Buttons & Bows

I have a confession to make–I like big bows and I cannot lie; all of you other bloggers can't deny...and I'm done with my fashion blogger remix to "Baby Got Back". But in all honesty, how could you not love this coat? It's classic shape, glittering buttons and that bow–major love at first sight. Click read more to see how this beauty made it's way into my heart, and my slightly overfilled closet.


Let me set the scene–its the weekend after Thanksgiving and I've purchased pretty much every single White Barn Candle Company snow globe candle pedestal the city of Columbus, Ohio has to offer. To answer your question that's probably running through your mind–Yes, I was more than slightly obsessed and found them to be the perfect gift! Continuing our shopping extravaganza, my MIL and I went down to the Tanger Outlets in Jeffersonville, Ohio and hit up a Kate Spade store that was having a 60% off sale. Surprisingly enough we walked into the store and were told that we were the first people in days who didn't have to stand in a huge line before entering. Yeah, it was that crazy!

The clouds parted...or better yet the sea of frantic female shoppers...and I found this amazing bow coat hanging back in the corner. I'm really not sure how I lucked out, but this wool beauty was my size and originally priced at $698 (YIKES!). I ended up snagging it for $248–a completely unfathomable price! Best. Holiday. Deal. Ever.

Total props to my long-time best friend for finding me the most perfect polka dot sweater for Christmas!

Side Note: Give a warm welcome to Kacie's shadow, who joined the party just as we were finishing up photos over lunch. :)

  4. I actually laughed out loud at your opening sentence. No bloggers can deny that a big bow is best!

    1. I agree! It was definitely way more expensive that I am typically comfortable spending, but it had to come home.
