I promised pics of this Jack by BB Dakota Romaine Plush Coat quite a while ago:
But never got around to it because I kept waiting to find time to take it to my tailor to get the sleeves shortened. But as you have it, as soon as I found time, I also found out that her shop is closed until next week! So here are some "pre-" tailoring pics anyway, just pretend that the sleeves are appropriately shortened :)
As Jen from FrmHeadToToe showed in her video, the collar can be worn either up or down (and I'm so thrilled that it fits her too!). Unless I happen to be freezing, I'll most likely be wearing it down more often.
Like I mentioned before, other than the sleeves which currently swallow up my entire hand, I'm pretty happy with the overall fit and don't plan on getting anything else altered. And while the material is a mix of polyester, viscose and spandex without any wool, it's warm enough for SoCal winters and the ~$50 I spent on it is more than reasonable I think.
Interestingly enough, I spotted the exact same coat currently being sold for $128 on Urban Outfitters! And as a reader Doris pointed out, this coat can also be found on Modcloth for $70, but the best deal seems to be at Gliks.com for $48 (where it comes in Ivory, Black and Tan)
I hope you're all having a happy Thanksgiving holiday! No turkey and no Black Friday shopping for me this year (except for online of course!), but I look forward to seeing everyone's spoils! :)
