I like it in black

Would like it much better if it didn't have the belt

LookAtMeGo Mon 23-Nov-15 23:45:08

Tbh I tried it on and didn't have a clue what to do with the belt. My fashionista friend was like 'Tut tut, come here...let me do that for you'.blush

Not what I would wear but I like it.

PeppasNanna Tue 24-Nov-15 00:01:19

I love it!

Really like that, especially in black.

I like it but I love:

Not helpful, sorry

LookAtMeGo Tue 24-Nov-15 00:08:48

That's nice Seeyou, you naughty girl! How would you wear it?

LookAtMeGo Tue 24-Nov-15 00:12:05

I like the gold bar thing on the collar on your link.

LookAtMeGo Tue 24-Nov-15 00:12:32

What is it close up?

Seeyounearertime Tue 24-Nov-15 00:23:55

I think it's just a button sort of deal for when it's closed.

Personally I'd wear with relatively plain skinny jeans and a plain top, almost like the model is wearing it. It has a gorgeous lining so I doubt anything too 'fussy' would go, and the splash of purple makes it pop. IMO.

OH also, I'm not a girl. Or at least not last time I checked. smile

I love it. Its the kind of coat I dream of wearing but I end up looking like a squashed bag of mashed potato every time I try one on (which I do more often than is rational, hoping that fashion physics will have fundamentally changed since the last disastrous attempt).

What is the MN deal of not liking to be called a girl? Are you saying you're male?

LookAtMeGo Tue 24-Nov-15 00:32:10

Maybe it's a regional thing, but down here it just means female. No offence meant.

CarpetDiem Tue 24-Nov-15 00:40:52

lookatme you go girl! Couldn't agree more.

LookAtMeGo Tue 24-Nov-15 00:44:23

Are you being sarcastic carpet? You naughty girl! grin

LookAtMeGo Tue 24-Nov-15 00:45:36

I honestly don't get it. Sorry if being ignorant, and I'm happy to be corrected. I think of myself as a feminist.....

LookAtMeGo Tue 24-Nov-15 00:49:06

Look, sorry if I offended anyone. I'm the most feminist person I know. Yes, I don't read about it, but if you saw my set-up you'd back off majorly, I guarantee you!

LookAtMeGo Tue 24-Nov-15 00:51:45

Tbh the 'you go girl' thing made me think. Yes, I'm black, and it is a term we use.

LookAtMeGo Tue 24-Nov-15 00:52:22

So I'm quite offended if that was meant as a slight

CarpetDiem Tue 24-Nov-15 00:58:41

I honestly don't get it either, you were being friendly & the topic is coats not feminism, ageism or fascism hmm
OP that coat is ok, doesn't look anything special for the price though.
seeyou the coat you posted is slightly Halloween costume.

Thanks, carpet I honestly didn't know what was happening, hence my subsequent posts!

stylist thanks for your post. Not hmm

I really like it, OP! Would go for the plain black - the purple lining makes the other one less versatile and I personally would probably grow tired of it quite quickly.
