This past weekend I ventured out of the safety and tranquility that is my apartment and braved the bustling mall on Black Friday weekend. I was determined to find myself a new winter coat to replace my beautiful and still very stylish Vero Moda coat from nearly seven winters ago. I think it’s safe to say it’s time to move on. Funny though, as it’s only this winter that I’m really feeling the need to change it out.
Many a coat was tried on, prices ranging from $150 to the $500’s. I am most willing to pay good money if I know it’s an investment in style, timelessness, and warmth. And no coat provided me all of the above than the beauty that is the Josette Navy Soia & Kyo Canadian designed AND Canadian made coat I now call my own.
It was a toss up between the Josette and the Anja Black. However, after much deliberation, friend’s patience, and store clerk assistance it was decided that the former had more timelessness appeal. And once I learned that it was not only designed, but made in Canada as well, I was smitten.
I am a fan of getting behind our goods and products and am extremely proud to have something that is actually made here and not outsourced. Looking around my room and in my closet, nothing else jumps out at me as being Canadian made. This is sad and needs to be changed!
