Closet Diaries +My new fab coat

So, I didn't come at all prepared for New York City weather. It's windy and cold and you need a nice longer down coat to beat it. I went to Macys, the largest store in America, on 34th and 5th Avenue. Eight floors and takes up the whole's huge. Anyways, I took the escalators all the way to the 8th floor and found myself a fabulous warm coat.

I found this Fabulous Coat: RUD by RUDSAK.
RUDSAK is a popular Candian lifestyle brand-similar to Michaek Kors- featured in many fashion magazines including: Fashion , Zink, and Candian ELLE, among others. Founded by Evik Asatoorian in 1994. His concept was to create a look with a European flair and make his garments look as slick as possible. It wasn't until 1999 that Evik opened his first store; Since then he has become one of Canadians leading designers and his label has turned into an all-encompassing lifestyle store; starting with it's leather coats and jackets, then trying out leather purses and finally creating the perfect shoe to go along with it's perfect purse. It's a timeless label, I absolutely love it and am pissed that it took me so long to find it! <3

This coat is so warm and you can tell it's good quality just by looking at it. Made with down feathers and a tight woven polyester fabric which makes it wind resistant and super warm! Thank god it comes with a belt to help maintain the waist. Most down, or puffer, coats hide the figure and mask your natural figure resulting in a boxed out shape. In a city like New York you have to stay warm while still looking fabulous, so this coat is perfect for my 15 block commute to Marie Claire every morning! To top it off, this coat can be worn more than one way....
...You can wear it Peacoat/trench coat style and show off the nice's more sexy this way! Love. It's timeless and I'm more than certain I will be wearing this coat 10 years from now. While I had it on in the store some lady came up to me and asked me where I got my coat. I pointed to the other ones and she was so excited she literally jumped over to the rack.

P.s. Still no roommate. Weird, although...I think I like it.
