Recent Splurge: Burberry Brit Quilted Coat

I have been on the hunt for a puffer-style Burberry coat since October, which is when I started saving for it. I had two requirements: I would not pay full-price, and I had to completely love it. Burberry makes many different styles of quilted coats. I tried them on in the store. I stalked a few favorite styles on the internet. I even bought one when it went on sale online, only to have to send it back because I didn’t love it. Honestly, I had recently given up. I thought it was too late in the season. So when I went into Nordstroms last weekend, I almost forgot to go by their coat section to see what they had.

I’m glad I didn’t forget! This beautiful quilted coat was just what I was looking for: black, belted, and flattering on me. On top of that, it was 50% off, and was the only one in the store. It has an asymmetrical zipper and a motorcycle-style collar, with double pockets. I’ve never had a puffer coat and I love its urban vibe. What do you think, my friends?


  1. Woo hoo! What a nice splurge! I don't think you can go wrong with Burberry really. Personally I've never taken the plunge with them except perfume. May I ask where you acquired it?

  2. Hi Styrch, yes, I got it at my local Nordstroms store. I haven't been able to find this style anywhere on the internet.

  3. Thanks Faith. I'll have to start stalking my Nordies (though it's a bit of a drive). :)


Please add to the conversation! I'd love to hear from you.
