no progress on the coat front

i went to H&M today, but every coat i could find contained wool. boo! i poked around a little at the mall, but got bored and came home.

i can’t figure out how to contact north face about the coat with the is-it-faux-or-is-it-murder fur collar, but i did look around at all of the various online retailers carrying the coat, and none of those descriptions were much help. i think right now it’s probably safest to err on the side of caution, unless and until someone finds the coat in person and checks out a label. which is a shame, because that coat is a cutie.

soooo, i think i’m going to order the merrell and see if i like it. i’m tempted to go with the brown, because i love me some chocolate brown, but i will probably stick with black because it’s much easier to accessorize with a black coat (in my experience, anyway).

in other news: i’ve ordered some mittens from ll bean, and i’ll report back when they arrive!

  1. I recently emailed North Face asking if the fur trim on a coat was real or faux. They got back to me really promptly and said “Thank you for contacting The North Face. The fur on all of our jackets is
    synthetic.” Hope this helps!

  2. laura–thank you! i must be a dummy because i couldn’t figure out how to email them. hee.
    bvk–thanks! you’re right; i’m looking for more “dressy” or “clean lines” or something, but still it’s nice to have another idea for a longer, warm coat!!
