I think the collar is a bit too big, and I don't like the buttons, but I am tempted.

Bargain and functional?

MairzyDoats Wed 02-Oct-13 18:08:19

Ooh yes, I do! How is it frivolous though? Because it's white? I'd have thought the waterproof-ness (new word) would make it quite stain resistant...

toastandmarmiterocks Wed 02-Oct-13 18:11:15

why is that frivolous? It looks pretty functional to me...

Colour makes it daft not frivolous (sorry!),but as a functional item,if you don't mind it a bit grubby,it's a good reduction.

Wrong bloody link. blush

That one I actually did buy.

LaTrucha Wed 02-Oct-13 18:13:59

This one.

I know everyone is going to hate it. They always do when I post on here!

MairzyDoats Wed 02-Oct-13 18:22:00

That is a very different coat from the first one! grin

I like it though! I'd have spilled something down it within 5 minutes, but if you can bear to see it soiled then go for it.

When I saw the words 'glamour' and 'princess',I hardly dared look tbh.

But,it's lovely smile

Love it grin

LaTrucha Wed 02-Oct-13 18:36:57

Oh my goodness. I've chosen something some other people like (faints in surprise)

LividofLondon Wed 02-Oct-13 18:50:34

It's not something I would wear but I don't dislike it smile Gwan get it grin

LaTrucha Wed 02-Oct-13 19:04:21

Might just order itjust to see if that collar is really too big .....

Beltsandbraces Wed 02-Oct-13 19:06:25

Good idea wink

It's a bit Audrey Hepburn isn't it. I think it could be really nice.

dexter73 Wed 02-Oct-13 19:15:57

It's nice but I would change the buttons.

LaTrucha Wed 02-Oct-13 19:20:34

It should have covered buttons

LaTrucha Wed 02-Oct-13 20:37:37

Ok. Having had resounding success I am now going to ruin it. I was getting a bit worried about combining that coat with the shoes and bags I have so I started looking at other coats, I know the one I'm going to link to is very different, but it it frivolous.

What do you think?

Ok if you are at 6th form college. Possibly.

BadgersRetreat Wed 02-Oct-13 20:41:26

no the fur one looks cheap - buy the cream one and get a gorgeous scarf to go with it

i bought three new pashminas at lunchtime for $22. Feeling v smug

Beltsandbraces Wed 02-Oct-13 20:41:56

I used to have one similar to that. Wore it until it was pretty much threadbare. Does that give you an idea to my opinion? wink

LumpySpacePrincessOhMyGlob Wed 02-Oct-13 20:42:46

Love the first one, particularly the collar. Dislike the second intensely. It gives me fur balls just looking at it.

LaTrucha Wed 02-Oct-13 20:44:52

All this is guided by my love of a black boucle swing coat i wore to death while at 6th form college. I don't wear black anymore, and I know I will live most of the winter in my oh-so-practical North Face parka, but I do fancy a pretty, fun coat. I admit, it does look cheap.

What is really getting me is the handbag...... I don't know what I would do now I think of it.

KittieCat Wed 02-Oct-13 20:49:52

I LOVE the first one. It's a beautiful, stylish coat. I so couldn't be trusted with such a light colour but I want it.

I like the buttons, too, they're make it that bit more retro.

The H&M one looks cheap and not at all stylish to me...

The 60s looking one is lovely. Collar not too's part of it's beauty.
