You’ve seen me wear my Winter White coat from Jessica Simpson for the last couple of outfit posts but I haven’t really introduced it to you formally! After all, a tried and tested coat needs introduction, right? Before my Christmas birthday, I was on the hunt for a beautiful cream, nude or white coat that will not transfer stain or color to my birthday bag. And yes, I am that cautious about my bags because, hello??? I invested on them and want to keep them pristine for as long as possible. They would make great heirlooms, right ladies? So anyway, I searched for the perfect light colored coat that will keep me warm enough for snow days yet still look classy and chic.
Winter White Coat from Jessica Simpson
I was firm on a budget so I stayed away from the expensive ones at designer boutiques. I had gift cards at Nordstrom, TJ Maxx and Marshalls. So I told myself, I have to get it from any of those 3 stores. My birthday was nearing and still had nada. Until a few days before my birthday, at the Marshalls store at Potomac Mills in Virginia, there it was. A beautiful winter white coat that was thick and heavy for the winter cold yet still looks so classy. I was SOLD! And guess what? I didn’t have to pay out of pocket because my GC covered it! PERFECT!
The basket weave fabric, gold buttons and collar all together made a really chic and expensive looking coat but without the hefty price tag. I believe the retail price at Marshalls was about $100 ($99 – if I remember correctly). I really am surprised at what I find there sometimes. They never fail to have the best designer deals in town. Thank you Marshalls for this #FabFound! I have been enjoying a ton of wear from it! And of course, how could I ever find such beauty without the Jessica Simpson clothing line? There’s a reason why Jessica Simpson is so successful with her fashion line compared to other celebrities. That’s because her pieces are so stylish. My JS Dany is still one of my favorite pairs of shoes to date. Oh, and I almost forgot, I’m wearing Jessica Simpson boots too! See!
