Dennis Basso Textured Rose Faux Fur Swing Coat w/ Faux Fur Collar
I am a vintage style girl and this jacket is perfect. Love the delicate roses and quality.
Nice fall jacket
I was looking for something to wear casually with pants and jeans and thought this was a very cute jacket. I normally wear a size medium in all QVC clothing but this was available in large. I gave it a try and it fits like a swing coat. It has more of a raglan sleeve so the shoulders were not a fit issue. The sleeves are long but can easily roll up to a perfect wrist length. I ordered the ivory hoping that it wouldn't be a bright white and it's a soft beige yes, like a dirty poodle, but that's what I was looking for. I love this jacket and anticipate that it will see a lot of wear this fall. The faux fur is softer than a bunny and feels great. What a treat!
I so love this coat. It fits perfect and oh so soft I love the rose texture. I will be taking it ti Italy next month. Wish they had more colors I would order more This coat is very chic!
beautiful but not the collar
received this today and will return it most likely. i sized down and i still think its too large. i feel like i'm wearing a bathrobe. the coat was beautiful but the thing that is making me send it back is the collar. i do not like stand up collars. i tried to fold the collar over but it wouldn't stay. i did like the swing style. still i thought it looked sloppy on. loved the color and the pockets on the inside. the lining was gorgeous. the very top button was not reinforced so i'm wondering how long before that would fall off. it also needs to have a snap next to it if there is no button on the inside. the other 2 buttons had the smaller buttons on the inside. haven't made up my mind yet but just not liking the collar. it looks cheap may have looked better if the stand up collar was of the same fur as the coat. will decide in the next few days but like i said it is a beautiful coat. if i do decide to keep it i think i still need a smaller size even though i sized down so not sure if its worth the trouble and cost to exchange this one or just look for a different style.
Not Quite Long Enough
I am 5'8" so my problem will not apply to everyone. However, I found this jacket to be not quite long enough. Because the hem stopped at the top of my hips, it emphasized the size of my hips rather than skimming over them as I had hoped. Otherwise, I loved the weight and softness of the coat and really regretted that I needed to return.
Very cute & warm!
I have this coat in Cherry. I am 5'1" and wear a size S or XS. It is light weight and very warm. I also have A 86539 in grey but this is shorter in length which is very flattering for the petite woman.
I WEAR THIS IN SUNNY FLORIDA!
This coat is beautiful especially in the Cherry color. I wear it here in Florida because it is extremely lightweight, but warm, lux and yummy! This really is the only fur that I can comfortably wear here in our Winter climate. I did have to buy it one size smaller than my usual size,(see Chest measurements) and I still have room to spare. It is a very easy fit since it is a swing coat. It still gets 5 stars even though the fur bag that it came in was ripped and unusable. Please don't discontinue this winner Dennis Basso!!! At this point this coat has probably been purchased and returned and purchased again so many times that these things happen-like the loose buttons also. I still love it!
Lightweight but cozy warm
This is a lighter thinner faux, but surprisingly warm. Stylish, just love it. I bought the ivory color, it has dimensional color due to the texture. This is a great car coat, the thickness and length make it comfortable.
This is a beautiful coat. I like that it is not as formal as some. It can be worn with jeans or dress-up. I ordered the 1X olive, and my husband who knows nothing about fashion even said it was pretty.
nice coat, but ivory, not so much
It's my first Basso coat, and I think it is quite well-made. I will need to return for a smaller size as true to size was too large. Word to the wise, the ivory is NOT the color shown online, and on TV it seemed much whiter than the one I received. Think dirty whitish poodle and that's the ivory. I had hoped for something winter white-ish, so I'll also switch colors.
I just got the coat today nicest D.B. coat yet have 5 . Got it in cherry WOW what a nice color and feel not too heavy. But went buy the reviews. It doesn't run large.... I all ways buy D.B. in large this was so small had to send it bk reordered in same color but larger size.... LOVE THE COAT BEST EVER
It's Cute But....
I liked the textured rose design of the body of this jacket but when I saw the collar, I decided to return this jacket. I thought the collar looked kind of "ratty" looking.
