With the combination of global warming and the surprising effectiveness of layering, we’ve been holding out on buying a winter coat with little discomfort. We’ve been eyeing a few voluminous black wool coats that are absolutely perfect for this season’s sculptural silhouette, and we have a couple that we’ve been tracking online. OK, actually it’s more like stalking, but we can’t wait for them to go on sale. Last week we got an email from Oak NYC, one of our favorite Brooklyn boutiques – and the home of one of our coat crushes. All outerwear was 15% off. We were tempted, but we held out. Then, this week another email hit our Inbox. Everything in the store is now 20% off. We felt the tug on our heartstrings, but again declined to purchase. Our personal rule is that we never buy any item of clothing over $100 unless it’s at least 30% off, and preferably 50% off.
