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!
