Keep or Save for Christmas?



  Tuesday, November 23, 2010 at 8:15 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,, 
Okay guys, major dilemma! My sister and I went to TJ Maxx on Sunday and I found this AMAZING leopard fur coat (faux fur, of course!) for $40.  It is SO SOFT and I love leopard buy only have leopard print shoes so I had to have it.  My mom offered to pay for it and give it to me for Christmas if I wanted. I am leaning toward Christmas so that way the $40 won't come out of my budget...but I don't know if I can wait another month to wear it...but then again I don't know when it will be cold enough to wear it since it's been pretty mild lately.  What do you think: be patient and wait for Christmas or keep it?  Here's a quick outfit I came up with (pretend my socks are black...I didn't want to change them).
(my mom walked in when I was taking the first photo...I thought it was funny XD)
Jacket - TJ Maxx $40 (the tag says compared at $80, but that seems low....I can't find the brand online though so I guess I'll never know the real price....it's Sisters Outerwear)
Jeans - Sass & Bide $30
Heels - Forever 21 $25.80

  2. I love it!!!! If you think you can wait a month then I'd do that (but I imagine it will be hard because that coat's amazing!!).

  6. Ooh I love this! I guess it depends on how the weather has been...Cause I know it's been awful over here so it'd be the perfect time for a lovely coat like this.

  9. Do it for Christmas! You won't be able to wear it until then anyway, and you'll have $40 still in your budget! My mom has been nice and done that for me too before :)

  10. Save it for Christmas! It looks really good with those black skinnies and heels. You look like the uber-chic wife of a rich man... or perhaps a self-made fashion mogul. :) Saving it will really give you something to look forward to in the bleak gray months.

  18. is fantastic :)..... you have to think about because it was still a little time to the world and after 2 you will have a surprise because you know what you get:)

  19. I would say since you've already styled it and had so much to do with it then keep it. I like my Christmas presents a little bit surprising, even if I know what they are. Plus, that way you'll get something else for Christmas! Budget, smudget!
