Luxe silk-blend velvet duster featuring ruffle detail along one lapel for a sweeping silhouette. Hook-and-eye closures for an easy fit. Hip pockets and silky lining.
I absolutely love this coat, the print is this amazing faux patchwork design (without being too obvious), and it catches the light so beautifully. I feel like a wizard wearing it, and I've already received so many compliments. For a thin piece of velvet, it is quite warm, especially with a sweater underneath, and I can see it being very versatile. However: the asymmetric ruffle that the other two reviews mentioned is present, so it looks better open or with a belt/something cross body, although its not something I mind much. As well, The fasteners are not staples, I quite like them as they're almost invisible, but they are not heavy duty. My only problem with it is that, when I got it, it had quite a few loose threads and a hole under the left arm :( In all, not superbly constructed, but the fabric makes me love it and not care too much...
This print is beautiful and the velvet is uber soft. Yes, I agree with the other reviewer it is asymmetrical in styling, but this is a personal preference on if you must have everything perfectly balanced on each side. For myself I prefer symmetrical and ended up liking this duster anyway. The hook eye closure is not cheap, but quite sturdy. It does fit snug at the shoulders when you close it with the hook eye closures so definitely go up a size if you will be wearing it closed. Overall I love it, and the sale price at New Years definitely made it worth while!
Not so amazing
The material,colors and print are beautiful but the shape is really strange...My size is XS and for the first time at FP the XS is to large for me.The cascade of tissue on the side breaks the style of the coat...the closure is cheap made with small staples.
