Can’t Sell Him; Can’t Take Him Back


This is what I wear at winter time these days: a double breasted empire waist pea coat I bought in Japan and a knit turquoise beret I bought in Culonia last month. I love my winter things. I think I am so cute. I am so cute, no matter what Diego says:

  • You’re looking very… old world.
  • What’s with you now? That coat. That hat. Are you eighty?
  • You’re not wearing that to the bar. Take it off. Take it off now.
  • Shouldn’t you be sweeping chimneys or something?
  • Take. It. Off. Would you just take that stupid hat off?
  • Say hello to your friend, Oliver, for me.
  • Can we get you a new coat in New York? Please? Yours is killing me.

But I’m so cute.

    Don’t listen to Diego, that coat is oh so cute.

      I KNOW! Thank you, Ayngelina.

    Guy’s second opinion: makes a wee bit dizzy, but dead gorgeous. Don’t take the hat off either – it completes the ensemble 🙂

      Thanks, Dylan! I knew I could count on a man of taste.

    Tell him it’s ‘Ironic’ and cool.

      “Ironic”…?! You mean… you agree with him?

        My mom is now laughing at my coat. She says: “It’s good to have a couple of coats in case you have a brother like your brother.”

    I had a hat just like yours! I loved it and I lost it on a mountain last weekend 😦 Wear it well, ignore the haters.

    That’s a cool coat, but I am kind of worried about the hat’s retention capability. Seems like a stiff wind would just blow her right off.

      The hat actually stays on pretty well; I wore it that way for the photo to cover my face. Meno male, eh….

    I love that coat! Its classic with a new flair!

    He’s wrong.

    You can tell him I said that, except if he’s richer or bigger than me. No actually, don’t tell him I said that. Forget I spoke. Cowardice lives to blog another day. That said, cute coat and hat.

    However, if that coat is made of peas, why don’t they go mushy in the rain?

    Love! I want one too …

      I hope you mean coat, not a Diego of your very own. Let me tell you; it’s brutal having one around….

    It’s a cute coat.

    1. ieatmypigeon says:

      I know.

  10. Lol, Jack says the same thing about my hobo-coat (his words, not mine) all the time. But mine is not as cute as yours, it even has holes (only in the pocket section — you can’t tell!)… so maybe he’s got a point.

    It’s adorable! Don’t listen to your boy; some men just don’t understand fashion. Well, to be fair and non-sexist, some women don’t understand fashion either. But anyways, the point is that your winter look is very cute.

    p.s. Why do you always hide your face?

    Wow, I think it’s a super cute look! I had a vaguely similar coat, only in brown, and I loved it.
