Growing up in Chicago as a kid, I despised down parkas. I hated the way my jacket took up more room in carpool than my own body did, that once I got into the car/store/school etc. I’d have to lug the coat around due to the blasting indoor heat, the way the quilted down made me look double my weight… but most of all: I hated the style.

They definitely didn’t have these on the market for school kids when I was little… This is a sheer winter beauty!!
