21 Plus Size Coats for Fall/Winter

Whenever I begin my fall and winter shopping, it seems that I always overlook outerwear, which is why I end up wearing the same black coat all season long.  However, this season, I am determined to expand my outerwear collection with interesting coats and jackets that will complement my current wardrobe.  Luckily, despite being somewhat early in the season, there are quite a few options available in plus sizes that I could certainly see in my closet.  Below, I've put together the options I'm loving at the moment.

Bargain Hunting 101: How to Shop at Nordstrom Rack

As you all know, I am an avid bargain hunter.  I live for finding amazing (and sometimes high-end) items for a steal.  Many of the higher-end items you've seen me wear in my posts (like my Stuart Weitzman peep toe pumps, Manolo Blahnik pumps, Frye bag, etc.), I've purchased for 70 - 97% off.  Yes, 97%!  Most of these items are from Nordstrom Rack, which is one my favorite places to bargain hunt (see previous post here).  So, today, I wanted to do something different and share a few of my shopping tips for finding great items for a steal at their store.  (Obviously, these are tips that work for me and may not work for you, but you should definitely give them a try.)
