The de la Renta's are wonderful, but closer into my budget range the Petrus floral and the Ocariz houndstooth have a lot of love in them. Great shapes.

Hi CC on a sunny tuesday here in Germany.
So many pretty coats.. I like directly the first one ;)
The shape looks somehow cute ;)

Haute World said...

Fantastic selection! I love how you combined the classic patterns like tartans with the brighter crazier ones. I really like the Ann Demeulemeester one, and if I had more courage, I'd probably go for the Balenciaga resort coat too ;-)

Wacky Jacky & Silly Willy said...

Love this post! Thanks for sharing. I think I would have to go for the Michael Kors - edgy enough but can wear more than one season!

One wintery one with flowers could be nice. But I get so bored so easily it would be a hazard.

I love patterns and the fact that there are so many options for outerwear is perfect because everyone can see the pattern of the coat.
