I took my parents to Soho for some post-Christmas bargain shopping. We stopped by Muji, one of my favorite stores for minimalist basics. And what timing! All women’s packable down puffer jackets were 50% off! My mother, who never ever ever buys anything, snapped up one in taupe. It is a great find – warm enough for her to wear the rest of the New York trip as well as lightweight enough to wear on chilly nights back in Northern California.
At checkout, the sales clerk showed us how to fold the jacket into one of the side pockets. Pretty amazing.
