I looked at that online the other day during my hunt for "Nikki Alexander's" green coat from Silent Witness... I sighed and gave up

BonyM Mon 24-Sep-07 17:26:11

I'm sure my Nan used to have one similar...

Umm, same coat from a different poster the other day. Hers was in another colour though.

I like the shape, but colour is a bit icky!

nailpolish Mon 24-Sep-07 17:27:54

nailpolish Mon 24-Sep-07 17:35:13

nailpolish Mon 24-Sep-07 17:35:42

contentiouscat Mon 24-Sep-07 17:35:57

Some of the "yummy mummies" at school wear coat like these for the school run and look nice. I wouldnt even attempt it id just look like an older, frumpier, fatter version of me at school which is when I last wore a coat like thisgrin

WelshBoris Mon 24-Sep-07 17:36:11

I'm flitty and young but not a red head

WelshBoris Mon 24-Sep-07 17:36:35

What does flitty mean?

I'm thinking of flighty blush

nailpolish Mon 24-Sep-07 17:36:45

but there are HUNDREDS OF ncier coats in the shops
i think even a yum mum would have to be v yum to look good

NineUnlikelyTales Mon 24-Sep-07 17:37:03

I like it but would look silly in it.

sugarmatches Mon 24-Sep-07 17:37:06

I have seen similar styles done much better. The colour is just not flattering on anyone.

nailpolish Mon 24-Sep-07 17:37:19

flitty is scottish for someone who skips downt the street

MrsBadger Mon 24-Sep-07 17:38:56

nailpolish Mon 24-Sep-07 17:39:25
