Bought: Red Guess Military Walker

What: Red GUESS Military Walker (a sort of refashioned pea coat)

Winners (Front Street location)

$149.99, pre-tax

This coat is Big. Not the size, but the look. It's a deep poppy red, has oversized buttons, and a big black belt buckle (mine is different than pictured), puff sleeves, and a funnel neck. That's a lot of design on one coat, especially when its on a 5'3" frame.

I love it, though - everything from the flat black buttons to the red leopard-print lining. However, I feel best in it when worn with sheer black stockings and black patent pumps. The minimal volume on the bottom sets off the coat perfectly. But, when I put it on a pair of jeans and flats with the coat, I feel like it's swallowing me up.

I love it but its not an everyday wear coat. It will be the perfect coat to keep me warm to/from some holiday parties. And I bought a simple black wool coat as well, of course.
