Product Review: Purple Rain (Coat)
In Canada, it has been raining a lot lately so I have been in desperate need of a really cute rain coat with a hood to shelter myself from the rain. I don't know what it is about plus size rain coats or "spring jackets" but none of the ones I own have hoods! I've been searching and searching for that perfect plus size rain coat to protect my hair by having hood big enough to cover and stay down in the wind. I was shopping with my mom a few weeks back and came across an awesome coat that fit me perfectly from Penningtons. Usually I wear a 1X at Penningtons because their sizes run really large but I had to go up to a 2X in this to fit my ladies comfortably, so keep that in mind when purchasing. This fabulous coat comes in four colours: sunset purple (shown below), black, blue and green lake.
It has the perfect cinching that defines my waist so gloriously, and the best part-- its hood stays on (even in the windy weather)! Ultimately I purchased the Sunset Purple shade, which I thought might be a little too 'Barney' for me because frankly it kind of does on the rack. However, after slipping it on, I knew this was the best shade for my skin tone and style. I purchased my coat at 50% during a promo event so I got it for $50. They retail for $100 but they are currently on sale for 25% off, so they're $75 right now. No doubt these will go on sale sooner than later, but I would definitely recommend picking one up as soon as you can. The coats can be found here for sale: Penningtons Rain Coats
