coldpocalypse...and uh, anthro salemageddon!

I haven't had a down coat for a few years.  They tend to be pretty pricey, and my aesthetic tends more towards the wool layered urchin versus slick puffy modern.  But when I  managed to get this Cartonnier down toggle coat for a mere $50 at the no-holds-barred massive 50% off sale at Anthropologie...well, I was willing to test out a slight revision of my aesthetic.  Turns out I still look like an urchin.  Oh well.

Cartonnier Toggled Puffer coat, $50, was $288
Um yes, and anthrosalemageddon?  Well, after studiously avoiding the siren call of every party dress I've admired since September at deep discounts, by Monday I was able to score these beauties at ridiculous prices:

It has been very difficult not to dive back in for more!  Maybe the -40 degrees is a good thing...right now I'm most excited about the cuddly sweater dress!
