its the only petite coat i can find that i like and standard ones leave me with dangly sleeves!

I like the colour...think the shape would date though

Sleeves look HUGE.

Shape at the front would actually annoy me. And you'd get a draught! [gimmer]

It is very nice indeed.

Not sure if I agree with Cybil or not on the shape issue. However, if it isn't mega dollars then I would be tempted to just to have a gorgeous coat to love for one a/w season

I dont like it

cheeryface Mon 28-Sep-09 18:26:53

yes i was considering the draft issue myself!

It's currently in my ASOS basket, can't decide whether to go for it or not, I love the colour, but am not sure the shape will suit me, I need to try it on. Is nice in grey too.

i normally buy something new each year if funds allow so not really bothered about the dating style issue

I quite like it. Especially with jeans. Though on reflection the sleeves might annoy me.

cheeryface Mon 28-Sep-09 18:29:16

ye the grey is lovely but blue normally suits me better being blonde (well i think)

i thought the sleeves might be good when trying to get gloves on, i found last years coat a faff because the gloves seemed to get all bunched up at the wrist

are curved hems in?
i liek em

Themasterandmargaritas Mon 28-Sep-09 18:32:24

yes true about the gloves, I never give them much thought. I'm with you on the colour, it's lovely.

I think it looks a bit cheap those huge buttons
