I don’t know if this year is officially the coldest winter in Southern California but some days it sure feels like it.  We usually don’t have much of a need for coats in California but this year with the dip in temperatures I decided to purchase three new coats. Three new black coats. However, with red seeming to be the color designated for the month of February, I just might need to purchase another coat..this time in red. I have found that red is usually a color that people love or hate. I choose to embrace it, especially if I can look as stylish and chic as these lovely ladies.

    I have thoroughly enjoyed this winter as it does seem to be the longest stretch of “cold” weather Southern California has had in a long time. I love fall and winter clothes and usually don’t get the opportunity to wear coats. I don’t own a red coat, but I sure love the color and some of the styles you’ve shared are tempting.
    Have a great week.

      Well our stretch of cold seems like it might be short lived. What happened to El Nino? It’s supposed to reach the 80’s by the weekend. So much for winter!
      Even with the escalating temperatures, I still plan on shopping for a new coat and if a gorgeous red one and I cross paths it is coming home with me despite the warmer weather. Have a good one, Karen.

    I think you should totally get one! I used to think that red coats were too much, but a few years ago I saw a red rain jacket inspired by Michael Jackson’s thriller jacket – I couldn’t resist and I got it. It is still today my favorite one. I’m in nor-cal and I’m also thinking about getting myself a new coat, maybe I’ll get a new red one.
