6 Coats under $200

My biggest complaint about winter (other than the cold, and the weather, I could go on…) has to be the price of the clothing.  Summer is easy with a dress and sandals, but in the colder months, there are sweaters, boots, and the worst offender…..COATS!  Everything is so expensive that one cannot possibly stay as [...]
