When the temperature drops below 40 degrees here, people act like it’s the end of the world. Add rain to the mix and schools close plus no one wants to go outside; mostly because most drivers here don’t know how to drive in cold weather conditions. I lived in Potomac MD for years as a child and I remember my uncle shoveling the driveway when it’d snow so he could go to work. In Dallas, the entire city practically shuts down should one flake of gorgeous snow fall. After an intensely hot summer, I am embracing the cold spell. At least I can pull out my fabulous coats! I mean I can either mope at home like the rest of the city, or get decked out and take myself and my son out for afternoon tea. I choose the latter. Here is the current darling of my coat collection from Louis Vuitton Fall/Winter 2008. I bought it in NYC when I filmed at the Flagship boutique on 57th, it is one of Marc Jacobs’ masterpieces. The fit is amazing and the cut is an architectural dream. The mink fur collar is removeable which turns it into a fitted wool coat/dress. The double sided zipper also allows me to wear it fitted at the waist.
The pleated folds at the bottom swish around you when you walk, without hindering you. I feel fabulous just wearing it– even with a pair of leggings and a t-shirt. I can’t enough about this coat except that I wish I bought the oatmeal version with cream mink collar, too! It’s from the current season so call Louis Vuitton to order one– Call Gayatri at 212-758-8877 or email her. Louis Vuitton also available online at eLUXURY.com
