I could go on and on about how much I love you guys- but I'm too cold to type! I'm a Californian living in Brooklyn and I've been on the hunt for an attractive down coat for the 2 years that I've lived here...but apparently the words "attractive" and "down coat" don't exist in the same sentence. I've found nothing! I'm looking for something that doesn't make me look a) like I'm wearing a sleeping bag or b) like I've suddenly put on 100 lbs. I want something flattering, that covers my booty, preferably with a hood, and in the $150-250 range! (If it's SUPER cute I'd be willing to throw down a little over $250). I love to wear black but I'm open to different colors! Thanks so much!
Hi Tamara - I've learned to weather the Boston winters so I've got the chilly chops to help you out. Here's a pretty good variety of down puffers, none of which will make you look too Stay-Puft. As you can see - Bluefly is awesome for cute, affordable down coats.

2 - Larry Levine Short Down Jacket ($130)
3 - Soya & Kayo Sateen Paola Down Jacket $138
