Your First Look: Just As You Are

Here’s something you’ve probably said before…”Why can’t I find a coat that fits me?”

Fall is almost here and you know that means chilly weather. You all know I love when it gets cold. Although, L

os Angeles doesn’t get that cold, I still want a nice coat that actually fits me.

This weekend I was in New York, for the first Plus Model Magazine blogger conference. It was so much fun!! We were getting the first look, with a group of amazingly beautiful bloggers (those pics to come), of the new line of outerwear by Just As You Are.

Just As You Are wants to emphasize to all of us that they do care about what we want and for us to know that “size doesn’t matter.” They’ve done the research, believe me. They’ve listened, which a lot of brands don’t do. The coats do not come in sizes, you add your measurments, they tell you what coats would suit you, and you order. Simple.

As I watched the ladies modeling the coats (below), I noticed that there was something for everyone. They’ve to

uched on the small details. And believe me it’s the small details that count. For example, they only use faux furs, and they are incredibly soft. The coats are light weight, come in great fall colors, they have inside zippers, linings and faux fur collars that detach.

Prices will range from $159-$289, not bad for something you’ll use for many years.

The site will be live no later than September 14th. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed. These coats really are mad

e for us. It’s about time.

“Like” them on Facebook, follow them on Twitter, and tweet them with you questions or comments. They will also be featured in the next issue of Plus Model Magazine, so be on the lookout. A big thank you to all the amazing ladies of Plus Model Magazine that made this conference happen. I can’t wait for the next one.

Which coat is your favorite? What do you think so far?

    the 2nd and last coats are my faves! i’m really picky about coats – i found a good pea coat 2 years ago and after a few months, i could not get the lint out and had to retire it :( i looked everywhere last winter for a similar coat and couldn’t find anything!
