    1. Dearest NiniNotes, this coat would be perfect for you! The cut is generous, but I quite like this style to be slightly oversized. Good luck!

  14. I agree with Hair Mess that no one does neutrals like you, MaiTai. That ensemble looks lovely on you.

    I like your sunglasses ( like they say in the magazines, "just seen"). Is this the pair from your beach post of Jan 5. I've been meaning to ask you the brand and style. Can you share?

    1. Happy you like the look, thanks so much! The sunglasses are by Fendi, the model is FS447. They came out in 2008, so it might be difficult to find them. Please let me know if you manage to locate a source.. I need to restock :-)

  16. Dear MaiTai,

    It is said imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so please, my dear, be most flattered. My coat arrived today and I adore it. I concur that it runs true to size. Thank you so much for bringing this to my attention, and I will think of you and thank you silently each time I enjoy wearing it. It's nice to have a raincoat that is a bit dressier.
