It’s my first Chloe.  I was going to ask you if I should keep it but I have made my mind up.

‘It’s not very practical is it though?  A coat with short sleeves?’ I can hear my mum’s voice on the other end of the phone (and she hasn’t even rung yet but I’m certain she will feel the need to impart motherly wisdom on this one…).  But I know the answer.  Its oversized wonderfulness can accommodate a leather jacket underneath for those truly cold days when bare arms cannot be endured, even in the name of fashion.

No excuses.  She’s a keeper.

    Great piece!!! of course, you should keep this… It’s more than a coat… It’s also a cape you can wear over everything! Megia !!! Wear it -with health- as we say in Greece 🙂

      I love that it’s not just black (although in saying that I’ve never actually owned a black coat in my entire life!)

    Perfect! classic and can be worn seasons to come. good choice!
    I’m moving to Glasgow next week and i’m thinking a coat like this would definitely come in handy!.. where would you recommend to pick up a good winter coat in Glasgow? everyone has been telling me Zara is my best bet?

      I’d say they’re right – Zara or across the street to House of Fraser – although there are some really great finds in TK Maxx

      Can’t wait to wear it either M! Can be a bit hit and miss in there but when you find a piece like this it’s well worth the rummage 😉

    Usually the word ‘Chloe’ convinces me a new item in by wardrobe is a keeper tbh.!
