Rare Coat Review

I have a bit of a confession to make: I am actually obsessed with Smallville. I think I'm one of the only people left in the world who still watches that show, but oh well.
Anyway, like with everything else in the world, I do draw fashion inspiration from there. I am in love with Chloe's look and have been for the last few seasons. She has smart-casual all sussed out and looks stylish, yet professional, at all times.
One of her major staples is amazing jackets. She has loads and looks fabulous in them all, and I've always wanteed sume cute jacketes like the ones she wears on the show.


Since it's getting colder here in England, I'm putting together my Autumn/Winter wishlist and adorable coats and jackets are top of the list. So when Rare offered to send me something, I immediately went to the jackets and coats section and picked out this gorgeous coat.



I think this coat is perfect for the current weather we're having. I love the trech coat feel to it: it makes me feel cooler than I am. I've actually always wanted a short trench, but hadn't found the perfect one, so this is perfect and exactly what I've been looking for.
I also love the ruched sleeves: they definitely give it a unique touch. They really make it stand out from all the other coats out there. I've been wearing it all week and it's really comfortable and looks great when I wear it.

I'm afriad I'm not still watching but I have the first season on dvd and I absolutely adore Chloe's style!

I lvoe your jacket - it definitely catches the professional yet quirky look chloe and you both have!

It has a clear Burberry influence over it on the ruffled sleeves and the way it drapes down. You're right indeed. A good trench coat is almost always a right buy that will usually last a lifetime.
