Shelbee of Shelbee On the Edge and myself started this serie after we had hosted The Bad Buy Book for a year. Now we are ready for a new challenge! Every 15th of the month we show our Good Buy or Good-Bye item. And we want you to join!
You can choose yourself whether you want to show a Good Buy (which is an item you are really exited about) or a Good-Bye ( which is an item you are going to say good bye to). We will keep buying a Bad Buy from now and then, you know, it was so cheap, you were in a hurry and really wanted(needed) to buy something etc. But of course we also have those purchases that can make us so very happy. A piece of clothing that you have had for years and that you also wear a lot. Or something you bought on a holiday, and every time you wear it you get that holiday feeling back. Every month you can choose which item you want to send in. A Good Buy or a Good-Bye. We will provide a theme for each month!
So let’s start with The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book: Coats!
First my dear blogging friend, in a style I like most on her, and co-host Shelbee of Shelbee On the Edge
I bought this black and white herringbone menswear inspired overcoat from Talbots about 20 years ago and it is still a staple in my coat wardrobe. It goes with everything from dressy to casual, classic to edgy. I have worn it every winter since I bought it and it seems to always be in style. That is a Good Buy, for sure.

Here is my faux fur about…20 years old and it is worn every winter over dresses or even jeans when I want to feel glam.

This coat is heavy and will keep me warm! In the south I don’t get to wear it much, maybe once or twice a year. But when I do get to wear it, I feel like a movie star.
Of course Jodie is part of us! Jodie’s Touch of Style
Here’s a photo with all 3 of us wearing different much loved coats. I have on a puffer, my mom is wearing a cape, and Nancy is trying to make her white denim jacket winter appropriate!!!
This is the charming Gail of Is This Mutton
I must confess that the coat I am going to share with you is already in the bag to go to the charity shop. I only wore it once! I had read that tweed and check coats were going to be very “big” – this was in November 2017 – and so I made an impulse buy online from Next.
You would think that the coat is fairly easy to style, being a neutral colour scheme. But I just never liked it. I think it makes me look big, and and it was always reproaching me from the wardrobe. So that’s my bad buy / good bye coat.

My leather biker jacket. I bought it just over two years ago, and even though it is too warm to wear much of the year, it’s a good-buy anyway! I had been looking for more than 5 years for the right leather jacket to come along… I wanted a biker jacket that wasn’t black or brown. (Too harsh and warm, respectively, for my complexion.) When this one came along, I was sold! Not only is it a great color, it is buttery soft and the biker lines give it a BA vibe without looking tough. Not only do I love how it looks, and feels, but it captures a part of me that most people don’t see, or even imagine is there… It’s good to keep people on their toes!

Good buy I thrifted this camo coat by express and it has a fur liner that can be removed making it a three season jacket
And here is my favorite coat!
I bought this one in sale last year. Because I just needed a longer coat for Winter. It is my favorite one because the color, blue and red, is so lovely and it is a warm one!
