One of the many,many items I picked up last night at a sale was this jacket. I am not sure what to think of it. Everyone in the store thought it looked great.

A couple of concerns: it is really light weight. I will wear it, likely, this month only. And againin Spring. That's all the "season" we have for a coat as light as this.

This colour is really trendy: too trendy? Will it look heavy come Spring? (The red I would consider *mine* and would wear no matter what the fashion is not as dark as this.)

It is a funny length. I kind of wish it were shorter--more bomberish--so I am having a hard time judging whether it is OK.

The flaps are the style of the jacket--no scarves layered outside this thing for me. But tucking in seems frumpy. And looking at the pictures, the lapels do not seem as big as they seem in real life. I liked them bigger.

What do you fabbers think? I am not sure I can *see* this properly at all! Thanks!
