~~~~A GORGEOUS BLACK WINTER COAT~~~~~ For A Little Bitty Price

~KENNETH COLE  BLACK COAT~

OK Peeps...I planned on sharing more pics of my Christmas Decor today but I killed both my camera batteries so while they are charging I decided to share with you a great little find from our friendly neighborhood ROSS.  For those of you who don't have a ROSS Dress For Less in your town I feel sor-reee for you!  I always go there FIRST when I'm looking for something special...if they don't have it THEN I go to Dillard's!
 ~YUM!  WOOL and SOFT ANGORA~

Now...for the past five years I've worn the same black overcoat...  I loved that coat...still do.  I bought it online at Chadwick's of Boston and even though it wasn't expensive ($99 plus shipping) it served my needs just fine.  Only problem is that it no longer fits because of the weight loss I celebrated earlier this year!  I tried it on a couple of Sundays ago and it looked more like a TENT on my body rather than a COAT!  It is four sizes too big now and even though I ended up wearing it the thing looked terrible.
 ~FABULOUS FULL LENGTH~

The only time I really wear a dress coat is when I go to church or if I'm dressed up nice for dinner out.  Generally I wear a cropped jacket.  Anyway...last Tuesday I drug my Mr. AGPMan to ROSS to look around in hopes of finding a new coat for a great price.  I'd just been there on Saturday and they had NOTHIN'!!!  My guy gets 10% off on Tuesday's :) because he's older than me, otherwise I'd have gone back on my own...
~HIDDEN BUTTONS and ATTACHED FRONT TIE~

So...we pile out of the SUV (actually he drops me off in front of the store because it's soo blasted COLD outside) and he parks while I go inside.  He wasn't even in the store yet when I had this coat in my cart.  No kidding...it was the ONLY FULL LENGTH BLACK COAT in the store.  Lots of jackets and stuff but no dress coats.  

Anyway...I try the thing on in front of my hubster and it fits perfect!  Then I looked at the price tag...
~EEEE-GADS~

Oh heavens...it was $64.99 before the 10% off.  That made this $240.00 Kenneth Cole REACTION Coat about $58.00 before tax.  I couldn't believe it!  It hits mid-calf (great with boots!) and the tie is attached.  The Coat is slightly A-line which is great because I'm only 5'4 and that means less bulk around the waist!

See why I LOVE this store?  I'd love it even more if they changed their sign from looking like this:
 To This:
~PINK is MUCH BETTAH~

Hope you are having an awesome day!  More Christmas Decor coming up soon!


Love to you...

Hi Rebecca! What a great deal! We don't have Ross in our part of the world. I had to ask a blog buddy last year what was a "Ross" !!
But, we do have stores with great bargains, which I'm always thrilled to find, too! Congrates on your big weight loss, too!

Beautiful coat Rebecca!... love the price, and I think they should listen to you and paint their signs all PINK!!! Maybe you could even paint a few of your signature roses on them... hmmm.... xoxo Julie Marie (they would have to give you daily discounts on everything you bought, naturally)...

HI Rebecca, I too have found some wonderful deals at Ross but also like Chadwicks(good cause I'm petite)and also Marshalls. I've had the most luck with Ross though.
I got my latest full length dress coat from my friend who passed-it was hers so I bought it from her hubby and it fits like it was made for me, besides remembering her when I wear it.
Hugs to you today and great find!

Great buy on the black coat. You can't go wrong with black. It goes with anything. I'll have to visit our ROSS more often.

The coat is really pretty - I love black. I can't remember the last time I purchased a coat - it never seems cold enough here in Florida, I usually wear jackets and sweaters. We have a Ross here and I have only been there a few times, guess I had better run over and see what kind of deals they have.

Rebecca,
Love your new coat and what a find! Black is perfect for everything. Your husband sounds like mine drops me off at the door too :)
Your dining room tree is gorgeous in the previous post along with the pillow!
Hugs,

My aunt (and Godmother) and I always agreed, "If it's pink, it's pretty"! Now I'll just agree with you since she went to heaven earlier this year.♥♫

What a gorgeous coat! And what a great deal!

I have SO much trouble with coats. The sleeves are always too short. Last year, I bought some cashmere yardage and silk lining to MAKE a coat. Still in my to-do pile. Sigh...

I have always had a black full length coat. Since they wear like "iron" and are always in style I have had only 3 in my lifetime. There is something so timeless about one and at CHRISTmas time, I get to wear my collection of pins (at different times of course :)). I love your coat. I have a fabulous Ross just a stones throw from office. I may just pop over there on my lunch break tomorrow. A girl can never had too many black coats :)
Hugs, Sue

Love the coat and love the price even better! We don't have a Ross here unfortunately. I would have to pay full price for K. Cole stuff, so that is not happening anytime soon.
