While I am definitely keeping my Jack BB Dakota coat, I'm also being tempted by these two recent petite-friendly finds. First is the A|X Fitted Peacoat in XS:
I was pretty impressed by how slim this fits! The sleeves are a bit long but not so long that I'd have to get alterations. The length of course is longer on me, but I dare say that it actually fits even closer to the body on me that it does on the model. It retails for $185, now on sale for $149 and A|X has a free shipping and $50 off $150 purchase with code 50FORHER which ends on 12/15. They also offer free return shipping or returns to store as well.
Second is the Banana Republic Wool Ruffle Coat in Sugar Plum, size XXSP:
I got it on a whim because it was on sale at the time with an extra 40% off, making it about ~$100. I didn't expect too much but as it turns out I'm also tempted to keep this one! I love the eggplant purple, and while the coat isn't as slim-fitting as my Jack BB Dakota, the fit is not too bad overall and is good for throwing over any amount of layers underneath.
Do I need all these coats, especially in CA weather? Probably not. But I sure do WANT them all lol. And of course I still have one more coat in olive coming in the mail from J.Crew, courtesy of PAG. If that one fits well too, I really don't know what I'm going to do!
Sorry I didn't have any time to take actual modeling pics... maybe I will do a collage of all my winter coat acquisitions when everything gets here! :)
