I waited for months to find the right camel coat. I set a budget of $450 and checked Net-a-Porter and The Outnet religiously, waiting it out for the perfect one. Being extremely specific in my search, I only came across one that I loved and that was this Saint Laurent coat that, on sale, was more than $3,000 over my budget. The only other camel coat I had ever loved was one that I had tried on at J.Crew Factory more than a year ago.
The City Coat fit well and had the shape I was looking for. My admittedly first world dilemma was that I wanted to invest in a more expensive coat since it would serve as a statement piece. In the end, the coat went on sale for $114 and I couldn't say no any longer. Since its arrival, I have fallen even more in love with it. It's roomy, which allows you to create that Olsen vibe. Just like any camel coat, it is incredibly versatile.
