This gorgeous coat makes me VERY happy. The subtle texture of the close-cropped pelt makes this an unusual and elegant alternative to the other sheepskin coats featured here. With the mink trim and hood, you've cranked it up into the realm of the luxurious and pampered. I don't think I can overstate how fabulous the mink feels stroking your neck. The clasp height at the neckline is JUST right -- you're neither choked nor neglected.
I'm a trim, but solid 5'6", and the XS fits really well. At first, it felt a little tight in the chest and upper back, but I think the coat stretched out for me just where I needed it to, because now it feels perfect. The only issue with the XS is that the sleeves are just a tad shorter than I'd wish -- maybe a half an inch.
I have gotten SO many oohs and ahs over this coat. It makes for a trim, stylish silhouette and just looks dynamite. It's probably not the best choice for the arctic tundra, but I'm amazed at how warm it keeps me in the teens and twenties. With an open neck, I can see this taking me through the spring and then back into the fall. Because it's lightweight, you'll never feel like a moose or a fluffy, stuffed teddy bear. And you can absolutely dress this piece up and down.
