Iwanna Wednesday - Iwanna live where I can wear these...

It seems like Fall is almost here. Well not here, it's everywhere else except where I live! Blogland, Pinterest, Google are all filled with fall decorating ideas, warm and hearty soups, fall colors in clothes, purses and makeup.

*sigh* It really makes me wish that I lived somewhere where the leaves actually change color and the mornings are chilly and sharp. Somewhere like this...

So today for Iwanna Wednesday, Iwanna pretend that I live somewhere where it gets cold enough to get all bundled up in beautiful, gorgeous, warm winter coats! Coats that I will never own because it just doesn't get cold enough in Kern County to wear coats like this. So I will share them here and I will drool and lust over them, but alas...I will never own them.

I know this one doesn't look very fall-like, but I do love PINK and this one is so cute and feminine!

The major drawback to this one though is the horrible chest cold one would get with one's chest completely exposed like that right? Not very practical, but then again....a great reason to go shopping for pretty scarves and you know how I love me some pretty scarves!

This next one would truly please my mother as she is a lover of all things RED!

For some reason this one reminds me of Michael Jackson. I googled him to see if I could see him wearing something similar but I didn't find anything other than the outfit he wore when he filmed thriller and a military type of short jacket which was red with gold epaulets. I just love the way this coat ties at the neck with the big red bow...no chest colds or sore throats with this one!

So that would be my mom's fav coat, but my favorite color is green and I've always loved the one that Anne Hathaway wore in The Devil Wears Prada. Oh...by the way, if you haven't seen this movie you really must, even if just for the fashion! I loved it and I love this dreamy green coat with the beautiful leopard trim around the neck and sleeves.

Doesn't Anne look gorgeous in the coat, with the white gloves! I'm just loving this coat, hope it snows this year!

Even though I am not partial to yellow I am really loving this yellow pea coat. I've always loved pea coats and I love the pleated detailing on this one.

I love the buttons too!

And just because a girl can never have too much pink...how about this pink coat with the beautiful ruffly neckline?

I'm loving it and I'm also loving the wire coat form underneath. Even if I never had opportunity to wear this one I could at least display it somewhere in my gorgeous walk-in closet!

Oh wait...that's right, I don't have a walk-in closet. Ok, maybe that will be next week's Iwanna!

And because she is the Queen of Fashion, even though she is only a Princess and because I love her and her style, I couldn't leave out this coat that I've seen Kate wearing. What I love best about it is the ruffle at the bottom. You can't find that same coat anywhere...well at least I couldn't.

Don't you love the buttons and the ruffle. And don't you love the way Kate looks in it?

And last but not least, my very favorite coats. The lovely black and white with the ruffled petticoat that reminds me of the dresses that Miss Kitty wore in Gunsmoke! You all remember the show Gunsmoke right? With Marshall Dillon and Festus and Miss Kitty?  That show and the Big Valley and Bonanza were some of my favorites growing up.

It looks to me as though the ruffle is part of the coat, but maybe she's wearing a ruffled dress underneath?

Either way I love this one!

So there you have it, my Iwanna wishes for this Wednesday are that Iwanna have weather cold enought to allow for coats and Iwanna all the coats above and Iwanna the figure to pull off wearing that much bulk!

So happy Iwanna Wednesday and may all your Iwanna wishes come true!


  1. I do like the green coat, not sure if Anne has anything to do with it or not.

    The pink number between the yellow and white coats, don't make it, sorry. I see Effie Trinket from the Hunger Games in it.

    Love the painting at the top.

    You are right though, Iwaana a Wednesday is really not my bag. I do like that green coat though.

    1. I'm sure Anne has a little bit to do with it, she is a beautiful woman. I've not seen the Hunger Games but I googled Effie Trinket and I can see how it would remind you of her.

      Maybe one of these days I'll do an Iwanna Wednesday on cars or steam engines :)

  2. The yellow one is my favorite. I love coats and have to convince myself each year that I do NOT need a new one.

    1. You are like my mom! There has never been a coat she hasn't fallen in love with. Amazingly even though it's never cold enough to wear a coat she must own at least 15. Yellow is not her favorite color, although I really love it!

  3. Iwanna all these coats. Green is my favorite color too and I love the animal print in the green one and yes, Ann looks beautiful in it. I like pea coats and military style coats. I love them all. :) Great choices and quite a variety. I even like the yellow one.

    1. I knew you would love them all...lol. So do I but especially the green one. Have fun on your vacation but the way. I'm sure wherever you go you won't be needing a coat!

  4. Some I like some not so much. But to be honest - I am not a coat person. Many times I see one I do like on someone else or in the store, put it on me and it does not work. I really do need to buy a new one and dread looking for one.
    Thanks for stopping by and nice comment.

    1. Even though I love all these coats I'm not a coat person either as they make me feel too bulked up! Good luck shopping for one though!

  5. `Loved all these coats! Did you see Ann Hathaway as Catwoman in 'The Dark Knight Rises'? Gorgeous.
