The biggest shopping day of the year in the US is known as Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving. But for Canadians, it’s Boxing Day! Once you’ve finished opening all your presents on Christmas, you head to the stores for massive deals on the 26th. Being that I have worked in retail all my life, the last place I want to be is in a store on that day. It is much more convenient to shop online to avoid the crowds, lines and most importantly, spend more time with family. Last year there was only one thing on my must have list and I made sure to order as soon as the clock stroked midnight…the Hell Bunny Sarah Jane Coat from Retroglam.com.
Available in sizes XS-4XL in Red or Black ~ MSRP $130CAD
If you have ever tried Hell Bunny clothing before, you will know their sizing is quite generous overall. With most of my dresses being a size Small, I ordered the Sarah Jane Coat in the same. Needless to say, the fit was spot on and there is room for layers underneath as well. The Sarah Jane Coat is ideal to wear over your swing skirts and dresses due to the fabulous flared hemline. Not only is it beautiful, the Sarah Jane Coat is quite warm with a thick quilted lining on the interior. The faux fur trim and corset laced back are what makes this coat stand out from the rest. I love that the fur trim hood with pom poms is easily removed with a few buttons, versatile for the ever changing winter months here in Canada.
As most of you know, we don’t live in Igloos in Canada but we do have some blistering cold winters every year with tons of snow. Finding stylish outerwear that is also functional (ie: warm) is not easy to find. The Sarah Jane Coat was an instant win, perfect for those cold and windy days. I love the quilted lining since it truly breaks the wind from going right through you. The length it perfect, even only being 5’ -4” tall. It’s great to have coats of varying lengths in your closet; you never know which one will compliment your outfit the best.
Wherever I go, I get nothing but compliments on the Sarah Jane Coat. People are just drawn to its originality and truly a statement piece. It’s always a nice treat to find such amazing items on sale but the Sarah Jane Coat is definitely worth the investment even at regular price. I am beyond excited to add more retro inspired coats to my collection and now have my eye on the Angeline in black.
