Happy Monday! I know most people dread Mondays, or atleast drag their feet when it’s Monday morning, but I actually really like Mondays! I know, crazy right?! Or maybe some of you can relate?! I’ve been a stay at home mom for 10 years now….actually almost 11 (oh my gawd has it really been that long! eeekkk) anyhow, so for me Mondays are my day to shuffle my kids off to school and to try to re-organize and get back to being able to do things with out hearing “mom” or “mommy” every 5 minutes! It’s amazing how much one can get done without having to stop and go all the time, being distracted by little ones! And though I have one home today feeling sick, I still feel like I have the time (and clear mind) to do some sharing on my blog!
So with my Coat Series, I kind of had no set plan to an order or what pieces I’d be sharing…because I do have a lot of coats, so for my third post I decided not to go with a “style” of coat, like the other two posts, but rather share my favourite “brand” of Coats, Mackage!
If you haven’t heard of Mackage yet, it is a luxury Canadian brand that specializes in coats and jackets, as well as accessories! I only discovered this opulent brand last year as I was shopping at a popular Canadian department store called Simons, which carry a huge variety of coats by the way! With no intentions of buying a coat that day, I found myself browsing the coat department…shocker! I was first drawn to the mixed media of the coat; the mix of wool blend and the leather arms, and then as soon as I picked it up I knew by the feel of it that it was definitely a high quality coat! The weight of it, the materials, even the zippers told me that this was a luxury coat! The tag read Mackage, which I had not heard of before, and it was love at first try-on! Everything was impeccable about the coat, from the cut, the design, the materials and ofcourse the fit. I was so happy to find this wonderful brand and to find out it was Canadian was a bonus, as I love to support our Canadian fashion brands! Truth be told, I would have been buying no matter where it was from, but like I said, it was a bonus! Now, with luxury comes a price right?! And this was true in this case as well. You are definitely paying the price for the high quality materials and design of their products, but trust me when I say that it is worth every penny! These are the types of coats that will last you 20 years! And when it comes to an item I don’t mind paying a higher price on, it’s a coat! I live in Quebec, Canada where winters are long and hard, so if there’s a place to splurge it’s on a coat or boots! But like I said, regardless, this coat will last you years just because of the high quality materials alone, and the cuts and design are such classics!
Here I am in my first Mackage coat, with more to follow I’m sure! I will also link some of my other favourite styles by Mackage below so check them out and let me know what you think! 😉
