You’re probably confused.
After all, I’m an interior designer.
How can an interior designer hate shopping?
Well, designing, selecting and creating is not the same thing as shopping.
And fabrics and home products, I am okay with.
That is another matter. And I am so not a clothes horse.
It’s not that I don’t like pretty things. I do. But going into a huge department store with racks and racks of clothes, bright lights, blaring music, a super-hard floor is a recipe for an instantaneous Excedrin Headache, not to mention how exhausted it makes me feel.
But, I very much need a few things for my trip to England!

I’m leaving in 11 days!!!
Here’s what I need.
A new trench coat.
One or two pairs of shoes that are great for walking.
Probably a new pair of Jeans.
Probably a new dress.
I want a trench coat that looks something like this.
Now, you would think that it wouldn’t be so difficult to find a nice trench coat. But if you do, you need to get it by the middle of July when it’s 95 degrees outside. Now that it’s mid-September, and still 85 degrees outside, one can only find heavy winter coats.
She’s not saying the brand. I don’t think it’s a Burberry or a London Fog.
I went into Burberry and I have to say that the sale’s woman there was an absolute doll. But alas, I could not find the coat that I want.
So, I looked online. I actually LOVE to shop online.
- I can relax.
- I can hunt it down.
- I can ponder.
- I don’t have to get undressed.
- And I get to obsess.
What could be better? ;]
I didn’t find anything at Nordie’s. I mean, I did, but they are out of my size.
But Lord & Taylor has a good selection. (and they’re also running a great sale right now)
Here are my two finalists.
Incidentally, they are both the same price and both on sale.
Do you have a preference?
Anything else I need to know from you lovely Brits who might be reading this or folks who’ve spent a lot of time in England.
Well, that’s all of the chit-chat today.
Time to get serious.
The primo award this week once again goes to Serena and Lily. And as if it wasn’t primo enough last week, they’ve also put their BRAND NEW linens and all of the beds on sale at 20% off.
You will need the promo code: GETCOMFY
And in case, you don’t remember, ALL of their gorgeous upholstery is on sale too. (same code) I made a separate sale’s page for some of my favorite upholstery pieces. And you can see some of my favorite linens and beds on the duhhh bed and bath page.
Like the Laurel Duvet Cover that they named in my honor. ;]
