This gorgeous coat is a Collection piece. It will run sizes 0-8. However another CS said it will run 0-14. No record of petite availability. To debut in Sept in 2 stores.
The rhinestone collar Evelyn coat (17509) retails for...wait, my heart raced and I had to remove my sweater (hot flash!) when I heard the retail of $800. The coat only comes in golden amber.
I cannot wait to see this in person. It could have some oomph, like the honey glaze color. Or, it could be a washed out color, like the peach jersey strapless dress. The photoshoot for the Lookbook was washed out, so who knows.
The measurements on the 0 are around 37" for the bust and 40" for the low hip, if I recall correctly. The rep pointed out a couple of times that this is an overcoat and can be worn over multiple layers. I understood the point, but based on those measurements it seems to be vanity sized so I got a 0. From the pic it appears to be double-breasted & have an A-line shape. Not my favorites, but I'm blinded by the rhinestones.
I have to try it so I pre-ordered it. (Help me, lawd!) I'm not jumping up and down about anything in the Lookbook or that has been online. There are a couple basics I want, but this was the only showstopper for me so I need to see it. I'm not sure if it will show up in a store near me and I didn't want to take a risk that it will/won't. I've learned that it's better to get now & decide later, provided it's not final sale. Otherwise someone will come and swoop what I want. I know some of you have great luck w/popbacks, but my timing is not so lucky matching my size & wants w/availability.
ETA 7/29 - I pre-ordered on 7/24 and still missed the boat. Amazing.
"Thank you for your recent pre-order for our French Serge Evelyn Coat. I apologize, but due to the popularity of this item, demand has exceeded our expectations and we are unable to fulfill your order."
For those of you skimming and not really reading...I ordered this coat on 7/24 and wrote this post on 7/27 or so. On 7/29 I got that email saying I'm not getting the coat via pre-order. This sucks. But of course, not getting it could be good. It's definitely less $800-good for me. Anyway...maybe the color is bad and I wouldn't like it. Frickety frack!
I contacted my online PS and she said the only sizes left are maybe a 6 or an 8. Actually, she said she "could possibly get me a 6 or 8." It smacked of an odd drug deal for a fraction of a second but nevermind as neither of those sizes will work according to the measurements.
I have to trust in the Crewniverse that this isn't for me. Oh-- the newest words added to the vocab list are comp alt, crewinverse and patinalicious.
8/25 ETA: I KNEW they were overlighting/overexposing the images during the Lookbook shoot. Here are the online images. I'm so glad that I didn't get this.
p.s. This is the last day for free shipping on Dulken & Derrick flowers.
