Be honest. Does this make me look....

... short?

OK, so, I saw this wool coat on sale on  It was on massive sale and it happened to be available in my size.  In petite even.  You know, for those of us 5'1" - 5'4"

Now, to be fair, it was labelled as a "long" coat.  But, on the model on Amazon, it was a perfectly good 3/4-length coat.  So I thought that they meant "long coat" as opposed to, you know, a "short jacket" or something.

And then it arrived.  And I tried it on.

What do you all think?  Do I keep it, or does it make me look like I'm playing dress-up?

I think it looks nice. As long as the sleeves aren't too long, I say keep it. - K. :)

Keep it!
It looks fine.

I'm umm under 5'4 and I have the same problem but that really does look good.
It's hard to find a long coat for us height challenged girls.

You did good:)

It's a long coat, no doubt about it. That said, I don't think it makes you look particularly shorter than ANY long coat would. I can envision you striding along with the coat streaming behind you in a breeze and wondering who the young woman is that would/could make a long winter coat look so stylish...

Woman, what are you doing in a wool coat in THIS part of the country?

That said, I think it looks good on you. I've always had an affinity for long coats. And look, the buttons stop before going all the way down.
