Rated 5 out of 5Â by retroglam I feel so fancy!
This is the second Elevenses coat I've owned, and I have to say, they make a statement. Elevenses has the best version of 'beige' I have ever seen; it's more of a peachy blush hue that feels sort of Old World French to me. The wool isn't stiff - it has a sweater-y, marled-wool feel, but still keeps me warm in this 40 degree winter weather. I'm 5'2 and it hits me at the knees and fits true to size. Not something I'd grab while wearing sweat pants, but it certainly dresses up a pair of jeans and makes me feel like a Hollywood starlet when dolled up. I love it. The only deduction this coat gets is the design. The back hem tends to pull up a bit due (I think) to being stitched under. But nothing the occasional tug won't fix. All in all, I hardly ever buy items full priced at Anthro, but this was an exception. Elevenses coats are so worth it.

I was excited to try this coat, it looks so gorgeous and lux in the picture. However, it didn't work out for me. The beige material is like a thick felt, so it has no real structure to it - it is just flimsy and looks like a sack once on. It'll fold, and wrinkle, etc.... The mark of a great coat is structure, and this was just flimsy.
I did find it ran TTS - I am a true size 8 and this fit me in 8 (however, I would have ordered petite).
