Maggie Fox, Canadian social media mogul in the making, has invested. And wisely. Rather than attempting to step into the deep quagmire of female fashion reporting, I’ll simply post the pictures and her email.
By email from Maggie.
The coat is Robert Rodriguez, wool & acrylic twill, purple 50’s A-line-ish, cropped sleeves (now I’ll need to get long gloves…) with some cool modern touches including rounded pockets. I bought it because purple+50’s style = awesome; I seem to be endlessly drawn to 50’s-inspired coats (was there ever a better time for outerwear?). It was also stupidly expensive, but I had to have it because
a) I was cold and
b) it’s PURPLE and
c) the buttons look like big, foil-covered chocolates.
There’s also some military stuff going on with the piece just under the neck, which is okay but not something I completely dig – I find it a little odd to see people marching around in military-inspired gear if they’re not actually required to kill anyone.
