While my search in Portland was unsuccessful (although I did see some amazing coats they were all wayyyy out of my price range), I was a bit more hopeful for Vancouver. Since I know the city well and have my favorite shopping destinations, I had a hunch were I would find my perfect coat. With a few stops on the way, I headed to Main Street and of course to Eugene Choo!!
Upon my arrival, I was delighted to see an additional outside space full of winter coats. My day couldn't have got any better. My search was quickly narrowed down to three amazing coats, two of which were A.P.C and one which was Filippa K. Basically it was French vs. Swedish.
A.P.C Duffle Coat
A.P.C Wool Overcoat
Filippa K Wool Coat
I ended up going with the classic Swedish Design Fillipa K. It has a sort of nautical feeling and reminds me of cold and rainy east coast of Canada. But now when I am cold, at least I will look good. Stay tuned to see pics of the new coat. Hopefully I will be able to get some pictures up in a few days!!
