Secret's out

I'm really specific about what coat I want to buy (red wool/twill and short) but Victoria's Secret is confusing me with all these other gorgeous long coats that are on clearance AND have an additional 50% off.

I want this coat, which is nice enough right?


But it looks so boring compared to this ...


... and this ...


... and this!


Ok I know that last one isn't a long coat. I really love it but it's only available in black and I have a longer black coat that's almost exactly like it so I can't get this with a clear conscience. If they had it in red, that would totally be perfect. But of course they don't ...

UPDATE! So I stopped being fussy and just bought the red twill peacoat plus this really cool bomber sweater below. Now the thing with this 50% off thing they have going is that it's only for ONE sweater or coat. So when I first put in my order, I got half off the peacoat but not the bomber sweater, which brought my total up to roughly $118 (includes shipping). That got me thinking ... what if I make 2 separate orders? By splitting my order in two, I was able to get 50% off both pieces, and only had to take a hit for extra shipping. Both orders add up to just $99.98, which means I got up to $20 more in savings! So if you're ordering more than one piece, try this trick and get more bang for your buck!

I know, I really want to bite because the prices are just *too* good- but how is the quality and the fit? I've never tried a coat from VS before...

x dee - they're really so pretty aren't they? I love coats in girly styles!

chloe - I've never ordered a coat from VS before but I've seen my friend wear hers (she got that beautiful camel coat in the fourth pic) and it seems to fit quite well. At these prices, it's the best time to experiment!

oooh that sweater is sooo you babe! I actually ordered the leather ruffle jacket (in two colors as I will be returning one) and split them in two orders as well.
Good call on the red jacket too! I didn't get any coats given that I have soo many...sigh.. ;-)
