I tried on Kate Spade's Essentials Ela Coat on Sunday night, and I was absolutely smitten.
The seductive yet happy shade of red. The black and white polka-dot lining (it's there - trust me). The ultra-feminine silhouette cinched at the waist by the bow detailing. The oversized buttons! Oh - the buttons!
And then I saw it. The looming $700 price tag glaring me in the face.
