Outfit: A Well Placed Bow

I know I have said it before, but I am still in awe and ever so grateful at how well received my prints have been! Never in my wildest dreams did I think so many people would love my creations as much as I do, and I really didn't think it would provide a little extra cash flow. I mean, when I started I was worried I wouldn't sell anything. Flash forward eight months and I'm trying to decide what to do with my profits! It's not like it's enough to quit my day job or anything, but it's definitely enough to splurge on something special - something I would have never been able to purchase before.

I thought about bags and boots, but I really wanted to find something really unique. A couple weeks ago when I walked into Kate Spade I saw her and knew she had to be mine - the Deco Dot Dorothy Coat! At that point I didn't have quite enough, but with just a couple more weeks of saving, I knew she would be mine.

I had lusted over the coral version of the Dorothy coat last year, but I love this latest version even more, because instead of a thick coat fabric it is more of a rain slick. The color is also unique. It is not quite black and not quite navy, but more of a cool-toned charcoal, which makes it super easy to style and wear. Of course the best feature is the well-placed bow!

It is definitely the nicest thing I have ever owned and I feel like a million bucks wearing it. Can't you just see it strolling the streets of Paris in the spring? I thought I would feel major remorse buying this coat, but I really didn't (I did use my 20 percent off coupon and my student discount, so that's something right?). Now that I have gotten this indulgence out of my system, I will return to my normal shopping addiction and reinvest my profits, but for now I just want to bask in my glorious purchase!

What is your favorite item that you've splurged on?

  2. It looks wonderful on you! I adore KSNY coats so much. Hopefully one day I can get one. :)

  3. So happy for your success with the print shop, I was so glad I could become a customer... now I just need more wall space to buy more prints!

  4. That coat is MAJOR! Love it! and your prints are super cute! No wonder you are cashing in.

    My biggest splurge ( not really after discounts) was a Ralph Laurent Bag that I was lusting over. I went on vacation to Hawaii and found at 75% while it was still regular price back home. It was still out of my budget but I decided to spend the money for souvenirs on it and don't regret it one bit.

  5. You look amazing! I am so into that coat! I just found your print shop and I'm IN LOVE! I already have 3 picked out!
