Damn it, I should have asked her where her coat was from! Can you identify it from my waffle?

Right, I initially thought it was Cath Kidston because it was that lovely mid blue and it also had white dots all over it (but I've now seen her dots were much smaller than CK). It was in that material that some of the Cath Kidston bags are in, the stuff you could probably just wipe over, like the vinyl you used to cover tables with in the old days!

The style was like a fitted mac, that came mid thigh. It looked like it had a hood that was detachable. The pockets at the front (side) were slanted. So although it looked like it would be a CK, there were differences in the ones I've seen online to tell me it wasn't.

I want it!!

Boden. Betcha

BitsyVonMuffling Sun 17-Jul-11 17:43:24

Or actually, my friend has a very similar sounding one from Primark...

GregoryPeck Sun 17-Jul-11 17:44:44

Is it john Lewis?

nicole333 Sun 17-Jul-11 18:01:26

Thanks ladies. I've just checked Boden and JL and it's not on there. If it is Primark then I'm gutted as I don't have one close to me and I've just looked on the website, that isn't really a website!

I was thinking maybe Joules, but again, nothing on the web. If only I knew I could look out for it on ebay.

What is that stuff called that the CK bags are made out of? Some ebayers refer to it as oil cloth? Whatever it is, it's perfect for dog walking!!

acsec Sun 17-Jul-11 18:03:54

I think it's called oilskin or oil cloth?

nicole333 Sun 17-Jul-11 18:15:13

I've done a search on both oilcloth and oilskin and zilch! I'm such a fool, I should've just asked her!

brookeslay Sun 17-Jul-11 19:28:20

like this ? there is also one without the hood which is autumn /winter 2010 0n ebay.

nicole333 Sun 17-Jul-11 19:59:59

That is the one I was likening it to yes. But the differences are quite noticeable in that the CK one is boxy in shape, has different shaped pockets and the spots are large.

Mine (see? I own it already!!) is subtly fitted, has slanted pockets and small dots. But the same colour and material.

My search gets more and more bizarre!

brookeslay Mon 18-Jul-11 13:35:19

defintely a stylish dog. I found a lovely mac on Yoox but cloth not oil cloth, the search goes on. I did think maybe those sailing places like seasalt might do something similar

grin at city pup.

I just found that one when googling.

like this

nicole333 Mon 18-Jul-11 15:16:02

I did look at Seasalt and there are some similar ones, but not the one! On further research, it looks very much like the CK mini dot design, which in turn is very similar to that Per Una one, but it's not it. Booo!

I've googled myself senseless. I don't know where else to look.

Much appreciate your help. I'm thinking about what my DH would do if he came home to find my dog dressed like citypup! grin

MummysTooTightToMention Mon 18-Jul-11 16:32:28

or any of these...

nicole333 Mon 18-Jul-11 16:34:57

Sadly no, but thankyou for trying. It really is just like the Cath Kidston mini dot design in Peacock blue.

rc8911 Mon 18-Jul-11 18:25:27

Hmmm, my Mum got a similar sounding one from Sainsburys. It was less oilskin and more cagoule-like with a detachable hood. She bought it about 2 months ago so not sure if it would still be in stock. I'm not totally convinced its the one you're looking for but might be worth a ring?

lucykate Mon 18-Jul-11 22:04:40

noa noa?

WillPenn Tue 19-Jul-11 01:23:43

Avoca ?

nicole333 Tue 19-Jul-11 10:36:24

Still appreciating your work ladies, but alas, they are not my jacket.

Oil cloth material
CK mini dot in Peacock blue
Mid thigh length
Detachable hood
Slanted front/side pockets
Fitted but no belt, just a natural cut

Maybe she's had it for years, or maybe it's brand new out, or maybe her Gran made it for her?! I don't know, but it sure doesn't want to be found. hmm

brookeslay Tue 19-Jul-11 12:13:17

perhaps contact a company like this to make you one.

applecrumbleandcream Tue 19-Jul-11 20:45:50


It would be easier tracking down the lady! Seriously, is there any chance you will ever see her again to ask her, does she shop at your local shops or have kids at the local school? Might you bump into her again in the future?

nicole333 Wed 20-Jul-11 15:35:35

I think you may be right and I will not let her get away this time!
