On a recent Target run, I detoured into the clothing department to see if they had any interesting pieces from the designer collabs — there were still a few pieces there but fairly picked through. There was one of these coats left, in a size M, and I decided to bring it home to see if it had any promise in my wardrobe.

For the price point, it’s a nice piece — the lining is decent, it’s solidly constructed, and fits TTS in a slightly oversized way that is current. I’m trying it on here with black pants and boots just to get a sense of the overall proportion on me. It’s a long coat and may be a little awkward on someone short. The double breasted style is not usually my favorite on my body type, but this version is a better fit than most.

I’m not sure I have a need for it in my already-bountiful outerwear collection, especially since I bought the Bernardo coat at NAS this year (pic 5), but I at least wanted to share my impressions in case anyone else is eyeing it.

I tried and rejected the dress that Christina tried — it was a nice print but the neckline and sleeves were not for me. And a faux leather skirt was fun but not quite right either — although it made me want a good faux leather skirt!
