Please help! I cannot decide between these two coats. I got my LOFT wool swing coat in melange blue and in XXSP but then I found this houndstooth petite friendly coat last Sunday at H & M. Why oh why would I try it on and have to like it? So I was forced to get it...
Coat: H & M Belted Wool Coat- size 2
Shoes: Ann Taylor Porcini Pumps- size 5 (walrus color HERE)
Ann Taylor and LOFT are having a 30% off Friends and Family sale starting on 11/16-11/21 which I know we have all heard about:) Click here to sign up for EBATES for an additonal 3% back on each store (and yes I will get credit if you sign up)! Click here if you want the AT/LOFT coupon.

I really like this H & M wool blend coat because it's not too heavy for me. I don't like heavy coats especially since it's unecessary for where I live. But I do need coats since it does get really chilly at night and I always run colder.
But I have to say, the belt does make the coat quite cute...or am I just overly excited? The grey and white color and houndstooth print is what I love most. I don't have anything like it and it's just cute!
Here is the back of the coat...I am a little suspect about the pleather belt breaking- then what will I do? Price on this coat is $69.50! Ouch! For a H & M coat?
Christian Louboutin pumps. Man were they expensive but sooo totally worth it! I wear it with everything! I told hubby if there really is a Santa Claus, a bone color pair of CL's will be sitting under our tree this year..LOL I'm just kidding, I don't want another pair (or do I?)- it's too expensive. I will start with one for now:)
ExtraPetite for trying it on when LOFT ran their $75 coat special, I was able to see it on a fellow petite since there were NO coats in my local LOFT for me to see. I usually don't like buying things w/out trying it on first but luckily this one fit!
The quality is really nice- most LOFT items are:)
I love the unique color of melange blue but it seems more like a casual coat for me. Would I really wear it to work?
Would it be wrong for me to keep both? This is a total random thought but I just noticed that piece of paper on the ground in the background- what the heck is that?
Here is a Wool fushcia double breasted coat from GAP I bought last year and literally have worn once or twice. The size is XSP so if anyone is interested, I will be posting on my blog sale. The sleeves fit perfectly! I have been neglecting my blog sale because I haven't had time to post any new items.
Forever 21 has its issues but I did try on some coats recently and really loved this classical tweed coat. It fit really nicely but the sleeves are a bit too long- I am starting to see a trend in coat sleeves always being too long for me. I also really liked this grey cropped trench coat. Both were super adorable on but since, I already have these two news ones I am debating on, I had to pass up but now I am kind of regretting it..LOL
Here is a quick video to show you both coats on. Since pictures are one dimensional, this gives you a good frame of reference. Also- I compared both coats quality, price and fit!
HELP me decide! Keep both, return one or return both?
