Same as me, right down to the norks - also looking for an identical coat to you by the sound of it! Can't be bothered going from shop to shop either...

! I'm such a lazy shopper, I stop people in the street (like a proper weirdo) when I see someone wearing a coat I like to ask them where they got it from.

lots here

being small and big norked i wouldnt go for double breasted if i were you

topshop petite coats, for 5'2" and under

Thanks nailpolish, dont like any of the petite ones and love the covered button swing coat but its a bit out of my price range at £195.00
What about belted ones do you think they would be ok or am i too short for them?

some more petite coats

i personally dont wear belted coats, but that doesnt mean there is anything wrong with them

im 5'

the red belted coat on the link is nice

TONS here

i LOVE the mustard 60's style coat

The red one is lovely but im a redhead so generally dont do red unless it is a deep red,the white one is gorgous but wouldn't stay white for long with my 2 dc, i think i will look for the white style in a darker colour and pop into dp to check out the red one.
