I think you should really keep this one for yourself! Of course you know your taste best, but I think this one has a lot of potential if you don't like it exactly as is - you can get rid of the thin sleeve layer on the inside, because the silhouette as a short sleeved coat would be much more interesting. =)

sasha said...

me, too, if: my bust is, like, a not-even-32, and my shoulder width also pretty narrow, so if you think this would then be huge, don't add me in (don't want to take away from someone it would really fit). however, if it would be roomy-but-good, count me in...
