sydney trying on a coat at Anthropologie
Regardless of where I am in the world, I seem to have a routine. I just got back to New York from Washington DC, and I definitely could have used some more time there. Although a vibrant city, and a much cleaner one in comparison to NYC, the pace is a bit slower, which makes me enjoy my time there at its fullest–not as slow as Pittsburgh, though.
While I spent Friday and Saturday at a conference my parents attended, the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, which consisted of dermos, botox inventors, industry gurus, drug reps and more, my Sunday was spent a little more how I like it–seeing some sights (which never gets old), and walking around Georgetown.
Whenever I go to Georgetown, I make sure to go to Clydes for brunch. It has been one of my favorite restaurants ever since I was a little girl, and I make it a tradition to go each time I visit.
My favorite part of having brunch at Clydes is the coffee cake topped with brown sugar. After a leisurely and almost always delicious meal (this time wasn’t as great as the others–the chef had his day off), I browse my way through the great shops in Georgetown.
This trip, my shopping went towards a different direction than usual. Where I usually find success at Cusp, this time I did not. The merchandise looked cheap, and the freshness that I loved was gone. It was the same old you could find anywhere else, and the jewelry and shoe collections, which I always looked forward to, were unfortunately boring and blase.
However, I found success at some other stores, which made up for my disappoint at Cusp–one of them was Anthropologie.
Anthropologie is a store that is either a hit or a miss for me. Today, it was a hit. I purchased the Draconid Coat, a brown [faux] fur snapfront with white circular “spots” and a grey/brown [faux] fur collar. The silhouette is extremely flattering, and it’s one of those coats that works perfectly for a sophisticated outfit for work, but it can also be a fun and flirty piece for an evening out on the town. I’ve started to get really into mixing patterns, so I’m excited to wear it with a dress I just bought at J.Crew which has a somewhat abstract pattern too.
The coat is a great investment piece, and I know I’m going to wear it over and over again. Like?
