Because Size Really Does Matter...

In my possession...
this beautifully soft cashmere wool, camel colored winter coat.

It is certainly a classic...
And the camel color has been revived for this season...Fall 2010...


It has received many views,
and has even received a few hearts.
It is constructed of beautiful fabric.

And is of a very classic trench coat/wrap design...
But, what is missing?

A size label...

Sooo...I've answered several questions on-line about the quality of the fabric...

Such as...
Is there pilling??


None at the beltline...
None on the elbows of the sleeves....


But what about the size?

This is an age old problem in women's fashion.

Our men know what size they are...
They are a 42 Reg...
or a 44 Short...
There is no question about exactly what size they are.


But women's clothing is different...
I can wear a range of sizes.

So when asked about my Vintage clothing on Etsy...
Well...I can measure to the best of my ability...


 And I can show you what it looks like on me...
(do you see my helper by my side?!)


But...girls...
Wouldn't it be nice if we knew exactly what size we should order on-line,
or the size to grab as we are heading into the dresssing room?

Take care,
~Natalie
