Silly vs. Seriousby Mary Sheehan Warren on 12/14/10
One of the first things I learned when I moved to the Midwest is that you just can't exist in a silly little coat. Sure, a wool pea coat is quite the snappy layer to your winter ensemble, and a short puffer has its merits. But neither of these can withstand the Arctic blasts which make their way to our shores of Lake Michigan. For these, we have the beloved parka.
Even better, a stylish parka!
