Catalina Coat

Once upon a time, two young women longing for adventure set sail from Long Beach, California on a Carnival Cruise Ship.  The first stop on their voyage:  Catalina Island (ooohs and aaahhhs).

Though their stay on Catalina was very brief, they fell captive to the island's charm and beauty.  One of the many joys they shared was shopping at the various boutiques.  They found all sorts of funny souvenirs including gold-plated buffalo poo.  Tempting as it was, the poo would not be purchased.

In one of the shops, Jill found the coat love of her life.  Not only did this coat encompass all aspects of her signature look (whatever that is), but it fit perfectly!  The cost was of no importance, she had to have it!  Of course, being inclined with the gift for bargains, the coat turned out to be well within her price range. ; )
