UPDATE: coat arrived, here's a picture (sorry I couldn't be bothered to get my shoes). I do love it and hope it will serve me well and long. If anyone has suggestions for a colorful winter hat to go with this? I have lots of neutrals (greys) already but like the idea of a colored beanie for extra pop in the dark days.
I came across a rainproof padded coat in December that I liked. A little more expensive than I'm used too, though already reduced in price. I decided to hold off (thought it mightbe further reduced too...). Last weekend I went shopping as you know and I wanted to try it on again. Alas: my size had sold out and the smaller size was too tight across the chest! By then I was pretty convinced I want this coat but now I can only find my size in one other webstore... at full price.
Not sure if I want to spend this much on a coat! Such a bummer that it sold out at reduced price so fast! But it has all of my practical requirements and is pretty unique with the seafoam color and I'd probably get a lot of wear and a lot of joy out of it...
What would you do? Bite the bullet or breathe, let go and trust I'll find another option later (probably next fall then)?
