I saw this coat online, and like a woman possessed, I tracked it down and bought it within a space of 60 seconds. Sometimes, style is like that; a posession, a taking leave of one’s senses, a moment where logic temporarily goes off-air. I was overtaken by the desire to own this life-changing, mood-lifting bit of fabric called a coat.

I’m obsessed with coats. Luckily, I live in a place where I have nearly-year-round occasion to wear coats.

I’m a 45-year old who has never let age or expectations determine anything in my life. I studied Philosophy at University, went straight to Wall Street (as every philosopher does, no?), and had a 20-year career in Finance (which conveniently happened to “finance” my wanderlust). I managed to squeeze in some work for a few fashion magazines along the way, and also took a year off to travel solo. I got married at 40, had a baby at 43, and decided to trade the world of Finance for Fashion. My Style reflects my personality and my mood, as Style should.
