Remember my Baker Street Coat? (http://www.modcloth.com/shop/c.....style-coat) - We had commented earlier on YLF that it would look more like the Sherlock coat with the red buttonhole!
That seemed like a really easy DIY, so I sat down with an episode of Downton Abbey (Season IV) and did the project. It only took about 10 minutes and looked pretty darn snazzy.
I was really excited to wear the jacket, but was approached by a stranger on the subway who asked me when I was in France. Uh, never been to France?
An education occurred - Sherlock's red button hole is a sign of a high honour in France, usually for service to the people.
At least it was an easy fix - and I love my jacket again - but it reminds me that fashion has other consequences too! And just because something looks good doesn't mean that I can wear it!
