What I Wore: Statement Coat Edition

Do you know why I love the holiday season? It’s not because I get to see family and old friends and eat a bunch of food, it’s because the retail world saw an opportunity for mass marketing! Call me crazy but who doesn’t love a good sale?

Although Black Friday and Cyber Monday are the biggest sales days of the year, retailers keep the sales momentum going from mid-November to mid-January. My motto is: never pay full price for anything!

Now I say all this to say, be on the lookout for great deals on outerwear this season. I scored this awesome Rachel Roy statement coat at Macy’s for 40% off. Actually, my wonderful mother decided to buy it for me as an early Christmas present. Thanks Mumma!
