Well, it was my dear friend Joei's birthday yesterday. I wasn't able to post this then because I have the kind of internet that is somehow slowed down by snow, as if there is an old man personally driving my emails and blog posts from my house to their destinations, and he doesn't have snowtires and doesn't see any need to rush, safety first after all. But everything seems to be better now and so, in honor of the birthday girl, behold:
Tres chic, right? A couple months ago, Joei told me that she had found her dream coat and that I must come over and see it, and when she opened her laptop, this picture was set as her background. I thought that was dedication, but when she told me the tragic tale of how this coat is only available in Canada and she has called every store in the country begging them to ship it and offering fruitbaskets and bribes and sexual favors (okay, not really, but close), I realized that this was true coat love.
Happy birthday, Joei! Someday, it shall be yours.
As for all you non-Joei's who love it, I'll tell you that it's by Soia & Kyo, but no more, or else you might go buy the last one and then what kind of a friend would I be?
