Keeping it Classic

It doesn’t get more classic than a navy coat with gold hardware. I fell in love with this one the minute I laid eyes on it for several reasons. It’s thick and warm, it’s a true deep navy color, the gold hardware is a nice touch (obviously), and the collar is huge! Collars are my thing and it can make or break whether or not a piece goes home with me. Although the smallest size was too large, I knew I had to make this coat work (it was on sale for like $25). It only took me 4 or 5 months to finally get it taken in, but I’m so glad I did because it fits like a glove!

Coats are tricky for petites, so when you find one you love, you do as Tim Gunn says and ‘make it work.’
