here

a close friend has it which means that I feel like I shouldn't buy it - but thought I'd share it here. She looks great in it too.

she has the red/orange one btw

That does look nice.

Does it have a hood?

hmm bit shapeless though

Thank you! I have been looking for a mac and have just ordered the green patterned one (so don't all come on here saying you think it's 'orrible!)

no hood but she was going to buy a red patent rain hat thing - she is one of those very glam people who can pull such things off!

No, sorry, it looks like a shower curtain. Really sorry dotty.

buy it

land's end coats are fab and last forever even if they are not especially fitted or trendy

Boden have good shiny rainhats atm

Makes me think of the clothes the kids wore in the Sound of Music, you know the ones that sister Maria made from old curtains

Sorry it's not nice

Kerrymumbles Wed 14-Oct-09 11:14:36

YES! That's exactly it VT

The problem with really distinctive coats like that is that you can guarantee the woman down the road with DCs at the same school will get the same. I bought a very loud blue Bodeny spotty coat a few years ago - and then felt like a prat everytime I met the Mum down the road in the same coat. And so did she.

Ah well - twas only £39...

It's fine dotty

Not for me due to lack of hood, but apart from that will brighten up a rainy day.

I have dyed my Boden spotty mac for the same reason Hassled. Washing machine dye-worked really well.
