I can't do anything about it at this point for my trip to NY on Sunday, but I've remembered that I need a warm, dressy rain jacket, ideally with with a hood, since it's going to be raining and in the 40s F on a day that I was planning to be out walking around.

I tried on that Trina Turk one that Angie has, over the summer, when I was indeed planning ahead, but it unfortunately was not a good fit and I never came across another promising candidate.

What I have now is an old Boden fishtail parka in an olive and pink leopard/camo print (it is dog walking gear for me, really) and an LL Bean red shell jacket that I stole from my daughter. Fortunately, I'm not going to the office this time!

If you were going to choose a rain jacket or coat that was warm and stylish for city wear, what would you buy?

(Who knows, maybe I'll find one on Monday morning; too bad shops open so late in the city.)
