Thanks for all your opinions, i have thought about what francesca said, and i slightly agree about the military thing... So i will look into the jackets and see what i can find.

^Nah, the military vibe is part of what makes it so cool.

I very much agree! Pucci_mama, it's great! But be wary if you have boobs

pucci, i don't know if you're committed to the white, but balenciaga fw05 has a few jackets that i'm just so gaga over!


i really like this one because even though it has military detailing, it's more evenly spaced out..the white one you posted IS amazing, i do really like it, but it just seems so top-heavy with the epaulettes...all of the attention is paid to the top area, while this one has more evenly distributed awesomeness.


i LOVE this one, i just HATE the fur! if you can find one like this without the fur (unless you like fur) i'd go for it, the shape is beautiful and flattering.

i am a HUGE fan of coats, military style too, so i hope i'm not being overpowering...the one you picked is truly beautiful, but i just think for your money you can do a bit better, get a better silhouette. lily looks just really stiff in that image..the coat is just a bit too stylised, too kitschy.

sorry if i annoy!

I just gave you karma points francesca! Thanks for your help!

I have almost no boobs maarit, so no worries on that!

I really love WHITE, in everything! already have a white coat wich is very much like the Balenciaga one but ive had it for a few seasons and it's starting to be a bit outworn!

I like the beige one (exept the colour,beige makes me washed out, me thinks!)

The black one is a bit to loose for my liking, i like a slim silhouette.

And the fur! I am agaist fur.. but it does look good don't it?

I also know that black is going to be a BIG thing for Autum, so white might seem out of place as well. Not that i really care that much, if i really love something:p

Yea, can you post a more detailed picture?

From this one, though, I would also say no...

I think it could be cute--but very trendy so yay only if it is not too expensive

So Balenciaga long white coat, yay or nay?

I like it..

Pucci, yay on the necklace if worn with Miu Miu-ish or Marni-ish stuff.

Faust, my gut feeling says nay.
