Hi, I am on a quest for a nice coat. I live and work in NYC so there are plenty of places to get a coat, but I don't have tons of free time to check out all the possible stores. I've been wearing a knee lenght belted "puffy" coat from Jones NY. I bought and kept it because I really needed it, but it is not perfect. It is a little past the knee, which is just a bit too long (I am 5'3" and want it to hit at the knee) but the part that drives me crazy is that it is button down and the bottom buttons pop open when I sit and often when I walk. Then the bottom of the coat flares open. I walk EVERYWHERE. I need a better coat!! I do have a bubble that seems to affect everything I wear. If it is not a good shape for a bubble, I won't be able to wear it and will look much larger than I am... I am usually a size 6. So anyway I was looking at these... http://www.revolveclothing.com/DisplayProduct.jsp?product=MACK-WO75&c=Mackage http://www.revolveclothing.com/DisplayProduct.jsp?product=MACK-WO72&c=Mackage http://www.jcrew.com/catalog/product.jhtml?id=prod79203241&catId=cat270216 not sure of color but I think brown, maybe violet. With thinsulate. I love the sea salt but this coat will be on the subway, train, and walking in bad weather so will get too dirty http://www.jcrew.com/catalog/product.jhtml?id=prod89297241&catId=cat270216 in camel (but I do want it to hit at the knee so this might be too short) I am so totally open to suggestions. I am so sick of buying coats!!! I guess I need to spend more or something but I always seem to settle for the wrong coat and there is always some problem (not warm enough, not flattering for a lot of my clothes, not professional enough for work, too long, too short, and now - buttons open as I walk!!!
