Really cool coat
Reviewed by Anonymous2 from Boston on Saturday, October 6, 2012
This coat is sooo cute! You will look like a snow bunny in it. haha! But, there are a couple things you should know before you buy it. It is fitted close to the body. It runs a BIT small. I wear a Medium or 8-10 in coats. I ordered the Medium in this coat, and the sizing info said that this Medium is for sizes 10-12. Well, the coat fits me, but it's just shy of being a little tight. So, for those of you who are a size 12, you might want to order the Large. Secondly, the faux leather straps look kind of cheap, which I don't like, but again, the coat as a whole is so stylish, I can ignore that. Also the straps are rather loose fitting around the faux fur, which might eventually annoy me because when wearing it, the cuff straps will probably fall or shift and then they won't be parallel like they are in the picture. I tried fastening the cuff straps one hole tighter but then the cuffs looked weird. And, the collar does NOT look like the picture when fastened!! The photo must have been styled very carefully. In real life, there aren't enough loops holding the collar strap all around the collar; as a result, once fastened, it will shift and ride up. But, the collar still looks really cute without being fastened. Also, this is solidly a "for looks" coat. It's NOT a practical coat for everyday winter wear, or if you spend a lot of time with kids or pets. The straps could get caught on things getting in/out of your car (or riding the bus/subway)...your kids might grab the straps or they'll get caught on things getting your baby in and out of the car seat. This is a fashion forward, slightly dressy coat that would be good for date night, dress-up, or wandering around the snow-flecked city with your husband or girlfriends on the weekends. Finally, I'd like to add that I got the green color and I found it to be true to the color in the picture.
