I found this beautiful Nanette Lepore winter coat at TJ Maxx the other day. Reduced from $500 to $150*. Size 10, fit like a glove, just my style, one of the most beautiful and feminine coats I’ve ever seen.

But…I didn’t buy the coat :(. Because, well this is Texas and it was 94F (=34°C) that day. Winters aren’t all that cold over here, do I really need another winter coat?

And most importantly….the zipper was broken. I tried everything, because sometimes it looks like the zipper is broken, but it can be fixed fairly easily, but this zipper was really broken. Replacing a long zipper in a -still- $150 coat…I didn’t feel exactly up to it. Regrets? Yes, some, would have loved it in my closet.

Would you have bought a garment that you loved but needed a zipper replacement or many alterations?

* to justify the original prize; the Nanette Lepore label is exclusively Made in the US, so no Bengali wages for the seamstresses. Some stores even listed it for almost $700.
