My Fashion Kryptonite: Coats

Do you have a thing? By “thing” I mean a total fashion kryptonite that without a doubt monopolizes your closet. I’ve met many a gal with a “thing” for bags, and many more with a “thing” for shoes, but if you ask me what my vice is I have a total “thing” for coats, especially when I start dreaming about the cooler weather.

Okay, I get it. It’s the middle of summer, and I am writing this in the sweltering heat, but I urge you to understand that a coat can make or break an outfit and I implore that you consider putting some thought into your next purchase.

TSALT has been kind enough to let me share with you some of their coats on order and there’s a new line in the mix, Mackage! Take a look and start thinking about your coat investment for this coming fall and, yes, even winter. And don’t worry, TSALT will let you know when all of this magic has arrived.
