SPLURGE - Burberry Prorsum Military Coat - $3612
Summer has just begun and stores are already offering pre-orders on fall coats. While I, along with most of the fashion industry, think this is a ridiculous standard, when it comes to coats with this price tag, you're going to need a full three months to save up.
That said, I can't say there is much I enjoy looking at more than Christopher Bailey's outerwear. His F/W 2010 collection for Burberry Prorsum offers even more spectacular outerwear options than the last. Just when you think you can't possible look at another gold-buttoned, military inspired, knee length coat ever again, he finds a way to re-interpret it by adding a cool zipper and finding just the right color, length, and fit to make it all relevant again. I usually splurge for the perfect coat, so expect a special post come my birthday in August for all that is winter worthy in the outerwear department, but for now, I'll say my goal is to reach $3,000 by the end of the summer. Splurge.
