To the people who buy new winter coats

I know you're excited about your new coat. You want to show it off to the world!

It's Calvin Klein! It's 100% wool!

But you know what? You need to cut off the label on the sleeve. You know, the one down by your hand? You may not even need to cut the two pieces of thread holding it on. In a lot of cases, it's just a sticker that you can just pull off.

And once you finish with that, you can scratch the clearance stickers off the bottoms of your heels. We can still see them when you're walking, even if you can't.

Phew! Got those two pet peeves off my chest! Merry Christmas to me!


  1. LOL never seen the label on the coat but the shoe stickers are just tacky!

  2. After I read this post I immediately scoured my latest blog posts to look at my photos to see if you were talking about me. Because that totally sounds like something I would do, but, nope, not me. Whew! I just got a new coat 2 weeks ago and it's black wool (100% I think or not, who cares).

  3. completely agree with both of these- they drive me nuts! I see the shoe thing most often here (as most high st shops put tags on the soles whether clearance or not) and can't understand why people can't pull the sticker off.

  4. Jessica, you're right. I definitely saw the shoe thing the most in the UK/Ireland and the coat thing in the US.

  5. I am right there with you Kim! I also can't stand when people don't clip the stitches on the back of a coat or a skirt!
