I bought a wool cropped peacoat (single breasted) and its bright bright blue. I loved it in the shop, but at home its sooooo bright.

The fit is very flattering to me and I didn't want a black coat...

sounds lovely. link? you can always wear navy scarf and hat to tone it down a bit.

as fishie says,a scarf or something just to tone it down a bit - hey, it's nearly your wedding day ! grin

I got a bright clue coat last year (Boden hmm) and I always get lots of compliments when I wear it - though I do find it a bit distinctive iyswim - saw someone in town wearing the same one the other day and felt an irrational urge to hide. It seems to go with everything colour-wise

I went out in it and my friend said it looked nice. I don't have an exact photo of the coat tbh, its from a random shop. Um.

Like this: ?ie=UTF8&node=&m=A2BO0OYVBKIQJM&keywords=&mnSBrand=core&size=9&rh=n%3A54189031%2Cp%5F94%3AShort&page =2

But in this colour: 51&storeId=12556&categoryId=113758&parent_category_rn=42325&productId=763443&langId=-1

So purpley blue.
