A Camel Coat to Love

Amanda Garrigus in a Vintage Camel Coat

I like big coats and I cannot lie. (Said to the rhythm of Sir Mix-a-Lot’s “I like Big…”, well you know it or you don’t at this point so I’ll leave this sentence with some modesty intact.) But I do love coats. Soooo much. It’s tough being a LA girl who loves toppers as much as I do. Rare is the opportunity to wear my beloved overcoats here in sunny SoCal, but when the temperature drops below 60, baboom, I am on it! Or in it. Or it is on me. However you slice it, even a hint of nip in the air and it’s on! (Sorry. I’m done now.) This camel coat is a perennial favorite of mine. It’s Edward An, a much beloved and alas, long extinguished brand. To me, the gold buttons are everything. The cut and color and feel come together around these deliciously burnished fasteners to create a military-cum-uptown-meets-downtown bit of sophisticated goodness. A coat just completes me. It just does. They are a simple way to tie together a look with basically zero effort, and that’s a beautiful thing.

With love,

Amanda
