Help needed to find coat- vague details included!

I am looking to find a coat I saw worn by a lady on a train today. I know, I know, I should have asked but I did not have the opportunity and probably would have bottled it anyway. I am googling but thought many MN heads are definitely better than my one!

Details I can remember:

1. Cream in colour
2. Large fake (I assume) fur collar
3. Fitted 'bodice' (is that even the right word?!) double breasted (I'm hazy on this, I might be wrong)
4. Subtly flared, pleated-ish 'skirt' bit
5. Gold coloured buttons and buckle on belt. They were printed with what I assume to be the designer's/brand's/ name- 2 names, the last of which was long. I thought it looked Karen Millen-esque but the surname was way longer than Millen.
6. Wool blend type material.
7: bloody lovely!

If anyone can find this enigma of a coat I shall be forever in awe and forever grateful! Unless it's Chanel or similar then I shall be forever sad!

This obviously isn't the one, but is it the right sort of style?

Reiss Franscesca is the nearest I can see. Cheaper is one by Coast. More is a blush one by Miu Miu at Marches Fashion. Just think how grubby it will get and dry cleaning bills! Go Camel!

Thank you!

pantsalive it was shorter and no fur on collars/skirt but otherwise yes, close!

bojorojo ohhhhh I know re the colour- I was hoping when I located it they'd have a darker option! Off to look at your suggestions now.

I have a cream coat and it's my pride and joy. It's an absolute bitch to wear on public transport and I'm pretty much bankrupted by the dry cleaning bills but it is soooo worth it

Good luck op! Enjoy yours!

Dammit I meant no fur on cuffs! (Got the old collars and cuffs mixed up there)

queenbean thanks- I think I may be giving up on this short lived search though!
