And it's sold out, agh!

I am so tired of being grumpy and rained on. Please help me to find the perfect hooded yellow mac.

How about this?

rootypig Tue 14-May-13 21:48:04

I was just looking at that! it is lovely. But is its lack of shininess taking away the fun? basically I want to be five

cute (from a 12 up)

MrsLettuce Tue 14-May-13 22:50:21

Land's End

MrsLettuce Tue 14-May-13 22:55:17

also not yellow
one last one

rootypig Tue 14-May-13 22:56:43

ooh thanks for all your help!

I really like the Superdry one but am a bit shock at the price

the ASOS one is so nice and shiny but I am nearly 30 so probably shouldn't have ears hmm
tho DD is only 6mo so too young to be embarrassed grin
in all seriousness it's only showerproof, and despite mostly wanting to be five also really really want to by dryyyyyyy

sodding weather

so far Petit Bateau is best though would also require some creative accounting

<<weeps over perfect cheap sold out one>>

blue, great lining

rootypig Tue 14-May-13 23:04:51

oh that Yumi one is lovely! why isn't it yellow <<wails>>

MrsLettuce Tue 14-May-13 23:22:00

It's perfect. You'll be 'off' the yellow one sooner than you think. Yellow wellies? I had some just like that.

Hello rootypig smile

You see, what you want is this, but it seems to be only available in gingham online. Could be some left in store?

Otherwise, the gingham one is lovely...

rootypig Tue 14-May-13 23:59:04

Hello tether! how are you? sorry for dropping off the face of the earth....babies.... in fact she is screaming now hmm (at her father)

<<concentrates on coats>>

yes that one is nice and shiny! maybe I will be a loon and email topshop to ask

tethersend Wed 15-May-13 20:38:13

Yy, babies- bless the little leeches.

Mine is much the same :-/

One of the mums at school pick up had exactly what you're after on today... Want me to ask her where she got it and make more of a twat of myself? grin

rootypig Wed 15-May-13 22:36:06

yes please!!!! is this a Hackney thing or what?

mine is the same, still waking twice a night, I am a broken woman sad

Ilovemydogandmydoglovesme Wed 15-May-13 23:08:31

This one is lovely from Seasalt. Definitely waterproof.

rootypig Thu 16-May-13 20:25:13

Oh yes dogloves, it is lovely! but I am concerned by the description of it as mustard.... am after something really bright. It's lovely in all other respects though....praps will order it and see what it's like.

There's this one on ebay but the price is daft.

foxysocks Thu 16-May-13 20:29:12

my friend has that seasalt one, it's really nice

rootypig Thu 16-May-13 20:33:45

oh tell me about it foxy! is it bright? the lower pictures they give it looks very mustardy
