Journey to the perfect petite winter coat

Its that time of year again..... shopping for new boots, a scarf, gloves and of course the perfect winter coat.  

Today, I thought I would share my journey to my perfect petite winter coat.  Here are some of the coats I tried on and finally the coat I decided would be my winter coat for this year. 

So let's begin......

Pros: Soft blue colour and fabric.
Cons: I felt I wouldn't be able to wear this for work.



New Look Petite £54.99 now in the sale for £41.99
Pros: That I found out New Look do a petite range.
Cons: Slightly too small for me would have needed the size up and quality of the fabric was poor. The internet picture didn't show that the fabric has sparkly flecks.
CC petite £189
Pros: Lovely waffle fabric, collar and waist belt.
Cons: The shade is actually more candy floss pink than pastel pink.


Wallis Petite £65 now in the sale for £45.50
Pros: Lovely bright red colour.
Cons: No waist belt to enhance shape and the funnel neck was uncomfortable.



Dorothy Perkins Petite £59
Pros: Berry colour and removable fur collar.
Cons: Slightly too tight across the chest area even in size up.
Dorothy Perkins Petite £49
Pros: Berry colour and waist belt.
Cons: Waist belt did not add any shape.


Banana Republic Petite £110
Pros: Collar shape, pocket detail and quality of the fabric.

Marks and Spencer Petite £89
Pros: Available in three colours.
Cons: Poor fabric quality for the price of the coat.


BHS Petite Collection £50 now in the sale for £35
Pros: Waist belt and side zip.
Cons: Fabric was very thin so I didn't think it would keep me warm enough.



And finally...... 

The coat I purchased was BHS Petite Collection £69 now in the sale for £55.20
Pros: Lovely soft fabric with gentle checked pattern, collar and waist belt
Cons: It is perfect for me in every way!! :-)
