Lots of women opt for red coats in the winter. It's annoying to see. The entirety of their wardrobe is dull and dreary, but throw on a red coat and I'm supposed to believe you're suddenly sassy and classy and mysterious? Who are you fooling? We all know better. What I'm trying to say is I'm really tired of red winter coats. This one, however, is divine. Love the wool. Love the brass. Love the very militant look. Spot on!
