so, dear readers, i am wearing a wool coat in august. my friend J was considering this zara coat which sold out online once already. i described to her the fit, quality and sizing so she could consider whether to get it. the e-comm site now has them re-stocked. it's hard to see what something looks online (ie. on a super tall skinny model in stylized pictures), so i donned this coat on early in the morn when there was a nice breeze so i could do a sizing review on it.
first things first. this coat is all shades of awesomesauce. it is so jackie O in cut and structure but the sleeves detailing takes it to a unique level. it's a wool mix, so it will be a great fall coat. the coat is lined. that's a big bonus. such a pet peeve of mine when coats aren't lined. importantly, it is also petite friendly - hitting me right above the knees, i can be prim and proper for work with heels or wear it casually as well with flats. i'm wearing the S here. the XS fit me but i was only wearing a blouse. if i want to layer in the fall, i had to size up.
