It's cold! You're broke! Get a coat on the cheap!
If you're anything like me this week, you're realizing that you A) own no long workout pants, B) have a bed placed directly below an upstairs window, and C) have a "warm" coat that is not actually warm and, oh yeah, has three-quarter length sleeves. FAIL.
But coats typically will pop you $100 and up, and up, and up. What self-respecting Florida girl wants to spend good mac and cheese money on something we'll barely use? Deal Diva Letitia already warned you about that. So herewith, a few Deal Diva-worthy coats that have FULL SLEEVES and are warm enough for right now, but are practical for continued wear in our fine state and -- most importantly -- are pleasing to Mr. Wallet and his betrothed, Mrs. Paycheck.
Merona Military Trench Jacket, $39.99 at Target. I love the fun, festive color. The light blue is so soft it almost counts as a neutral and won't clash with most of your clothes. And the high neck is perfect for, you know, not freezing your neck off.
Wild Cheetah coat, $32.80 at Forever 21. Yeah, yeah, I know a lot of people won't go for the all-over leopard thing, but let me just say, THIS OWNS ME. I want it. And something tells me Deal Diva Dalia will, too.
To The Max French Terry motorcycle jacket, $20 at Walmart. Show the weather who's boss! Toughen up, cookies!
Liz Claiborne Quilted Two-Tone Anorak, $39.99 at Burlington Coat Factory. Red and puffy, to match your cheeks in the wind. What a cute couple!
