I met fellow jewelry designer Gloria at a dinner party. When she came in, everyone stopped chatting to admire her exquisite Alaia coat.
I was hoping our coats would get mixed up in the closet so that she would get mine and I would get hers, but no such luck.

That coat is amazing! *cries* why can’t I have the finer things in life!

Since I just spent the big bucks on my faux fur coat, I’ll let you have this coat. I want that house!!! It looks amazing!
Sweety P says
I adore her coat!
Love the coat. It really is too bad that you didn’t end up with some how. You would be one foxy lady in it. 🙂
ohhhh, I totally identify. I’ve been craving such a coat since one started going out on dates with Nick Rhodes. …okay, so the lady wearing the coat was dating Nick Rhodes, but you know what I mean. 😉
(see web link for images of the coat being wined and dined at all the best London parties by Mr Rhodes)
Oh, what a beautiful coat!! And she looks so French… so pretty.
That looks amazeballs. Just amazeballs.
I’m sure you could still mix them up some sort of way. The opportunity will be presented sooner or later. LOL. =P
belle de ville says
Yeah…I’d totally mistake my coat for hers!
wow that coat is exquisite.. I would wish it got mixed up also..
How are you wendy? doing anything exciting for fashion week?
Nubia, I have a jewelry sale on Feb. 10, a non-fashion-related fundraiser to chair on Feb. 13 and the IFB conference on Feb. 15. If I make it through those I just want to hide for a while.

Bad luck on the closet mix up not happening!
Anna Jane says
Haha I just loved the last sentence about hoping your coats would get mixed up.
This just goes to show that the right coat can really be a showstopper – she looks so proud to be wearing it and damn right so she should!
Great pics WendyB 🙂

A gorgeous woman in a stunning coat. Next time, just club her and steal the coat. You can run fast enough to get away.
yeah, I pretty much die and sell my arm for that coat.
that coat is so cool! I covet.
maybe you guys could trade jewelry instead?
it is a beautiful coat!
That coat is gorgeous!
what a wonderful coat !!
…I am so in love with your swan rings…so lovely !

The Little Fashion Treasury says
Had to smile about your “perfect plan”, Wendy 😉
The shape of the Alaia coat is gorgeous!
I love that coat! I can totally see it on you.
That is one glamourous lady and one gorgeous coat! Sure beats my long black horse blanket number that I’ve been wearing day in and day out on the school run! I’m bored with the cold. Bring on the sunshine already! Any you’re so right about the Reiss dress… I know I’m going to have a sleepless night about it tonight… and sweaty palms… and itchy feet…
ooh so pretty, I’m sure she wouldn’t have minded you ‘borrowing’ it for a short while!
Marta from With Love... says
Ooh wow… it is fantastic! Lucky lady 🙂
I. Grace says
If I have that Alaia coat, I’d wear it all year round even in the dead heat of summer! Love the cut, tres chic! =)
I would have ambushed the coatroom, grabbed the coat and run off with it draped across my shoulders! Haha.
I’m 99% sure I’m going to be buying another bauble from you soon! Just have to figure out which one is “appropriate”!
Oh my—–love, love love, love it! Why don’t they make more coats out there like that?
That’s a showstopper of a coat indeed!
i loved the bit about you wishing your coats would have gotten mixed up! hehhehe i dont blame you that is a fantastic coat! LOVE ALAIA!
He is simply brilliant!
oh wow… I love Alaia so much. beautiful coat.
have a great week, xoxo
That coat is exquisite!
I would have wished the same thing!
yummy coat – much better than the unflattering one katie holmes wore the other day.
what a beauty!
