The look for less

Although I swear every fall/winter that I have more than enough coats to last me a lifetime, I can never resist adding a few to my collection.  Enter Old Navy.  I managed to snag a few when they went on super sale last week.  (I placed an order right away because I suspected that the outerwear Facebook coupon would cause Gap Inc. to raise the prices again.  I was right.  My Friday prices are cheaper than the price now... even WITH the code.)

Anyway, the mail person just dropped off my order and I am now sitting here debating between the yellow and orange. The yellow seems more fun, but I'm trying to figure out if I have yellow blinders on. The orange might be more flattering on my Asian skin (yellow undertones with pink cheeks).

And although I missed out on last year's J.Crew ruffle coat:

I think this is a good substitute.

The material is not the best quality nor the warmest, but I'll take it as a cute coat that will take me through fall and the warmer days of winter (or house to car days).

I bought the same jackets on Sunday. The orange is on its way to me along with the ruffled one in blue! You have good taste!

Very cute coats. I just picked up ON ruffled collar coat in gray. I was seriously considering the yellow, but I thought it might wash out my pale skin. In person, I also thought the gray wool looked higher quality than the yellow. But I am still considering exchanging it for the yellow -- I cant resist a nice colorful coat!

I was so tempted to buy the orange or the yellow ruffle collar coats... they are TOO cute, but I decided to buy the tan toggle coat, just because it has a hood. And I can't afford to buy two new coats this winter. :(

The ruffle coat is goregous too! I'm loving Old Navy this season :)
