Brrrr!! Winter Coats For the "Recessionista"

I read an interesting story in the New York Times on Friday discussing the new term for a fashionista in an economic downturn, the “recessionista,”

While many of us are feeling the pinch of a spiraling economy, a girls still has to keep warm right? 

It’s 36 degrees here in Michigan with a windchill of about 20 degrees and I have warmth on my mind in this chilly market.

Here’s a quick survey of some cute styles for the recessionista or worse, the potential “depressionista”.
