New Winter Coat


I am currently obsessing over this adorable winter coat by BB Dakota.  The tiered layers make for a perfect twist on the typical petty coat.  And for a girl with no hips such as I, they give an illusion of curves.  It's simple but fun, in a great versatile shade, and has a classic shape.  What do you look for in a winter coat?

i've spotted a lot of BB Dakota coats this year that i really love - and also a cape ... but i worry with BB Dakota with not holding up too well, i don't think the label makes clothes to withstand everyday usage .. ya know?

Cutest coat I've seen in a LONG time! My favorite winter coat is from Urban Outfitters, and it's black wool . . . a little bit military, a lot girly! I look for dress-like elements (like the one your coat has here!) such as a skirt, ruffles, etc. Pretty!

This coat is so pretty. When I'm looking for a winter coat (and I used to live in Canada so I had plenty) I look for silhouette because I don't want it to be too bulky, of course warm is important too, details because it'll be a regular in the wardrobe and then the fun stuff like color!

this looks so familiar...I think I tried it on in a local store called Habit here in Boston. But, for some reason it might not have been flattering on me. But I love the style and the color! Not sure what I will be looking for in a winter coat...might need to looks at some before deciding.

Super cute! I definitely look for a good fit. You could spend 100s on a coat but if the fit isn't good... what a waste of money right?

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

Get it! I love the shape and ruffles. I like clean lines and a feminine look on coats!

I have the cutest stationary giveaway now (your choice of items!)

Wowie, it's perfect!

LyddieGal said...

That coat is adorable!! I love anything with ruffles, I think.
I tend to gravitate towards pea coats, in bright colors, possibly with furry collars or hoods...

What a cute winter coat! First, I always look for something that fits. Since I am so tiny, I have to find something that would fit me first before consider anything else. I have several skirts from this brand and I do like them
