I really liked the look of this coat online. It appeared to have a great shape. I didn't notice that it had knit sleeves until after I ordered it. The knit sleeves are a deal-breaker for wet, Northwest Washington winters, but after seeing the coat in person, I probably wouldn't have kept it even if the sleeves had been more weatherproof. The cut is weird: really high waisted with quite a bit more flare at the bottom than is shown in the picture (maybe due to the fact that the fabric is really stiff and doesn't hang right?) To sum up: this coat is a cute idea that didn't quite come off successfully.

This is a very stylish coat with a unique look, particularly the asymmetrical hem. Looks great with skinny jeans and boots. It has a trim fit across the bust so if you are large-busted, order a size up. The snaps are larger and more prominent than they appear on the website photo. I can't wait until the weather gets cool enough to wear it.
