Excellent Coats on Irritated Women (Instagram)

2018 was a tough one for women. But that's over now. Let's start the new year right by celebrating tough ladies staying fabulous, via a new Instagram account called Excellent Coats on Irritated Women.

It started with Nancy Pelosi in that majestic burnt orange Max Mara number:

Progressed to Dolly Parton in her fabled coat of many colors:


And Beyoncé in that white "Formation" number:

Excellent Coats on Irritated Women is not averse to time-travel either, because, apparently, furious women have had excellent taste in coats for many decades now.

Like Angela Davis:

And Dolores Huerta, co-founder of the National Farmworkers Association, looking perfect on a picket line:

Even Liz Taylor being quietly livid in leopard print:

But the true potential of Excellent Coats on Irritated Women is still in the making. The account's creator—writer and comedian Sara Benincasa—says its purpose is to “cope by laughing and possibly by screaming into the void (and then buying a great f**king coat)." She's now asking for irritated everyday women to send in photos of themselves or their loved ones. Specifically, "fabulous wom[e]n (LGBTQ chicks welcome, duh) who you KNOW IN YOUR SOUL [are] pissed off and maybe even enraged.”

The submissions have already begun:

And now there are prizes involved:

If you or someone you know would like to join in this surprisingly fun way to vent, you can send photos to Benincasa via Instagram DM or email: This has all the makings of community morale building at its finest.
