coat fund drive



This is the last fund drive post and I will be back to my regularly scheduled program of outfits tomorrow.  All of these coats will be listed on Etsy tomorrow for $30 each (I am still working out shipping and doing research with my post office guy tomorrow to figure out the lowest possible rate for both domestic and international shipping)  All of the previous coats and shoes have indeed been listed at an estimated postal rate.  Rates may change tomorrow afternoon.

I want to Thank You ALL SOOOOOOO ( emphasis on so) much for your support in this!  Everyone who took the time to comment, vote, or get Chictopia accounts, you are so very very sweet!  Even the people who are just sort of watching and coming to my blog periodically are really boosting my spirits!  (I have a people counter!! I know you are there!  I don't know who you are or where you are from, but Thank you for coming and really, that alone is SUPER huge for me!! So please know I am even VERY thankful for your watchful silence!) I feel I have to find some way to make it up to you, so I am scheming a huge, multi person giveaway!  I have not worked it all out yet but it will be coming soon!

COMMENT OF THE DAY: I kind of get this question a lot and I feel my photography technique may be a bit deceiving and makes me an optical illusionist.  So if you are asking the same thing to try to gauge if something will fit right, my info is all listed in my policies section on my Etsy.

Okay these coats are to die for but I'm curious, how tall are you? You always look so tall in pictures, those coats would probably touch the floor on me!

Hey! I think I can see your sad smile... :-( All these are jems... I can't believe you do this. Well, I'm really not sure, but I think if I had the chance, I couldn't do this much for the conference... So, I really admire you... You know I'll be on vacation 5-8 February and I don't know how much money I'll need, that's why I'm not brave enough to buy at the moment but these are way too beautiful. But you know, I really want you to go there... When I came back, if there is any left that I liked,(of course I hope they all finish by the way) I'll buy (if I have money...) :) Well, you get my money way too late but, I don't know, it might help and I would have one of your gorgeous trenchcoats!!!

Love you...

I'm one of the people-counted people! Love your site. You dress the way I wish I could, if I weren't in an uber-conservative profession. I suppose that's what weekends are for, right? Anyway, you've got a great thing going here. Hope you get to attend the conference in NYC. Jill

I am one of the people counted thingymajigs! Having been loving your style, persona and blogging ways en generale ever since I happened upon your site. A daily read. You must be incredibly determined to get to the conference, good luck to you - I'm sure the experience will be more than worth it! :)

I wish there was a way that I could help you by purchasing a coat. It would be special to know that I was able to do more than just voting and crossing my fingers. Just know that you're in my thought and I'm sending good vibes your way!

Kelley Anne said...

That green brocade coat in your Etsy shop is teasing the hell out of me. It's gorgeous.

I wanted to drop by to let you know there's an award for you on my blog. Your blog has been blowing my mind since I discovered it.
