I need a new coat to keep me warm!

Which means I need to look at some new outerwear, among my favourite things that Elie Tahari creates, aside from beautiful sheaths for work, is feminine, classic coats.  And I have my eye on a particular one in winter white...dare I?

What makes this piece so desirable for me is the collar and the length - just below the knee, the best place for a coat to land in my opinion - most flattering and covers most skirts.  (Side note: my pet peeve is when a skirt is longer than a coat, when both are meant to be longer.)  Both make it a great, wearable to work, after work functions and events.  The I even love the "country apple" colour, although I've never been a fan of how it looks on me, I think it is such a deep cranberry it could work on most complexions.  I predict this will be my winter splurge.
