*le sigh* :3  
Oh, life is cruel when such a beautiful coat exists in the world and I can't afford it. In fact, I probably won't ever be able to afford it because it's not 'expensive' so much as 'I'm so expensive I made the other coats cry'.

£1000 ($2000 USD or thereabouts) from Oli.co.uk. Life can be cruel to fashionistas, but alas, we must move on. :(

I can see this being worn by Nana (Osaki), Yukari and quite possibly even Isabella, with a nice brooch and big gown underneath. What do you all think? :)

It's so sad that a coat worth £100 AT BEST is sold at a whooping £1000. Those poor, illegal Chinese workers.

In some ways your right and in others not.
Firstly, real designer goods are NOT made by
illegal Chinese workers...FAKE ones are.
Real designer brands are made where they come from
(France, Italy, Spain, Brazil, etc.)
So, i am against buying fake, not because they are FAKE and the zipper brakes after a day. but because it supports businesses that hire very poor people who would work anywhere they can to get any kind of money.
THAT is wrong!

I agree that pricing on designer things are exaggerated, but when the price is "omg i've lost count on the number of zeros", it can also be an investment. (true fashionista speaking) Investment, i mean good quality, that you will like for a long time and that you can pass down to your kids when the fashion of these days comes back in those days...lol. and often designer bags are painted by hand.
and clothes made by hand (always).

This coat looks of good quality and probably hand made. so its either unique, or there are two or three others. i understand the pricing, its normal...

I see it most on Isabella with a nice brooch or something. (umbrella?)
its to classy for Nana O...i find...
