Recently I uploaded a blog post sharing my experience attempting to find the perfect camel coat (click here to have a read). Long story short, I searched high and low for one before I jetted off to Montreal and had zero luck. Fast forward a few weeks and here I am sporting a camel coat from Oak + Fort that I found when I least expected it!
Here's the story behind behind the coat...
A good friend of mine and I decided to head up to Yorkdale Shopping Centre to meet up with another friend of ours to have a look at the new expansion. We decided to have a peek in Oak + Fort and walking past the men's section, this piece caught my eye. Before I knew it, I was in the fitting room practically squealing with excitement because it fit me like a glove, the colour was everything I was looking for and more and the price tag was amazing. I purchased it for around $120 CAD, and with their Black Friday sale, it currently retails for $102.40 CAD. Considering the quality of the fabric is great and it looks super luxe, it's a total steal!
Looking back, my crazy camel coat experience made me realize that sometimes you find what you're looking for when you least expect it. Not only in regards to finding a piece you've been hunting for like I did with this camel coat, but in life in general. In addition, when you find what you're looking for when you least expect it, it's way more exciting! Don't you agree?
