Dennis Basso Textured Rosette Faux Fur A-line Coat
Not an easy fix!!
Even though I liked this coat, I was shocked to realized that the plum dye bled on to my ivory Dooney & Bourke!!! I tried to clean it with different things but it didn't come off. Unless you carry a dark color handbag, be aware!! How come Mr. Basso & QVC don't pay attention to this type of things?
Cozy and flattering
Purchased the grey last winter. Great to wear for really cold days when wearing dress and heels for worship services or fine dining. Decided to purchase in black. Felt I could size down, and it did fit, but I could not cuff the sleeves as much. So it seemed too short in the sleeves. I could have kept and had a smaller cuff but seemed sleeves too short that way. I have returned and have already purchased in the same size I purchased last year for the cold winter dressy days.
Love it ~!
This is the most comfortable, lightweight and warm coat I've worn. The temps here have been in the single digits and the coat kept me totally warm. Ive received a lot of complements on it and people have asked where I purchased it.
Love this coat
Love this coat...bought one in black last year, loved it so much I bought another in gray. It is lightweight, yet very warm. I'm never cold even when the temperatures dip to freezing. Sleeves are long, but I roll them up and it makes a cuff that isn't too bulky. I get complements all the time on the black one. I usually wear a large. The large and medium both fit me fine, but prefer the fit with the large size.
Not sure on this one!
I ordered the white in a medium, as small was sold out. I usually wear a size 10 and thought I would still be o.k. Not so. It literally hung on me! I could have put two people in it. Returned. Not sure I would even order a small now, after looking at it on my body. Not much if any shape to this and it sure doesn't look like it is figure-flattering on my 5'5" frame. I am curvy and need something with a waist. No waist to be found on this coat. No problem with the buttons, just wished the rest of it was that good.
Do not buy if you are short
I was so excited to get this in ivory. I returned it today. I was absolutely swimming in it. The sleeves were super long, and I could NOT get the weird hook buttons undone period. Absolute disappointing nightmare.
Just received this jacket in. Lg. fit was perfect, and the jacket is just beautiful! I ordered the plum color , and it just will go with almost anything. You can wear this with jeans, and heels, or dressed up for some serious evening out. I wish I could order in the grey, but their are no longer available. I would give this a ten out of ten!!!!
Always get great complements when I wear this coat. It is warmer than you would think for the light weight this coat has.
Very poor made. I was very disappointed in Dennis for this item because he put out such good work. This coat was so poorly made.
This is my fourth Dennis Basso coat I have purchased from QVC. They are all beautiful coats, but this one by far is my favorite! I purchased it last year in ivory and it gets compliments EVERY time I wear it out. This coat is elegant, unique and very flattering. It looks so expensive and feminine. I love the "upscale" way I feel when I wear it. My husband thinks it looks great as well. I do own a real fur coat, but find myself wearing THIS coat everywhere!! It can be dressed up or down depending on what is worn with it. You can't go wrong with this purchase. Well done Dennis!
So Im not quite sure why this was all the rave...I ordered a 2x in cream and although it fit, I looked like a polar bear. The design/fabric was really gorgeous but it had no shape and no wow factor AND its major thin so its more of a jacket NOT a coat. Sent back!
