do you happen to know if it's sheepskin all inside or just on the collar?

cheers
I know, I just received mine yesterday! It's sheepskin all over, and on the inside It's really nice, and I am sure I will love it when winter rolls around

This came into my local topshop today, at £58 I couldn't resist it's perfect for the transition from summer to autumn. I think I'm going too wait a couple more months till I get a big full leather shearling jacket.

that's so good to know, sheepskin is super warm, probably warmer than my normal zara winter coat!

loverunway i agree it's not worth it, but if you think that in terms of highstreet prices, if i wanted a real leather, real sheepskin coat it'd probably be the same price anywhere...maybe even a bit more expensive in zara! i don't know, if it's a super warm jacket i might actually consider it!

I've been both zara and warehouse both selling REAL sheepskin jackets for under £200
No way will I be paying topshops prices!! There are so many similar cheaper versions out there.

yep topshop just think because it's them and because its been in a few magazines they can be ridiculous..no way is it worth that i'd say £150 max.

and i think the prices in the US are a lot more expensive btw

If anyone wanted that Alexa lace dress there is an exact copy here: http://www.queenswardrobe.com/goods_...?goodsIdx=1723 haha I don't know how they get away with it it's so similar!

And I really still want that camel coat. A random camel coat is currently going for £200 on eBay just cos it's camel ! I'm annoyed because I have always loved the colour camel and now it's everywhere and everyone will be wearing it and it's getting ridiculous surely you can find a cheap wool camel coat somewhere!? Hahah

I was thinking about the shearling jacket too and the price threw me off. I know that it's real leather/shearling/etc and the design is great and so different to a lot of other leather jackets out there, but 325 pounds is painful especially after the price increase!

An Australian chain store here called Sportsgirl also have a copy of the Alexa dress.
