|Etoile Isabel Marant Baki coat|
I have bought and tried second hand similar coats from IM but I was never totally satisfied with my purchase. Too big. Too small. No collar button. Too worn out!
A few weeks ago this beautiful coat popped up on an online consignment store for a ridiculous price. It was barely worn. So I didn't waste a second buying it! I was delirious! Finally, I will be able to wear the coat I coveted so much.
It arrived this afternoon at my doorstep. I wrapped myself in it. Stood in front of the mirror...Something seemed off. It felt bigger than the other size 1 Etoile coats I have tried. Is it because it is the newest coat I have bought and it hasn't suffered any shrinkage with time? Maybe.
All these years to be disappointed. It feel like I was meeting a long distance flame whom I have been idealizing for years to realize that he has flaws when we finally meet...
I think I am going to give a try though. Fall can already be sensed in the air here. We will see if this love was built to last.
