Um … sorry, what? I was distracted, gazing at this lovely young lady’s face, and didn’t notice the, well, unfortunate coat she’s wearing. The coat combines the look of short sleeves (bad idea for a coat … for anything other than a t-shirt, really) with bulbous ‘puffy shoulders’ (another bad idea reminiscient of those gosh-awful frocks we always see in Jane Austen movies).
I’m wanting to love this…but it’s not happening. I usually love anything and everything with puff sleeves, but for me, I think it is the silhouette that doesn’t seem flattering. Love the color, love the hardware, love the length, love the what seams to be creamy texture. Perhaps it is the sweatery sleeves that limit it’s wearability. I don’t know. I would love to see it from a different angle. The woman however could wear brown wrapping paper and look incredible.
She is lovely. Love the color. Love the closures. Know the puffy sleeve idea is no no no good. I do like the idea of knit sleeves with the boiled wool body–this would be perfect for out here in Portland (Pac NW) where we rarely need a super heavy coat or jacket.
the colour is perfect, and the neutral palette looks good with her red bag. at first i thought it was a knit sweater underneath a short sleeved coat. i think it’s ingenious for a pulled together casual look. i am so envious– i want this coat! does anyone know who makes it? btw, this blog is the best!
She is beautiful, but the coat is not. There is absolutely no shape to it! It’s like she’s wearing a wool “paper bag”. If it would only come in a little on the sides or something… I agree that the sleeves are a fun touch.
