I've had this coat for ages. I go through phases of wearing it and not wearing it, but I've yet to go through a phase where I feel that I need to replace it. There's something to be said for Burberry durability.

How are your holidays going? I'm currently in New Mexico, where reality television has been replaced by the antics and strange interactions of a flock of chickens, three semi-feral cats, and a spunky Boston Terrier. I swear species cross-communicate, à la Charlotte's Web. Needless to say, I can assure you I will have lots of photos to share after this trip.
