gorgeous but runs huge!
I absolutely love this parka, the design and quality is very good. I tried it on at my local FP store, and initially tried on the medium which was huuuuuge and I am by no means a small person. Im about about 175lbs with a large chest and hips, so I was convinced that the small would be too small but I was pleasantly surprised! the small fit perfectly, I can still layer under it and have no problems at all. it draws in at the right place and accentuates my waist nicely. I ended up buying the parka bc it was just so cute and warm. So size down, a lot! may not work for slender people just bc it runs so large.
Oversized Embroidered Military Parka
I loved the pictures of this online and had this in my basket but wasn't sure what size to order and was hesitating on buying it. I saw it while in an FP store and instantly fell in love. The embroidery is so cute and the tie at the waist makes it so that you can customize the fit to a more flattering look. I know it's supposed to be oversized but it runs very big so even though I am 5'10 and a size 6 and I'm usually a small in FP, I went with an XS in this jacket for more of a custom look. This is a perfect year-round parka to wear with layers underneath in the winter or just to throw on in the summer on a chilly night.
on the fence
i really love this but i don't think i'm going to keep it. i am petite and normally wear an XS in all FP. I'm 5'3", and this is just too much. the large pockets on the front are overwhelming and a little unflattering, and even though the jacket is adjustable, on me it exaggerates the shape and makes it look even worse. the embroidery is lovely and it's a nicely made jacket, it's just not made for someone small. if you're average to tall, this will probably look a lot better on you, but it's not good for us shorties. it's a real bummer because i've been wanting a new military parka and this would seemed perfect on the site, but for the price it's not worth it since i can't really say that i love it ON ME.
