oh my pink squall parka is here

£28 including postage

god it is so warm and it does not make me look like a pillow - in fact I look rather lovely if I do say so myself

I have never been able to afford a coat that feels like it will keep me warm before now; I no longer fear the approaching winter

you are my new favourite person

if ever you need anything I am completely in your debt

MarsLady Fri 14-Sep-07 02:02:14

What kind of pink? Pale or deep and luscious and why wasn't I told?

Cappuccino Fri 14-Sep-07 10:21:35

here it is spread the joy

now also available in purple but not in my size

glad you are pleased
cod tipped me off re their raincoat so am paying it forward, as it were

(in exchange you can tell me how to make a squealing overtired 4wk old sleep...)

Very, very dubious of the elasticated waist thingy

hmm I too am dubious of the elasticated waist.

You'd look good in that one though cappuccino, next to a stuffed penguin

NDPWantsANewCamera Fri 14-Sep-07 13:14:41

Hmmm, still not convinced, but that shape is better

MamaG Fri 14-Sep-07 13:15:03

have to be honest cod, I'm not sure of that two tone look

MrsBadger Fri 14-Sep-07 13:15:59

so long as you do not haul the elastic in tis ok

other one without elastic

NDPWantsANewCamera Fri 14-Sep-07 13:19:21

I'm still trying to decide between the rain mac and the commuter coat @ LE. The commuter coat looks more flattering as it has darts and looks more fitted, but the mac on is in nicer colours.

MrsBadger Fri 14-Sep-07 13:29:13

this commuter coat?
dry clean only and not waterproof - run a mile

or this one?
tie belt not for me, also pricey
is much warmer though as has zip-out quilty liner - I inherited an ancient version of it from my mum and it was fab

NDPWantsANewCamera Fri 14-Sep-07 13:32:08

No, the one in the sale. Hang on

This one or \link{ arent=178654&cgrfnbr=178654&mdiv=OSwm&cat_level=prod}

NDPWantsANewCamera Fri 14-Sep-07 13:32:29

cock. try again

2nd one

MamaG Fri 14-Sep-07 13:33:09

I like boht ndp

NDPWantsANewCamera Fri 14-Sep-07 13:34:16

me too, but unsure about the baby blue in the commuter one.

MamaG Fri 14-Sep-07 13:35:36

I liked the oliuve green in the first one

but I am quite conservative

ladymac Fri 14-Sep-07 13:36:04

What, pray tell, is a 'flattering princess seam'?

NDPWantsANewCamera Fri 14-Sep-07 13:36:57

I liked the olive too, but fear it may be a little plain

ladymac Fri 14-Sep-07 13:39:54

I also love Mrs B because she was the only one who read the manual that went with the car seat.

ladymac Fri 14-Sep-07 13:40:51

So now we know where to tuck our straps.

MamaG Fri 14-Sep-07 13:40:52

but NDP, isn't plain good for a coat? Will go with most things then

NDPWantsANewCamera Fri 14-Sep-07 13:41:32

Yes. I suppose I worry that olive may look a bit like one of those granny pac-a-mac things
