I don't know, maybe it's the snaps, the zippers, the rivets, buttons, zipper pulls, great textures, or the tneed I have for layering or the fact they cover a multitude of unsightly bulges, but whatever the reason I LOVE JACKETS!!! I've been known to buy 3 jackets on the same day. I've been known to solicit the help of friends and family to keep me from buying a jacket when we venture into a store.
Every year I try to cut back. I start off by donating 2-3 jackets to charity. But at the first hint of fall fashions hitting the stores 3-4 seem to automatically jump back into my closet
I don't usually intend on buying a jacket when I go shopping. But it all goes out the window (or should I say the door) when I find the cutest jacket, in the best color at a great price.
Some of my favorite places to shop for jackets? TJ Maxx, The Gap, American Eagle, and Costco. As you can tell, a great jacket does not need to be pricy. In fact 2 of my very favorite jackets cost under $7, a price like that only makes the attraction sweeter.
There are probably those who feel I need a 12-step program to help me overcome my addiction. But I, at least for now, don't see it as a problem. It's just something I do to treat myself nice. And I deserve it.
At last count:
3 with fake fur
1 beach pullover
2 super bargains
3 paid way too much
