this coat has a pretty depressing sad story. i mean, it may not seem like that to most people once i tell it but some of y'all may get me. well, a few years ago (and i'm talking like 5 years ago) my sister and i went a little crazy on a black friday sale at bcbg mazaxria and purchased a few coats and sweaters on major discount. a lot of stuff that i'm still sporting today; however, this is the first time in five years that this coat has made a debut in to one of my outfits of the day. FIVE YEARS!
that's not even the sad part.
when living in the valley, there weren't a lot of days in the year that the weather actually required some form cover-up so i knew it would be awhile until i could actually wear my new coat. well, there was one magical (and i say that sarcastically) cold day that i thought, "yay! i finally get to wear it!" and it wasn't until i took it out from my closet that i saw that little black sensor at the bottom left of my brand new trench coat. i remember thinking "how did i not see that before" and kicking myself because knowing me, who knows where that receipt went.
i had plans to give it to a few friends that worked in retail but i never got around to it and eventually i just forgot about it. since then i've moved about four or five times and everytime i came across this trench it would make me really sad. it had been too long to go back to bcbg and i didn't want to pop it off myself with the fear of marking it forever. i always had hope for it though, that one day i would find a way (which, is one of the reasons why i never got rid of it. that, and i have a problem with never weeding out my closet).
well, a few weeks ago, i was mentally planning a shoot and outfit in my head and i thought. "UGH, my trench coat would be perfect." "GRR!" it just really sucked! i was thinking maybe i can position myself so that the sensor wouldn't come out in pictures but that made me even more sad. it was then that i thought, "why haven't i googled this???"
three and a half minutes later, i have a semi-new trench coat, sensor free! after all these years!
yeah, i know what you're thinking. trust me, i'm still upset at myself for waiting this long but whatever. thankfully, it's a timeless piece that i can now see myself wearing over and over again as winter has finally emerged. i love that its so versatile and you can wear it with any type of outfit. my first choice was to wear it with my super comfy SUAVS shoes that i really haven't taken off since i've gotten them. i've been thinking about getting another pair because i really do have all these outfits in my head that would be perfect with them. and right now until the end of the year you can get 15% off using coupon code 'HELLOTUESDAY' at checkout.
well, i hope you all have a great rest of your tuesday and stay tuned for another post (wait, what? two post in one day?), yes another post about foray collective later today. until next time, xo ❥
