Friend of mine wanted a coat that was just unbelievably beautiful (to her). I mean it was a nice coat, but I don’t know if I would have went to the lengths that she went to. Anyways, she wanted the coat and it was on sale (excellent markdown as well). Only problem was, that it was in a Large and she was a small. She took it to the dry cleaner and said can you get this coat taken in? They looked at her and said “taken into what?” She responded wide eyed, my size a small. The dry cleaner was incredulous, but two weeks later she came back and lo and behold, it was taken in.
The moral of the story is, if you want a French Connection coat that’s now one of a kind because its on sale and its only available in large (and you’re not a large), get it taken in. It’s $179.99, final sale here.
