CE by Cristina Ehrlich Houndstooth Coat
Pretty coat, but...
This coat fits true to size, but like so many others have mentioned, there is a strong chemical smell. I aired it out and gave it plenty of time for the chemical smell to leave, but it never did. For that reason, I decided to return the coat. Just couldn't take the smell and airing out did nothing for me. Too bad because it was a pretty coat!
Love this Coat!
Great coat -- a little fitted so if you've between sizes, or full busted, you may want to go up a size.
Colors are beautiful (vivid red and medium gray). I would love to have this in a shorter version and more colors. Good value and quality -- especially if you got it for the lunchtime special price!
Cute, But Undecided
Love the color and print, the fit however is what has me on the fence. I was concerned that the small would be too big, but I was shocked it fit - sort of. It fits in the bodice, but as the last Q Member pointed out, it's sort of unstructured on me as well in the waist. Seems to have a lot of extra fabric in the back from the waist down, but it's not what I would say super flattering - the extra full fabric is just 'there' and kind of boxy. I haven't decided if this is the coat for me, but the price was unbeatable as a Lunchtime Special. The coat didn't bowl me over, but it is well made. It may be just the perfect coat fit wise for someone... time will tell if it's a keeper.
Hoped it would be modern and fresh looking, but to me it was more frumpy. I definitely had the correct size for me, just wish it was more fitted through the waist. Also a little too busy of a print for my taste. Great price though, and high quality.
Beautiful, cheery, coat
I purchased this in size small; I can easily wear a big chunky sweater underneath when it's real cold outside. I am 38 D and could have easily worn the X-tra small.
Highly recommend this coat. It did have a chemical smell when I took it out of the package.. I hung it outside an thankfuly that took care of the odor.
Lovely Well Made Coat
I am 5'10, usually wear a size medium or medium tall (when available) from retailers such as JCPenney and Eddie Bauer. I purchased this coat in a size medium based on the garment measurements provided. The coat is beautifully made and fits as though it was tailored to my body. The sleeve length is perfect for me. The size medium accommodates multiple layers yet doesn't look sloppy if I wear it over a blouse or tee. The price, including shipping and handling was more than fair for this lovely coat.
Oh! so pretty!!!
I just rec'd my new coat and I am so glad I made this purchase. It is absolutely very pretty and I am going to really enjoy wearing it. Ladies, don't be hesitant about this one - it is too pretty to pass up.
This Coat is Amazing
This coat is truly beautiful. It is bright so it would not be for someone who likes to blend in. You will be noticed when wearing the coat. There was no chemical smell to my coat and the sleeves were not too long but I can see how they are on the longer side. It would be worth having the sleeves hemmed by a tailor if necessary. I live in a large city and I don't think anyone would believe that I paid under $100 for the coat. I wear a size small and ordered a small and it fits perfect. The coat would look fabulous with a grey scarf and riding boots. You won't be sorry with this one!
THIS is the kind of coat I would look at longingly at the top department stores. The one that I don't even dare to turn over the price tag because I know it's more than my rent! But THIS is the coat that I can own and flaunt and feel like a million bucks in. SO happy to have made this purchase! Thanks Cristina, for making this striking coat attainable! Yay! (Can you tell I'm happy to own this coat?)
The color blend on this coat is beautiful. It brightens the face and presents a unique style.The fit is just right for me.It flatters and disguises what it should. I will enjoy wearing this up until the real cold weather comes in.
I liked the idea of the grey and red houndstooth and it looked cute on the presentation. However, when I got it home, the fabric had a very strong chemical smell that did not seem to dissipate when I hung it out to "air out". The sleeves from shoulder to elbow are very narrow. It was just comfortable with a thin blouse underneath. No way could I wear a winter sweater or suite jacket under it. The rest of the coat had plenty of room for winter wear underneath. Sadly, for these reasons I returned it. Probably won't try this brand again.
This is really a nice coat, mid-weight and the red is bright. It would look great, in my opinion, on a younger person who could carry this style off better, but on me it just didn't feel right so I am returning it.
