It is Ivory. Never buy a winter coat in white. It will look dingy. You walk by a winter car, and bam! Your coat is dirty, from the car. You put your coat on to go out, and the collar shows the makeup you just put on your face. You step in a slush puddle, black dots on your new ivory coat from the mud.

Winter is not all about pristine, white snow. Snow turns to slush, mud, grime...all on your new ivory coat.

Oh, you went to Starbucks, and just dribbled all down the front of your ivory coat? Wow, that will be a classy look for the rest of the day.

It is machine washable? Right. I am sure the fur and coat will pop right out of the dryer, looking good as new....not the faux fur I have seen.

So, this is a pretty coat, if you just wear it once in a great while...but, wear no makeup...that ivory fur will pick it right up.

Totally agree. This coat will show every little piece of dirt. It would be fine if worn ocasionally but I definitely wouldn't purchase it to be worn every day.

This is so true! I thought I was just a mess but my favorite winter coat is camel/khaki and it always gets dirty so quickly! Ugh, time to get a black or navy coat

Fur coats of any kind, whether it's fake or not, is too ostentatious for my tastes.

Yeah, I am not really into fur - even the fake kind (the real kind I am super opposed to)...it just seems ostentatious and outdated to me. (Any fur that is, not just the one shown.)

Thanks everyone. Do you think this would be a better buy?

Why do you want fake fur?

I think they're both very pretty and would love to live in a climate where that would be possible. I like the Ivory one very much...even if it's not practical as so many have pointed out. But this one is also very pretty. JMO...I like that sort of thing!
