Splurge: Rick Owens Lilies

Another to-die-for, gasp-inducing number from the inimitable Rick Owens. I am head over heels in love with this cashmere-blend coat. My relationship with coats closely parallels my relationships with men: I have plenty on hand, but most of them are show coats, of the stuff that flings are made of -- good looking eye candy that come in a variety of colors and textures that interest me for a season or two, , but ultimately leave me cold and unfulfilled in some way. This one hints at a serious, long-term relationship.

At $965, it's not terrible, but just out of reach. Trying to decide whether or not to scrap the London trip I've been trying to work out (it's freezing right now anyway, and would only be for a weekend) or the coat (will keep my vulnerable neck warm and love me forever).
