Decided to do a bit of Christmas shopping at the mall I hadn't been there in probably over a year since the last Harry Potter party. I am one of those people I don't get a new coat for as long as my old one still works for me. I have a coat that I still wear and I got it back in my 7th grade year in Junior High School. It is huge on me now but I figured it is still around and it does fit so why not?
I also have a coat that a friend got for me for Christmas a few years ago but back then I was extremely bigger then I am now and it is more like a potatoe sack on me. So strolling through Target I came about these coats and thought....wow I like them they look pretty nice. My mom had me try one on my only big problem with Target is they mainly sell skinny girl things and I am not a skinny girl. No matter how much weight I've lost a size 15 in girls jeans isn't considered 'skinny'.
So I grabbed the biggest size they had in black and gave it a try. The material is wonderful it's not too heavy but it's heavy enough. It feels like an expensive leather coat honestly. Unfortuantly the black one didn't fit quite right because my downfall is I have boobs. So I switched to the toffee color they had three in the sizes I was trying on. The toffee color actually looks great on me I was surprised and the picture from the website doesn't do it justice.
I also found out trying on the same coat, the same size and in the same color they all fit differently. After purchasing it for 30% off which is great it would have been $40 I wore it around the rest of the mall trip. I actually got too hot and that never happened in my old coats. It's slimming and form fitting which is nice.
I don't feel like I'm in an over sized shirt and I don't look like a huge cow which is nice for once. Since I only just got it today I can't give it a perfect rating because I don't know how long lasting it will be but I can update later. We have many months of winter left and plenty of time to find out how it stands up.
