OOTD - Custom Made Camel Coat

The life of a petite woman: certainly more difficult when shopping is involved.  I always have the hardest time finding coats and pants that fit properly. This season I was on the hunt for the perfect camel coat and just couldn't find one that didn't make me feel like a child playing dress-up. Thankfully I was turned onto Sumissura, an online retailer that custom makes clothing to fit your individual measurements. Honestly, I was skeptical since this would be my first time experiencing custom-made clothing - but I'm pleasantly surprised! Imagine me, a practically 5 foot nothing gal unwrapping a camel coat that fits; I'm talking sleeves fit perfectly, shoulders exact, length perfect - the works! Not to be dramatic but it's amazing to have a coat that fits well right off the bat which is probably why I chose a very grown up, lady-like look to go with my new camel jacket.  My petite ladies know what I'm talking about!

I'll let you in on a little secret - I didn't even provide all of my measurements to Sumissura for the coat. They have a feature that allows you to enter in your height and weight and it calculates your measurements from there. Of course, if you wanted to provide all of your own you can as well but laziness prevailed in my case.

Seriously ladies, even the lining is on point - and totally customizable! I went back and forth between a navy pinstripe and this classic beige interior. I'm definitely happy with the beige lining, but can't stop thinking about the pinstripe.  Second coat maybe?

  4. Wow, this is perfect! I hadn't paid attention to fit until recently but now I see that fit can really make or break an outfit, and since coats are much more difficult to self-tailor than other types of clothing, this site is a godsend! Time to play around with the site!
