Keep or Return? The Parka.

Somewhere between Stoke and Newport I managed to lose my khaki parka, also known as my favourite and bestest coat ever. I nabbed this one off of Dorothy Perkins in the sale and on the surface it sounded brilliant; fur hood, detachable shearling, etc. etc. But on receiving it I'm not so sure. It seems a little... voluminous all over and I'm afraid if I go down a size I will also end up with a lot shorter arms. So I'm putting it out to you readers; keep or return? Please excuse the awful pictures too; my room is dark so shutter speed is slow!

(and i hope this message made sense since english is not my first language.)

  4. Hmm - I see what you mean about the voluminocity (nothing quite like making up a word...). I like the waist nippage but am not keen on the puffage at the bottom xx

  5. The puffiness is pretty horrible, honestly.
