You guys probably already know how much I love my Mackage coats. I’ve been a huge fan of the Canadian brand for years and have a wool coat by them, and a leather jacket that you’ve seen me wear a ton. I was so excited to learn this morning that the jacket Meghan Markle was wearing (seen here this morning on their first official tour at Nottingham) is from Canadian brand Mackage, and it’s currently available online! I’ve already given my husband a wish list but I think I’m going to have to amend it to include this jacket. Don’t you wish they were having a winter wedding? I think it would be so elegant and different for a Royal wedding in the winter. The outfits would be more exciting and elaborate, and Catherine wouldn’t be immediately postpartum and with a newborn, or very pregnant.
I mentioned already a few weeks ago that I was on a wool coat hunt for Black Friday and I did end up finding one I love by Fleurette but it was very pricey. I’ve found several on eBay and I’m almost ready to pull the trigger. Basically what I’m after is a cozy, soft cashmere/wool blend that drapes beautifully and is easy to wear and not stiff. I want something I can dress up and look elegant in, or wear with a pair of sneakers and a sweatshirt. Check out all the eBay options here!
I’m overall a fan of Meghan’s looks but this handbag she’s got here I am not a fan of. The bag is by Scottish brand Strathberry. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen this style of bag with the fold over metal clasp on youtube bloggers, and I wasn’t enchanted with the design detail. The pricing isn’t outrageous though for a luxury handbag which is nice, so it’s definitely an appealing price point for a luxury bag. I’m saving my pennies for this Chloe bag which has a similar metal hardware detail on it. One day in 20 years I may just have enough.
