I am looking for a full length, hooded padded/quilted coat - pref black or dark brown for myself, that isn't too Michelin mannish (I am short, but v v cold.)I keep seeing women in lovely looking coats on the tube but daren't ask them where they are from for fear of sounding like a weird-stalker-tube-person. Any recommendations v v much appreciated.
I love my 3/4 length North Face one! It's black and I bought it last year and lived in it. I am only 5ft1, and it is not too Michellin man like - it does give you a waist (or would if I wasn't pregnant)
I have just bought the Patagonia down with it parka. I wore it on school run yesterday with just a t shirt underneath and was very snuggly. They have it in stock with shoponthebeach for £160. I paid £170 for it last week bugger it! It isn't bulky at all either.

I chickened out of the sequins in the end; there really isn't anywhere in my country bumpkin existence I could justify buying it for. Last sequinned dress I had, I wore it to a party at a 'country club,' which turned out to be a pub in Cheltenham town centre with a sign outside proudly proclaiming 'all major sports events televised here.' The shame.
