Can my new job be winning the lottery? No? Okay, well then back to square one.
Normally I am not very obsessed with money (you always want more no matter how much you get, so why not be happy with the amount you have?) but yesterday I was in the throes of the flu (or maybe food poisoning? not sure) and needed something to distract myself from reality while sprawled on my bed like a clammy-skinned rag doll with a seriously tangled mane (it was worse than when I put my Troll dolls in the pool and the chlorine fried their hair into matted, plastic-y gobs. Ever have Troll dolls? The ones with the jeweled belly-buttons were da bomb!!)
Anyway, my happy place centered on Pinterest and online shopping for a few hours, and my most exciting find was the Burberry Brogue leather trench coat I have been looking for ever since I saw it in the runway show (I saw the show online, not in person. I wish!). I am convinced they stocked it online for the sole purpose of keeping me alive yesterday. Kidding, but it is wicked cool:
Not a super-fan of the obi belt it was styled with for the runway, but I love that it is a classic trench, plus it's leather and an awesome teal color! And check out the trim details! If I was Rachel Zoe, I'd say this coat is "bananas" but I am not cool enough for that, so I will say it rocks. There.
Only problem, it is six grand and since I am weak from my battle with the plague I don't have the strength to rob a bank, so I guess I had just better start playing the lottery... Or maybe include this in my wedding registry? Kidding, again. It is great to have such fun distractions online-- what have you found recently to swoon over? Happy Monday!
