I Blog, You Decide: Awesome or Awful?

Silk Crepe Ruffle Coat (3.1 Phillip Lim, $1,950)

The first time that I saw this coat, I thought it was incredible.  The second time, I wondered how it would fit.  And the third time, I began to wonder if it would swallow me like a furry Halloween costume.

What do you ladies think?

    I think it would be drastically improved if it weren’t such a ho-hum color.

    The only kind of person I can possible think would look good in this is someone very frail and petite. Like an Olson twin or something.

    Coats with a bit of volume are rarely bad.

    An Olson twin type with either really pale or dark skin could pull it off, I think. That color is hard to pull off for those of us with a skin tone that’s too similar.

    Maybe if you are very tall….with cute skinny jeans and super high heels – the belted comment sounds good too

    My first thought was actually “sad elephant.” Sorry.

    I am madly in love with this coat, and briefly considered becoming homeless for a month to afford it. Personally, I think it would overwhelm someone with a tiny frame, there’s too much fabric on it.

    I think it’s super cute, with a chunky brown leather or sparkly belt. That being said, I can think of like 2 people who can afford this. I’m excited to see if someone could reproduce a more affordable option comparable to this.
