Ann Taylor Petite Plush Wool Cordial Coat in XXSP
This coat is completely sold out online. I haven't seen any petite sizes in stores near me.
Front view of this coat is very boxy. Absolutely no cinching on the waist. Upper right picture I was trying to show how wide this coat is by pulling one side in for a nicer fit of my body. It will need to wrap over a lot more. I supposed to can re-sew the buttons to be a little farther from the edge, but not enough to make it look more fit. Lower left picture, I was using my left hand to cinch in to my waist. See how much bigger it is? The buttons are hidden and the button holes are as well, as shown in the lower right picture. Please click on the pictures to see bigger image.
Here is how it looks opened. Sorry the wind was furious this morning. It doesn't look that bad opened.
The back view
-- Very soft wool. When I took it out of the package, it was like holding a kitten. Very cashmere like, but its 100% wool.
-- Very nice camel color. I have been on the outlook for a camel coat this winter and thought this might be it. But unfortunately it's way too big and boxy on me.
-- Sleeve length is perfect on me.
-- Boxy as I mentioned above.
-- I don't like the position of the pockets. Think about how you would look with your hands in those pockets. I couldn't model it because the pockets were closed, but I can assure you that you would look like you are stuck in a permanent shrugging position.
Verdict: Return. (Let me know quickly if you want this coat, otherwise, it's going back to the store. It will probably fit someone one to two size bigger than me.)
