Two Beautiful Fall Coats from The French Connection



L to R: "deliver" coat $268.00 & felt bow tie jacket
$268.00

I love love love the first coat. It's the happy medium for the woman like me who can't quite commit to wearing a cape for fear of being called "Black Zorro" by her friends. I also think it would go nicely with anything from skinny jeans to a knee length dress or skirt.

One would have to be a bit more cautious however with the felt jacket. The balloon sleeves and generously sized neck bow are downright poetic but on the wrong person the jacket could go from chic to big-dumb-mustard-clown in the blink of an eye.

I hate the colour of the second one, but I love the look of the big bow in front. If it was in a black, a heather grey, or even a deep red, it might be doable.

The first one however, is fab to the bone :) I think it'd be fantastic, but the sleeves are too short for winter, no? Actually, I take that back. It'd be an excuse to go buy elbow-length kid leather gloves (mmmmm)

That yellow coat is gorgeous, but I agree it can be a bit tricky on some.
