I'm looking for something in a lovely color with trench-like details but a shorter cut - I've recently lost some weight and I don't want a coat that's going to swallow me. I live in a big city and do a ton of walking, so I want a hood for rainy days (the detail that has tripped me up when looking for this dream coat in the past). I'm a grad student on a budget, so the closer you can keep this to $100-150, the better. Thanks! Amanda"
