I think I love it, but am wondering if I could pull it off (am 39, 5ft 5 and a size 8) as it's quite a statement. It'll probably be a long term investment - I gave birth by C Section 5 weeks ago so I'm currently bumbling around in lovely tracksuit bottoms.
I tried it on in Other Stories yesterday and it's such good quality and cut so well. Just wondering how I could style it if I ever get any semblance of style back ...?
I saw that coat on a blog recently, and am personally not a fan. I like pea coats a lot, but think that one is too fancy and distinctive. I know I would get fed up of it really quickly, whereas I have a plain navy pea coat from years back which i still love and wear. I would only buy it if it was one of many coats I had to choose from rather than my “main” coat.
Hmm, that's a good point. It probably wouldn't be my main winter coat (I have a short quilted/fur hood Zara coat) but I'd wear it with smart dresses and heels. It feels slightly too expensive for an occasional cost although I'd get around 50 pounds off with discounts and a gift card. Or maybe I'll risk it and see if I can get it in a sale ...
Hmmm. It could look costume-y or it could look fab. If you love it, I think you should buy it, but, I would think that being slightly more "out there" its prime contender for the sale. Perhaps the pp who saw it in a blog could link to it so you could see it being styled?
(I think it'd look lovely with high chunky boots and tight jeans. But the last thing I wanted to wear with a baby was heels!)
I think it's lovely - the stripey top makes it looks more sailor-ey on the site. Things that I spot and want to buy because I love them I'll usually wear for years to come, in spite of the general advice not to buy anything on a whim.
Would look lovely with comfy short tube shirts and tights or leggings.
