I’m starting to like this style of coat, now that I’m seeing it more often–though it’s spring now, so I’ll probably wait until next fall to make my final decision on a purchase. I have to remark, though, that I had a coat almost exactly like this when I was in sixth grade, 22 or so years ago. I’d like this coat a lot more, actually, if it seemed a bit fresher and not picked so directly from the dustbins of the ’80s.
That coat has a great shape, much like an oversized zip-up hoodie. The oversized buttons are charming and I love her choice of black leather gloves, for a touch of formality. (Woolen mittens might have made the ensemble look seriously hobo.) As for the Uggs, she’s probably running errands-not going on a lunch date. As trite and bulky as they may be, Uggs certainly have their time and place.
