Warmer days, though still very prodigious, call for a change of coats. Some of you recall that I have one of the best coat collections ever and I find that a huge compliment, but for spring/summer, I could use a little expansion here and there.

There is the leather jacket and then there is another leather jacket. And another one. Oh, and I have this navy blue long number from Rodebjer that I absolutely adore. The thing is though that one can have a gazillion numbers of something, you always want something you do not have. Especially when all of your friends do seem to have it, it is like a live version of a ‘to buy’ list that makes sure your memory keeps memorizing it.

For me it is a parka. I do not own a perfect parka – let alone own any – and I never really bumped into a nice one that was worth filling my shopping cart with either. Maybe it is not in my system, maybe my system is filled up with leather jackets already. And maybe that system is right and it is trying to tell me that a parka is not meant for me, not even a perfect one. I mean, how many coats and jackets does one need anyway?

Still, I want one.

  1. Ik heb een erg leuke van Filippa K van enkele seizoenen geleden. Dit seizoen hebben ze ook een gelijkaardige. Ben er super tevreden over, het is 100% zeker mijn lievelingsjas. :-)

  2. What about your darkblue samsoe & samsoe coat (post “window shopping”, april 2012)?
    But, I am also searching for the Perfect parka many years and haven’t found it yet…

  3. I know what you feel, but I have the complete opposite problem. I have found my prefect parka, but I’m still on the hunt for the perfect leather jacket and I’m starting to think that leather jackets are just not for me, or are they?

  4. Ik heb ook een jassentic.. winterjassen dan, want verder dan mijn leren jasjes kom ik ook vaak niet in de zomer. Deze parka is wel supermooi trouwens! En ik ben verliefd op je Rodebjer jas.


  5. Idem, ik check altijd alle parkas die ik tegenkom in de winkel, maar nooit is het de perfecte! Misschien is het voor mij ook niet meant to be en moet ik het bij mijn leren jasje houden…

  6. Ahahah I actually relate to some part of that ‘problem’… For some reason I have a closet with way too many jackets, but I am still on the hunt for a perfect particular type, like a really perfect black blazer, or a perfect winter coat, etc. And then I realize no one needs so many jackets in a lifetime (not that it makes any difference in the end…)! But yeah, I see your point… Want versus Need is always a tough struggle! :)
