whoa! I thought I had a lot - between jackets and coats. All are beautiful!

michelle said...

Are all of those yours! holly crap! They are all beautiful though, you always have such nice taste.

mette said...

oh wow. they are all beautiful - i especially like the martin grant and opening ceremony. lucky you!

kate said...

your coats are beautiful- do you need someone to help you downsize? wink wink

Stephanie said...

love the opening ceremony and lyell coats! you can never have too many coats. it's something i don't feel bad buying because they always get so much use.

Jessica said...

are all of those yours??!?

I am just so insanely jealous of you! I love the lyell peacoat and and the top coat by Dace. I too am a coat hoarder!

maybe it's because i grew up in southern california, but i always had coat-envy. now that i live in new england, i've discovered that it really doesn't matter what you wear as long as you have a great coat and a beautiful pair of boots.

i'm a little shocked by how many coats i own. i didn't even post four others (two ben sherman parkas, an emporio armani wool coat, and my newish a.p.c. black jacket). i love them all, but at a certain point, they become a little redundant. if i ever downsize, you all will have first dibs :)

who you are the luckiest girl in the whole world!!! i heard the APC coat and the paul & joe. and those linings...you look adorable in all of them.

yes, you could have a little blog sale if you get sick of any of them.... :)

I think I actually found someone who has more coats than me! I don't feel half as guilty anymore and - I want to buy more coats...I would if I had the room for them. I love the martin grant one...but all are lovely.

l said...

LOVE the burberry and opening ceremony coats! so gorgeous.

Linda said...

oh god, I am incredibly jealous of that Edward An coat, the lining is almost my favorite part!

jenny said...

you lucky girl! all of them are exceptionally cute, but my favorite has to be the opening ceremony coat. you have such great taste.

Lena said...

Lena said...

ps: glad to hear that you got the 5 year diary!

Ten Thousand Only said...

the marni is so fun. and the burberry...fits like a dream on you. and the opening ceremony is just plain awesome.

*sigh*

second dibs on your downsizing after kate!!!

Nanashi said...

Great coat collection, I think the lyell one really reflects your taste the most. amazing that you can pull off the Marni, too. I still haven't figured how to put together the trench style but you do it very well. I think each piece is special in its own way, you shouldn't downsize, I could imagine you missing any one of them, each is a jewel.

Field Trip said...

Lyell's always a favorite...she makes a mean coat.

erica said...

thanks for all the comments! i think the lyell peacoat is my favorite, but the cut is so narrow at the shoulders that it's hard to layer underneath. i might have to save it for 40-60 degree weather.

it's so hard for me to avert my eyes every time i see another beautiful coat, but i think i have enough now to last me a lifetime...

Montmarte said...

:) you have the best coats!

Pia Jane said...

that's an unbelievable collection. being an aussie girl in a new (cold) country i have the worst selection of coats ever. i'd be happy to take one or two off your hands if you get sick of them! love the shortsleeve flare coat, i mean it is fall '06, are you sure you want it still? ;-)

erica said...

it's true, fall 06 was a long time ago, but i'm not sure i've worn it enough times to warrant the cost!

Pia Jane said...

hmmm, name your price:-)
