It’s been a crazy few months and I apologize for not regularly maintaining the site like I have in the past — but I’m back now. I plan on posting at least once a week again with fresh new ideas, topics, petite clothing finds, and much more.
We recently made the move back to the Pacific Northwest from South Florida. Our time in South Florida was something we’ll never forget — we made lots of amazing friends and had great time — but being back in the Northwest is wonderful. Okay, enough about that, lets talk fashion.
The weather’s been unseasonable warm and dry here for the Northwest. By warm, I don’t exactly mean beach weather, but it’s been really beautiful for Winter. I still needed a new coat though. I bought a classic black wool peacoat from Nordstrom years ago (like, we’re talking ten years ago) that held up like a champ. I love buying classic pieces that I know will last but after ten years, it was time.
I’d been doing my research on coats and knew that Burberry was going to be my final decision. I know they’re expensive but when it comes to classic pieces that I know I’ll wear for years, it’s worth it to me. I read a review from Jean at Extra Petite saying that the Burberry Rushworth coat is a great pick for its “sleek silhouette and funnel collar, with edgier buckle on the underside”. I decided to go for it so I ordered it in a size 2 and picked it up at my local Neiman Marcus. The coat fit perfectly. I love its streamline silhouette and funnel collar (for a little edge and to keep that cold wind off my neck!). The coat is very heavy and exceptionally well made so I have no doubt it will last me for many years to come.
If the Burberry Rushworth isn’t exactly what you’re looking for, I’ve done my research on some other classic wool coats perfect for petite figures below.
