┬áby JustErin Beautiful Colors, Seasonal Confusion
I find this jacket slightly confusing - the rich, beautiful colors seem perfect for attending holiday parties - but this jacket is definitely light weight and more ideal for spring or fall weather.
Fit: I am normally an 8/10 in coats - I ordered the 10 in this - and I am glad I did - as I needed the space of the 10 to comfortably fit my waist and shoulders. I would say true to size for most - unless you are normally in between size up.

This is a beautiful coat! It's extremely flattering, it looks great open with the top buttoned to create lapels. The color is beautiful, very dramatic. I will be wearing it everywhere this winter (: I got it in a size 2, and I'm 5'6" & 125 lbs.

I love Leifsdottir's pieces; they are so expensive but they're always beautiful, well-made, and good long-term keepers. I tried this jacket on in store and instantly fell in love with the color (much more vibrant red in person, especially when you stand under light) and unusual design. The brocade fabric is also fabulous. While it's a lightweight coat and really only meant for special occasions, it was too good to pass up.
As far as fit goes, a size 0 was a bit loose in the waist (I'm about 5'1, 100 lbs, normally wear a size 0 or 25 in most Anthro clothes), but since I was only wearing a thin t-shirt when I tried it on, I don't think the size will be an issue when I wear it out of doors with a heavier top underneath. The lower half of the jacket flares out from the waist, which might be an issue if you're got larger hips.
The jacket in the picture also shows the top buttons buttoned over, but when I tried it on in store, they had it with the buttons folded over backwards to make the coat look double-breasted, which I much prefer. I put this one on my Christmas wish list, but I'm going to be wearing this coat earlier than that to my company's holiday party in a couple of weeks, and whenever I can find the opportunity to wear it. I've already gotten to compliments on this coat, and only then when I was trying on in store!
