So, I pulled the trigger and bought a second Lan Jaenicke coat. Everyone knows how much I wear my first one. They are an investment.....but (especially when you have a small SF closet) better to buy one luxurious coat that you wear all the time instead of 4 so-so coats.
At our fundraiser, Edgewood, I bought a second. This one is a different shape. Less structure, more "floppy." Perfect for Saturday walking to breakfast, the flower mart, farmers market......it is cozy & I also bring it for a work meeting in a freezing conference room. I love the soft pastel color. I roll up the sleeves & throw it on with jeans.
Lan has become a friend of mine throughout the years of working together at Edgewood. More on her later! Link to the coat below; tell her you're a friend of mine!
