OOTD: Navy Toggle Coat by J.Crew

Some side notes first.
  • I placed a Loft online order when the black merino wool waterfall cardigans went on final sale for $9.98. I own the light grey color and love it to pieces. So I didn't hesitate and ordered 4 black ones. One for my daughter, one for my sister, one for my mom and one for myself. The black one doesn't disappoint and look very nice in person and so versatile.  In order to get free shipping I randomly added this Lou & Grey striped cowl tunic into the shopping cart, didn't expect much at all. I was pleasantly surprised when I pulled it out of the package today. It was ultra soft. So soft that I think I can live in it forever. (That feeling might be also due to the extreme cold that's sweeping the nation today.) Anyways, you get the point. I love it. I wanted to write about it as soon as I can before it sells out. (unfortunately it already sold out when I tried to link it today, but check often for popbacks.) 
  • The STEVEN by Steve Madden Whispper Boot is on further sale. The blue color is down to $59.99. In addition, you get extra 20% off by using 20OFFBOOTS by 1/15. Black color is $127.88. You pay only $102.3 with the code.  I love these boots. I have worn it for 2 months and still love it to pieces. See my initial review here.
J.Crew really knows how to make outwears. I have to give them that. Even though rest of the collection to me has been nothing but boring recently, and overpriced to boot, I'm still counting on them to curb my outerwear cravings.  In my collection, I have
  1. 2011 Colletta in sea salt
  2. 2013 Double-Cloth metro coat with Thinsulate (in black)
  3. 2011 Lady Day Coat with thinsulate in heather majestic purple (buy this year's version here)
  4. 2014 Majesty Peacoat in heather charcoal (this year's version here)
  5. 2013 Wintress Down Puffer Coat in black (this year's version here)
  6. 2012 Camel double cloth Belted coat 
  7. 2010 Short Black stadium cloth coat
For 2014, I have added to my collection a beautiful Navy Melton Wool toggle coat. Can't believe the price keeps going up year by year. This coat's original price was $398, fortunately I was able to get my size on sale for $180 which I think is a steal for its quality and fit. As usual, I sized up to 0P for J.Crew coat since I think it does run small. I do appreciate the fact that this coat is hooded so it can block the horrendous chilly wind in New England. 
Outfit details:
Talbots sweater (old)
Loft cords (old)
J.Crew Melton Wool Toggle Coat (sold out, check for popbacks)
Madewell Lonny boots (2013, this year's version here)
Michael Kors Selma bag (here)

Sale Alert: Ann Taylor 45% off Entire Purchase (New Arrival picks)

** Great steal:

Burberry Brit 'Blackwell' Wool Duffle Coat in Deep Claret - 20% off, now $876. Only size 2 available.

Amazon sale - Green Monday Deals. 30% off clothing, shoes, jewelry, watches, luggage, and more. Code GRNMON14.

Frye 'Melissa Button' Leather Riding Boot in Cognac - I received mine recently and fell in love with it. I find it true to size. Nordstrom is price matching to $254.68 right now. I think it's a great price. The leather is beautiful. First pair I ordered I had a hard time getting my left foot in, but I loved it so much I decided to order another pair just to give these boots another chance. To my amazement, the second pair was PERFECT. No problem putting on and taking off and the shaft height hit me at the perfect spot. (Warning to people taller than 5'3" these might be too short for you.) The width of the boots are perfect for me with skinny jeans. The second pair also came in a much deeper and richer color. 

Burberry Chambray Check Square Scarf in Pale Stone Check, Camel, and Storm Grey Check.  25% off.

We have been looking for a 65" 4K Ultra HD TV for our family room to replace the old 36" Toshiba Tube we had for about 15 years.  We stopped by Bustbuy last weekend to look at the options. Samsung was the top provider and best rated for this type, but I find Vizio to be just as good. Vizio is considered the value brand, but it delivers equally great quality images.  For naked eyes I don't think I can tell the difference. Some of the Black Friday deals are already online which is great since I thought we had to wait for stores to open early in the morning to get the deal.  We pulled the trigger on this P-Series 65" class - LED = 2160p - Smart -4K Ultra HDTV for $1499.99. Free shipping and free haul away (this is a must for us, since we have no idea how to get rid of the heavy tube.) Higher price but higher rating alternative also on super sale now for $2299.99 is this Samsung 65" class LED - 2160p - smart -3D - 4K Ultra HDTV.
