Ohh yeah, that would be nice. Didn't see any in that colour today though, will have a better look next week.

I have a turqoisey blue from Laura Ashley last year. Good, because it goes with all the browns and aubergines, and its cheerful.

I did try various coats on today, but I was on my own and wasn't 100% sure.

I am normally a black or brown type of person so a bit of colour might take some getting used to.

Was just thinking that rempy.

Hmm I need something a bit more fitted than that I think. I am only short and I think that one would make me look even shorter.

I like this one but too pricey.

Will have a look for some purpple ones then too.

I have tan boots and bag and wear with green coat. I also have a chocolate brown coat which isn't very adventurous but it goes. Go for purple though. If I had the money and didn't have a zillion other coats then thats the colour i would choose

IllegallyBrunette Wed 01-Oct-08 13:16:37

how about this one ??
