A-B-C-D-E.....just cut to the P!

Today I had to wear a coat, because of the unpredictable-ness of the Irish weather. It was not just any ordinary coat though. Oh, no! I wore one of my favourite coats...the Parka.

Besides the word Please, Parka is my favourite P word. 'Put my Parka down please. I know you are jealous of it, but there is no need to steal it'. Like two P's in a pod!

I love my P-p-p-p-p-parka because, I can use it to hide my scruffy jeans, I can use the hood (with fur) to hide my face, when I feel unsociable. Parka keeps me warm in all weathers. When I put my Parka on, I feel like a major lazy-bum...but that's okay. The bigger the Parka is, the better.
Someone: Eh, you do know that your Parka is too big for you?!
Me: Ya! That's how I like it.

I wear and re-wear my Parka. Definitely my favourite coat out of my wardrobe.

Parka's made a very visible appearance on the Autumn-Winter 2010 catwalk. But, if they fall out of favour, I don't really care. I love my Parka enough to wear it in the midst of post Parka trend. They will never go out of fashion though. I need not worry myself!





I cheated on my Parka by having a sneaky-peak at other lust worthy ones. 'Please Sir, can I have some more?'






Are you with me on Parka's or do you prefer some other style?

Currently multi-tasking between writing this post and watching tennis. Not the easiest thing to do. Parka's ar.....Roddick, just win the game already! Hope ye are having a great Wednesday!

You have to wear a parka in the summertime? And I thought living in Canada was cold!! Although I don't want to think about fall or winter yet, your post HAS gotten me a little bit excited for all the wonderful clothing we'll be wearing in a few months! Including a PARKA ; )

I love the parka look, but I agree with Leia, I am much more of a trench gal :)

ari said...

great post! I love the parka look, but I don't see myself trying it right now... the next months are going to be heating up here in LA, i am thinking I might try it as a transition from summer to fall.. later on.

Cindy said...

the best jacket ever. i have a winter one and a lightweight army style one for the rest of the year. they add a toughness/dress down look to any outfit and they pretty much go with anything. burberry's for fall are incredible!

We really like parkas over @ the fashion seen, but we're searching for a sherpa lined jacket for fall/winter 2010

I absolutely love the Burberry shearling, have been admiring it for a long time! And of course, parka has a nice not-that-little niche in my wardrobe, it's so versatile!
