JCrew’s petite and 00 sizes are so inconsistent item to item but I happened upon an amazing deal the other day – an additional 25% on top of the 30% off outerwear sale! – and decided to try the Lady Day Coat in 00.
I feel compelled to write about this coat because it fits perfectly and not just in the arms. I am ~105 and 5’3″ and it’s very hard to get something that fits my upper torso AND isn’t too big on the bottom off the rack. Usually, I just try to steer clear of A-lines altogether. But J.Crew’s Lady Day coat fits like a glove.
It’s VERY snug so I don’t imagine wearing a ton of layers underneath but like all the double-cloth coats, it’s warm and I can get away with a silk shell and and cardigan underneath. The lining isn’t very soft and it’s scrunched together in the sleeves for some reason but overall, the cut and fit are wonderful. I got it in black so it can be a staple in my wardrobe for years to come. Here’s a picture – (I’m standing on my tippy toes because the jeans are hemmed for a pair of platform mary janes).
