Rationalizing

pea coat

Those of you who read this blog on a daily basis might remember my long love affair with pea coats. The thing is I found my dream pea coat on e-bay, it's super cheap but believe it or not I won't buy it. The coat is heavy, therefore the shipping is $100 for Spain and I'm not that crazy. Anyone, who is interested here is the link to the e-bay auction.

Aquellos que seaís asiduos lectores de este blog sabreís de mi largo affair con los abrigos de inspiración marinera. El caso es que he encontrado uno que es perfecto, muy barato y lo creaís o no, no me lo voy a comprar. El abrigo pesa mucho, los gastos de envío ascienden a $100 y yo no estoy tan colgada. Si alguien está interesado aquí dejo el link de la subasta.

Miss Woo said...

Yikes, 100 dollar is TOO high no matter the cuteness. You can get a new coat for that shipping charge!

what??!!!?

are they shipping from MARS? maybe you can arrange cheaper shipping. gosh, it should be maybe $30 at the most.

that said, i wanted to buy somethign from drugstore.com, but for this tiny thing, it cost $37 to ship to germany from the US, no thank you, i'd rather pay in euros.

nice coat! 100$ is!?! just make one yourself...

You can apply fix+ by spraying it on top of your make up and as much as you want, and it wont ruin it!

That's a shame. The shipping would make me think twice too.

I recently got a similar one from Marc by Marc Jacobs, it's gorgeous! I find it so hard to buy vintage coats, especially online, there always seems to be something wrong.. if it's not the length, then it's the size. etc etc. But now I've finally found my perfect one.

Uiiii, me encanta, a mi lo marinerito me pierde también. besos!

If it helps, I think the cut on that coat is going to be rather unflattering on anyone.
And 100$ is such an obvious rip-off! I once had a Marc Jacobs really thick wool coat shipped from the US for just 28$

IMpresionante! Sólo puedo decir eso de esta hermosa pieza ropa

Penny said...

oh my god that is such a stupid price for shipping!!!
it is a beautiful coat, i hate it when eBay items slip through your fingers!

chloe said...

hay uno muy parecido en French connection, pero sube un poco el precio

christina said...

That coat is lovely! If I got it I might have it shortened though. As for your comment about my style reminding you of Blair Waldorf: Thank you! The pictures that I have been posting recently are from the summer and so my style has changed a little bit since then.

The shipping is a complete rip-off but the coat is a beauty...

Jenny said...

That is a beautiful coat! However, one could definitely find a similar coat for less. Who What Wear has a great selection of coats in the shop the closet section. Check it out at whowhatwear.com!

lisa said...

lovely coat, but way too extreme shipping!! i have linked you, is this okay and would you like to exchange links?? xoxo

donna AND navaz said...

It's gorgeous and it would be a great fit for me yet...on the model it looks big...? But it's an age 12 so it must be tiny! Maybe it's those puffy shoulders. Well anyway, at $100 shipping I guess I'll pass...
