┬áby JustErin Cute Mild Winter Coat
I swooned over this coat when it appeared online and then was heartbroken that it never appeared in my local store. To my delight it popped up in the sale section - a lonely return.
I love the rivets. I love the plaid. The placement of the pockets and dark blue is quite slimming. The colors are lovely. Simply put this coat is adorable. A bit light weight for my tastes - but would probably keep you warm in 20 to 40 degree weather.
Fit: I am normally an eight/ten in coats - this was my usual medium. I did find it a big snug through the shoulders and back and would likely want to size up to the large. I would recommend sizing up if you have fit issues with shoulders, back or arms.

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby cosmosavoy I had to pick this up because it's gorgeous, but I didn't expect it to look good on me. I'm short (5'3"), but also not rail thin - so coats with no waist generally swallow me up AND make me look pregnant. Super.
This coat, however, somehow managed to be incredibly flattering. The A-line shape creates a cute silhouette that's very feminine. There are not two, but four pockets on the front! (Yep, those beautiful buttons actually do something!)
The coat is made of a very thick wool (pretty heavy coat, actually) and fully lined. The sleeves are long on me, but that's true of all coats. C'est la vie.

The fit of this item was incredibly weird. I ordered a medium bc I was concerned about sleeve length, I am normally a small on top, and this medium was very tight on the shoulders. It was very "fat guy in a little coat" and constricted my movement. The coat itself is quite cute and I was hoping to make it work still, but the bottom also belled out, making it look like a maternity coat. I really don't understand what look they were going for. I am returning the coat.
