After weighing up all your wonderful views, I nearly went for ordering both and then making my decision. A few remarks helped me to make my mind up and go for it - even though I feel huge remorse/guilt at the initial outlay, but I did the math and if I went for 4 reasonably high st priced coats at £80 to £120 for the next four years then I would be spending the same - girlynomics don't ya know!
Teawithonesugarplease helpfully pointed out that wool was warmer, which helped me to remember I loathe the smell of wet wool and also certain wools really irritate me. This was a minus for the Fahri one. One comment from bemebe said the See by Chloe one was love at first sight, ditto this was my reaction, one point for this one. Faux Fuschia said would it be wrong to get both - yes it would, so no scores here! From one naughty Australian to another, Penny Dreadful Vintage gave a full analysis of the issue and provided me with the sensible conclusion on price, so one point to Fahri.
At one all, I turned to Mrs Fab, the utterings were as follows 'I'd choose the first one, but then I always go for the bargain option so would end up with the NF one, then spend the next six months wishing I had bought the Chloe. I am a very complicated person you know.' You know what she was right. Let's face it I loved the See by Chloe one, I particularly like the chain detail. Love the collar and cut and the colour. I also discovered it was £30 less than I thought (hardly a saving, but every bit helps) but the Fahri still held up on price. So...
When the DHL delivery man arrived first thing this morning I ripped the box open and put the purchase on. You will note I haven't got dressed or showered. Therefore this is a slovenly in my nightie look but at least the bed was made.
Oh joy, now excuse me whilst I go and roll around on the bed in it before going to the salon of petit garcon, where a John Terry (Chelsea Football club captain) hairstyle makeover awaits me.
