The thing that sealed the deal for me to purchase these impractical yet economical jackets was that this neon yellow-green one matched my new, not so economical Gucci python clutch. I bought this bag in Las Vegas, as python is actually illegal to purchase in California, and although I'm not a huge python fan, I couldn't resist all of the gorgeous colors of the bag. Sure, a lot of my very colorful wardrobe already matches the vibrant colors of the bag, but this coat seemed to be a match made in heaven for it, so I was sold.
My husband later lamented how the purchase of one thing, be it a bag or a coat, leads to other purchases so that I can have a complete outfit. I can't say that I disagree with him, as women's clothing always leads to a dangerous domino effect of purchases. But then, that's part of the fun!
