New Chic Vintage Floral Pleated coat dress review
A fit and flare coat dress is always my best friend for my 5 feet nothing and a quarter petite frame. I really love this Vintage Floral Pleated Single Breasted Womens Coat, the color and shape are just what I am looking for. This beauty is from an online store called NEW CHIC..
This year I changed my shopping strategy. I’m now going to concentrate on quality over quantity. Which is to say I will purchase more high end, iconic pieces to mix with my normal wardrobe. I have to say, I love those mixtures of high and low. This Vintage Floral Pleated Single Breasted Women Coat is only about $34 now, but after I paired it with my new Louis Vuitton bag and that teal fur wrap, the whole outfit looks more polished.
The fabric of this coat dress is pretty thin compared with most winter coats. Although it has a lining to help insulate you from the cold and wind, it is certainly better suited to be a perfect spring or fall coat for us poor folks in Michigan. On average this has been a quite mild winter so far but Mother Nature still likes to show her attitude sometimes. It was much more seasonable the day I took these photos so I wore a sweater underneath to keep me warm. I waited for about 20 days to receive the dress since it is shipped from China. And please note that the sizes you see on the website are also Asian. I wear size 2 or 4, or small in most American clothing but for this dress I ordered size large. The large fits me very well. Now I understand a bit better why my friends mention I’ve gotten fat when I visit them in China!
A couple more things you should know if you want to order this dress for yourself. The fabric is pretty easy to get wrinkled so make sure you have a steamer or iron handy. By the way, I bought an inexpensive steamer a while ago and I use it A LOT! It can really save an outfit that’s been folded and stored or has just arrived in the mail. I also resewed all the buttons on because they were barely attached. And the shipping fee is higher than most of the stores in America. It cost me about $15 to get it here; so keep that in mind.
But overall I am pretty happy with this coat dress. I can see myself wearing this piece very often. Good luck with your shopping and don’t forget to join the linkup party below.
