The Dream

Dear Dream Coat,

I've looked everywhere for you. I saw you at Silver Bella and have been unable to stop thinking about you since. I've tried on other coats, but it is you I long for. It seems no other will do. I tried to get on with my life. I thought I could settle. I made a commitment to a lovely wine colored number with a lovely portrait neckline but I just couldn't go through with it and I returned it the next day. I've searched everywhere for you but here I continue to sit, sad and cold. I long to envelop myself in your soft velvety pinkness. If only I knew where to find you or one so similar to you that I could be satisfied.

Love,
Coatless in Indianapolis

  3. I checked out Anthropologie, J.Jill, Coldwater Creek, and the Sundance catalogue. Also J.Peterman; there are a couple of lovely possibilities there, but not this jacket.

    What if you contacted the folks at Silver Bella and had them ask around?

  5. I think you should either make it yourself or hire someone to do it for you! CHeck out Simplicity Pattern number 2812 from Project Runway. You can do it!

  10. Dear Coatless in Indianapolis....you should get a job writing for catalogues! I've never wanted a coat as badly as this one you so wonderfully described. Now we all want one!

    I hope you get your wish...and are soon enveloped in pinkness. Julia

  16. I hope you find it. You might want to buy some extras -- I think you could easily sell them! I love it and now feel pressure to find it too.
