Some weeks ago I have ordered a coat and a vest from Yumetenbo (DreamV). It was my first time ordering on Rakuten Global, since it has been a special offer: Free International Shipping!
After stalking the whole shop, I've decided. I wanted to buy a Coat and a Vest. You can see me wearing my new vest in my last blog post here. The vest is very cozy and well made. The lace is beautiful! It is a bit too big for me, but I like to order bigger sizes than smaller ones (do not trust the Internet sizes. Haha)
So this is the coat I have ordered. You can find it here. I choose this one, because it reminds me of Biscuits. Nomnom. (*´・ｖ・)
I decided for the dark brown colour with beige bottom. I would have also liked the pink and beige one, but I thought on this light colours you can see dust too fast.
The collar and the wristcuffs are removeable and very fluffy.
I always have troubles deciding which size to choose. My flatmate helped me to take my measurments. Since a coat is not that 'moveable' and stretchy (that's the word! hihi) it took my time deciding which size.
I have to say that evens size M would have fit without problems. But the arm length and the shoulder length where too short. Even size L was too small (maybe I do have Gorilla arms.) So I took LL. Bust and waist are far too big, but I have to admit, I'm always wearing a warm pullover underneath the coat. I searched in the internet for how many units you should add to your actual bust size. At least 4cm! The coat is a bit loose on me, but kinda fits too if I'm wearing warm sweaters. Which is ok.
I could already notice from DreamV's pictures on the website that the fabric is something like fleece. Not very good if it's snowing outside. But I did not try this out. Still the coat has some super pretty lining (roses!). It is also fleece, as I noticed from the pictures, and the coat itself is very thin. But as I said: If I'm wearing a warm sweater underneath I'm nearly melting. So warm!
I have to admit that if it has not been for free international shipping, I would have not ordered this coat. For such a fabric, which is in my opinion not a fabric you normally use for coats, I would have not bought it, even if it is super cute.
It cost 5,775yen which were around 45Euro that time. Which is ok.
Well I had to pay customs though, but at least I had not to pay for shipping. Which is also okay!
I am very happy with the coat, but I'm afraid that it is not wearable during snow or rain because of it's fabric. It is very warm if you wear a warm sweater underneath and looks super cute. The removeable collar and wristcuffs are also a big pro. The buttons are also very cute. Still I do not know if I would bought this coat for 5775yen if I had to pay for shipping too (poor student). I do like its shape. The coat has a figue hugging shape because of its A-Line shape. And everytime I'm wearing this coat I think I'm a living biscuit. (*^▽^*)
Thank you very much! I hope this review was a bit useful.
