I’ve seen a few Valentine’s Day posts! Do you “celebrate” Valentine’s Day with your significant other or spouse? I have been married for a while. Like ten years! We have never really “officially” celebrated Valentine’s Day. I don’t really know why, we just didn’t. So last year we agreed to start celebrating as a way to stay connected and give one another creative gifts (I think I suggested that part). I started with Sweetest Day (if you’re not from Michigan, disregard) in October. Now that Valentine’s Day is approaching, I asked myself, “Do I need a dress? Are we dressing up? What exactly is happening?” I never turn down an opportunity to get dressed up!
I started looking for a dress at my favorite online store ASOS. I found everything BUT a dress. LOL! What I did find was this Trapeze Wool Blend Coat with a detachable fur collar. I love ASOS and ASOS Curve. The sizes are forgiving and they offer Curve and Plus Size options. I even size DOWN! How can you not love that??
Asos Trapeze Wool Blend Coat
This coat gave me all the feels. I’m obsessed with 70s style because I love the way my mom and my aunts dressed during that era. I also think it’s because it was $43 and shipping was free!!!! You know shipping will make you walk away sometimes! It’s not “traditional” Valentine’s Day attire, but I felt like I could throw it over a dress or it would totally dress up a pair of jeans for a casual night out! And who says you always have to wear pink or red on Valentine’s Day?
Update: Since I started this post there is only one left so, I included some more of my favorite ASOS coats on sale now!
