Sigh. This was on my wish list for awhile so I jumped on it as a LTS. hmmm...not what I expected at all. I wanted it to wear to the office, but it looks entirely too casual and the fit is off as well. I don't understand why it's so slim through the hips and covers your hands? The design is there, had a more substantial fabric been used I may have kept it.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Diva1Donna Belt Is Too Long & Paper Thin Material
I purchased this in blue while it was on lunch special thinking I was getting a stylish lightweight poncho with the look of a jacket when belted. However, it is paper thin and the belt is ridiculously long. has over a foot or two in extra material extra after putting through the belt loops. I think a mistake must have been made in placement of the belt loops when it was made. The belt is basically irregular and not functional unless I take it to a tailor to fix the botched work. Not sure if I want to pay to send this back to QVC or pay to shorten the belt. For the lunchtime price I may just wear without the belt. I would be extremely angry if I had paid the original QVC price of $99.

I really truly wanted to love this. I wanted it to be classy and stylish. Instead, the fabric was terribly wrinkled and draped sloppily. Instead of appearing high fashion, this emulated a shapeless stadium poncho.

I was so excited to find these on a LTS but once I got them I had to return them. Like other Halston styles I've tried, the armholes are cut too small. If I wanted to throw this over anything it may be a tight fit beyond a blouse or t-shirt. I have average arms (size 6) so it's not me and I've experienced the same in other things I've tried from Halston. Also, this coat is a wrinkled mess. There is too much already to figure out when wearing this that I don't want to also have to iron it. I tried washing it according to directions and it didn't help. Even the end caps to the hood string came out - fortunately I found them and they didn't slip through the drain holes in the washer and cause damage. This is a super light, paper thin jacket, perfect for spring rain but there are too many issues to keep them, even at this price.

I didn't know what to expect but I'm very happy with my purchase. I'm short (5'3"), curvy and weigh about 25lbs more than I like. I ordered the medium. It's a bit more casual than I thought it would be - but not too sporty. I would wear it to work (or a sporting event and still look stylish). But looks great with and without the belt. As another reviewer noted, the belt is very long. However, it needs to be so you don't lose it in the fabric of the jacket. I was surprised that I liked the belt. I usually don't belt things but I was able to place it where I liked. I would give 4 1/2 stars because of a small complaint ....the belt is thin and silky smooth material so it twists and doesn't lay flat. I ordered it on lunchtime special and almost wish I bought 2 colors :)
Rated 2 out of 5 by Auk7 Meh...
I've had this on my wish list for a while, so when it became a Lunchtime Special I nearly ordered two, since I was having a hard time deciding on color. I chose the blue, because it seemed more all-seasonal. Now I wish I'd gone for the pink or cream.
I like the concept but this is very thin fabric, and if you wear the blue without the belt it looks like you're about to graduate from high school, missing only a mortarboard and tassel. Still, WITH the belt it looks better, and the fabric definitely repels water. At the LTS price, I'll keep it, but I'm disappointed, since I generally like Halston. The belt is very long--not sure why--and the buckle just weighs it down. I probably will just tie it, and might remove the buckle. But it's not the all-around rain jacket I was hoping for.

I just got this as a late night special. OMG the sleeves were 4" beyond my finger tips. Way too big for this petite girl. plus the length was too long. I was hoping to use this in the Northwest winter but back it goes.
Rated 3 out of 5 by WendyJ Great Idea, but...
Loved the blue color, fabric, style and hood BUT, the sides (like sleeve length) hung below my hands and the underneath part was snug around my hips. Very disappointed because the style is great, but need to have thinner hips to wear comfortably (would fit apple shape vs pear shape). If the sides weren't so long, I would size up. Notice the length on the model - long sides or "sleeves". Hope Halston comes back with a little different cut & I would definitely order it!
