Patience is Key

February 18, 2018

It is very true that as you get older your style begins to evolve.  A few years ago you could not catch me in any faux fur clothing.  Back then I wasn't really into to taking too many fashion risks and tended to lean more towards basics.  Don't get me wrong I still love my basics, they are the entire foundation of many of my outfits, but now I like to live life a little more on the edge and spice things up a bit.  Nowadays I want to try new things and take a few risks with my style. 

Faux fur coats were my first step to reinventing my wardrobe.  I had tried them in the past and they just never really looked that great on me.  I remember being so in love with the general appearance of a shag oat, then putting it on and looking like an entire marshmallow.  This year I kept seeing them everywhere and decided I would give them a try.  One day while taking one of my many failed target trips for one specific item, I wound up in the women's department "window shopping" their A New Day collection.  Then right when I was about to leave I spotted it.  This absolutely gorgeous faux fur leopard coat.  Now of course this wasn't what I came in there for.  I mean this wasn't even something I would typically even be open to the idea of, but I was in love, and I knew I had to have it.

Now one thing you will learn about me as time goes on is I am a habitual sale shopper.  I am a very firm believer that if it ain't on sale it ain't for me.  Seriously!  Shopping in general is great, but looking at the bottom of a receipt and knowing you saved a ton of money is so so much better.   So instead of buying this coat right on the spot I decided to wait until the next day,  cyber Monday, and see if Target would have any sales.  I am probably the most impatient human being on earth, but waiting paid off because the coat ended up being $10 cheaper then the original price.  I guess it is true what they say; Patience is a virtue.
