Time to bring out the Jackets

Back in April when I  had visited Boston, I was having a girls day out with my middle-school friends (imagine!)! After a couple of glasses of wine and food and strolling around Newbury Street, one of the two friends informed that she needed a 'Jacket' as she resides in NYC and could always use 'another' one in her closet. Since we had exhausted (read: achieved!) all our plans for the day, we all agreed and entered the first store (Lords & Taylor) we could find [my legs were killing me 'coz I was donning these beauties booties all day!]. She was trying one jacket/coat after another, dissatisfied with the fit. That's when I saw 'this' jacket hanging and asked her to try it. Unfortunately it was not in her size but mine (of course!). I tried it and it fit perfectly but I told my friends I had enough jackets to clothe a small country so I definitely did not need another one [also I live in Texas so how many could I possible justify?]. But as I was about to take it off and hang it back on the rack-rails, I saw 3 woman staring at me and the jacket and waiting for me to take it off so that she could buy (try!?!?) it! That's it! I decided there and then that, "I am going to buy this jacket". After all it is not like I was buying a Russian Fur Coat, for crying out loud! 


I have learnt that if I haven't written a post by 9pm max. I shouldn't even bother ... 'coz after that my energy is low [I wake up by 6am-ish] and I am literally dragging my fingers through the keyboard and letting sentences form without any thought! Knowing how honest I can be, it is a really scary thing and I should 'really' avoid it! 


P.S. As for the two 'Pictures' from yesterday's post, Geeta guessed both the locations spot on! First is Budapest and second is Disney, Florida.

  4. Oh, I love this look on you. Classic with a twist. A girl can never have too many jackets, even if it's just to try them on and stroke them once in a while. xxx

  28. The jacket is pretty good! Love the rosette on there!

    I love your kurti(??)/tunic a lot! Paisley of course! ;) Although I'd have loved if you paired it with some other pants! Something skinnier you know?! :)

    You look great overall anyway!
