What bra size are you?

as a fashion statement it's nice but doen't look like it will keep you warm

depends on quality as well

cheapo sort of but not really similar at all

for that kind of money i'd want something that wouldn't date by this time next week.

Blimey Libra, you're forward aren't least invite the OP for a drink first!

My opinion on coat...all your make up will rub off on fancy neck

I don't like it tbh, sorry: if you have anything more than a flat chest it will be pretty unforgiving. I do like pale grey coats a lot though.

I think it is gorgeous but doubt it will last you more than one season.

ok I love the neck and colour but think it's shapeless and if you are anything more than a B cup it's going to look horrible on you.

I think all french connection stuff is of excellent quality, so definately worth the money. Personally, I am not too keen on it just because I don;t like jackets that you have to wear fastened - like to have the option of having it open, without feeling there is extra swathes of fabric.

However, I think in RL it prob looks great on - with a really nice Xbody bag.

i was swooning over that jacket myself, then i saw it in real life in the shop and decided it wouldnt be at all warm and it did look a little bit shapeless.

you need to be flat chested to wear that
adn wouldnt keep the draughts out either!

Am rather well endowed in the norkal area, so it's probably a no-no. But I do love it.

Make-up all over your collar

Dry-cleaners every week.

No brainer.

I tried it on in grey, it's much nicer in rl.

Sadly it doesn't suit bigger norks or I would have had it. DP thought it was v.v. nice.

It was on sale in littlewoods direct recently too for £100
