously important when you are walking around on your tip toes for extended periods of time.  And since they are so high, they make your legs look fabulous as any good platform pump should.

While these are not a particularly cheap pair of shoes, they aren’t in the out-of-reach Louboutin segment of the shoe population either.  And wait for a good sale at lastcall.com (read almost daily) and you can pick these up for a song.
