I'm a bit bored with mine now as I wore it lots last winter. Also agree it's not the greatest quality but then it is very cheap. Prefer my Lily and Lionel blue animal print one - but then I did pay ££ for that.
But I too have seen plenty of people in London wearing it and (when they've put together the rest of their outfit well) looking fine. Think animal print is pretty much a 'classic' now.
