Yellow Coat anyone

I have been eyeing the Lady Day coat in Warm Chartreuse because of the lovely and happy color. Browsing the web, I found a DIY coat made by Beaute J’adore…I like how she is able to sew her own clothes using quality material! Take a look at her blog. My favorite picture from her blog below.  Copyrights Beaute J’adore.

Review: Lady Day Coat in pretty blue

A quick review of the lady day coat from J.Crew in a pretty vibrant blue (I cannot recall name and it is not available online anymore).  The first picture below shows the texture but does not give the color justice.  I’d say the gorgeous blue is consistent with the second picture.

Pros: pretty color, nice fit, reduced price

 Cons: final sale item

Material: mixture of wool and polyester.  I’d say the wool is same as the double-cloth coat

Fit: TTS to slightly small.  The fit is tighter than the double-cloth as the lady day accentuates the waist more.  I went TTS but was advised after my order to size up by the J.Crew Aficionada community. I would say to go with your larger coat size at the crew.  I am OK with my true size but could have gone up as well.  This was final sale so no return.

Sissi’s verdict: keeper! Do you agree? Please share!
