This coat is ideal for those mid 40s to mid 50s days. I never really noticed this coat before it hit sale - but couldn't resist the beautiful patterns and soft material (Cotton, spandex). I was a bit disappointed that the lining is viscose - but at the sale price - I think it is worth the money. The buttons are quite beautiful (see closeup shot) - however, because they are so heavy I can easily see them falling off - so I'll be very careful and take care to keep the spare in a place I can easily find it.
Fit: I am normally an eight/ten in coats - the eight is plenty comfortable. The only portion of this coat that is fitted at all is the shoulders and arms - so if you have broader shoulders or bigger arms, I'd recommend ordering true to size - otherwise, size down.

┬áby quinncx so happy this runs large!
I cannot begin to express how much I love this coat! I fell in love when I saw it , but I never thought I would be its proud owner because number sized items are not my friend at Anthro. When I read that folks thought it ran two sizes two big, I decided to go ahead and order the 14, never thinking it would fit but knowing I had to try. The coat arrived yesterday and I was delighted to discover that it did run big and would be making its home with me. The coat buttons easily, though when moving around it does sometimes develop a bit of a pull over the bust- I plan to add a snap in between the widely spaced 2nd and 3rd buttons to address this potential problem. I'm a size 18 apple but have plenty of space in the waist on this piece.

I bought this coat during the Black Friday 20% off sale. In person, the pattern is more blended. There is not as much contrast between the colors of the medallions and the background colors. I wish it was a little more fitted on the sides.
I wear an 8/10 and bought the 8. It fits perfectly in the arms and shoulders, but the overall body is very roomy. I fear that sizing down would limit my mobility. I love the feel of this fabric. To me, it just screams "vintage winter." However when my husband saw it on me, he said, "What is that, a housecoat?". Insert crestfallen face.
Even though the fit is a little big, I am keeping this coat. It makes me feel sassy and different, in a good way. Plus, it is incredibly cozy and comfortable.
