I have a black wool coat whose lining is disintegrating. (Mom did fix it up for me last Christmas, but it is pretty much beyond repair by now.) So what I need, more specifically, is a black wool coat which is large enough to accommodate some sweaters/hoodies under it.

It's black! And wool! And, going by the measurements the seller gave, would fit me perfectly, with room for maybe a single relatively thin sweater under it.

I was outbid at the very last second, so I suppose it doesn't matter. To console myself, I bought this locket instead.

Things I saw on etsy which I really really want but really really shouldn't buy, for one reason or another:

handkerchief sleeve coat
wool interlock handkerchief sleeve coat by sandmaiden
Also probably not the coat my mother wants me to buy. And furthermore, I suspect I would get annoyed with the sleeves, no matter how awesome they look.

long wool skirt

I would wear this! It's long enough that I wouldn't even have to remember to shave my legs! I want it sooo much. *pines*

And some things I have purchased...

I have a J. Crew black wool coat that I will probably wear for the rest of my life. It was $200+, but it has been incredibly worthwhile.

Mine is pretty much this coat, although last year's cut was a hair different. This one and this one are also particularly sexy. This coat is drop-dead. If I could justify it, I would own it in ember.
