We often talk of highly elusive wardrobe items (HEWI) - those things that we would love to own, but just cannot find the right one for us.

I love wearing coats - admittedly not during summer, but in Autumn, Winter and Spring, a nice wool coat is a great topper. I love the elegance and drama of a good coat and have a few - so I don't need any more.

However, the perfect white wool coat has been a topper that I would love to have. I have a complete sugar eye for white clothing and black and white together. A look that I would love to copy is Kim Novak from Vertigo but a beautiful white coat at a reasonable price has eluded me. Often they are cut too slim, too short, look like a bath robe, are double breasted.... so the search continues.

I would be interested to know what your HEWI is.
