La Parisienne

I was flipping through the fashion section of the newspaper about a month ago, and I saw a photo of this French Connection Winter Sun Wool Coat (it also comes in pink, blue and camel):
The coat itself is beautiful (although there have been complaints of it being shapeless), but what made me even more excited was that I actually saw this coat being worn by a girl at my school, and I was privately obsessing over it as we both waited for the bus to arrive.  It's made from wool and cashmere-blend, and has the perfect dose of Parisienne-chic, with its romantic ruffle detailing (gorgeous!) and puffed shoulders.  There's also a slight oriental influence with the high collar, crossover curved opening, and pouch pockets.  Add in a dash of military style with the double-breasted buttons, and you've got yourself one stylish winter wonder.

  3. I love it...simply FAB!!!. The front and the button layout is just ...perfect. I think how it shapes on a person depend on the length of the jacket.

  5. That is a really gorgeous coat, and paired with the right accessories/attitude it could be a truly stellar piece! The ruffle is so unusual and I like how it mixes styles with the military buttons and the puffed shoulders. How cool that you saw someone wearing it! And the color choices are fab.

  9. Wow, what a beautiful coat! I love the slightely exaggerated ruffle collars and I would wear it in camel color! Yeah, I'm always on the lookout for cute guys wherever I go too but I usually ignore them when I see them. I have no idea why! I don't want to pay them too much attention since it will make them feel like I'm checking them out. So I do it very discreetly, haha :-) xoxoxoo

  10. What a wonderful find! Stylish and chic. I love it in this color, though I think pink would take away from the style.

  11. I thinkt hat the best word to describe this coat is "chic". Because this coat has a specific style, some unique details and a colro that is enough special to be fashion. The deconstruction of the shoulders in contrast with the stright appearance of the double breast and the collar is amazing!

  14. I love this coat, the fringe at the side is amazing! It's so cool people at your school dare to wear these things. At my school, some people wear really outstanding combinations, one of them is one of my best friends and the other I always see walking in the hallways, loving every single outfit
    Thanks for visiting!
