Say what now? OP asked for opinions. I gave my opinion, just like everybody else.

it's suede. It's not going to be warm enough in winter where you are, even with faux-fur lining. Faux fur isn't very warm. I guess it depends on what you'd be wearing it for; evenings out, or for keeping warm in a storm or very cold weather? You'd need something else for that.

I'd love it it, if it were real fur instead of that fake mess. Otherwise, it is pretty.

No, I don't think your size would be an issue, most movie stars (think Sandra Bullock) are teeny. Just be sure everything, including the sleeves are in proportion. I'm sure most movie stars have everything tailored.

To put a finer point on the discussion, is white a color you wear well, I look horrible in white or cream.

When the hood is up, your face will be 'on display' if your hair and makeup (yes you will probably need to wear make-up to pull this off right) aren't right, it may just look sad, like you tried but just don't have any fashion sense. Unless your a flawless beauty, what's that like? lol you'll need to approach it as a stylist would (hello)

Then you have to find the perfect boots, shoes, handbag, gloves etc. Most people don't get that detailed and probably don't need to.

I love it! I'm not sure you could wear that thing wear I am (New England/Boston) without being gawked at but maybe in a more stylish and less conservative place like NYC?

Cute, but awfully expensive for faux fur.

Sorry, it just seemed so odd that you thought you knew how many women in the whole world wear or should not wear fur. If you actually believe such an opinion is viable, you believe anything. OP asked for opinions... Do you remember when your mother told you just because someone tells you to jump off the garage, does it mean you must do it?

I've had some faux fur coats in the past, and they were actually fairly warm. I think it depends on how thick and plus the fur is, but the fur fibers trap a lot of air and insulate.
