50% off 24-hour pre-order extravaganza is up! http://vautecouture.com/collections/pre-orders


Quick question: have any of you bought one and had it tailored? Was it difficult and/or expensive? Is that a ridiculous thing to do for an already pricey coat?

I like the Audrey, but I'm fairly short (5'4") and I'm worried it's just going to be too long and too full.

(sort of off-topic but I was flipping through a magazine the other day and saw her featured in a Mazda ad, totally talking about vegan being the future of fashion and stuff... pretty neat.)

I bought one last year and I've thought of having it taken in a bit, but I haven't priced it out.

It's the belden in eggplant luxe and it's gorgeous, I get a lot of compliments on the color.

The eggplant is a really pretty color! (I've been google image searching).

I think the Audrey is going to be too much coat for me and would make me look stumpy. Bummer. I wish it were shorter and with a less-full skirt.

I love that color and was disappointed when it sold out last year.

Ooh, they have some. I wanted a different style last year because I already have a Belden in black. So tempted.

Same. I have a black belden and it is...not super flattering on me. I haven't been wearing it because it doesn't quite fit right, which is a real shame. I need to get to the tailor!

Fuuuuu. I don't really need a new coat but I am reallllly tempted. I have a Belden in black and I love it. Since the Belden is my classic, everyday coat, I can justify getting a fun coat, right? The Music box is calling my name.

I ordered the Audrey in blue velvet. OOPS here too! If I can't easily make it shorter and/or less voluminous (if needed), I'll just return it or maybe exchange it for a Belden.

I wish they made something other than the Belden in eggplant. I can't justify the same coat in a different color.

I was really hoping for waxed canvas again this year, since I could actually afford it. Oh welllll.

I have a Belden from last year that I need to get tailored. They accidentally sent me a S instead of XS, and obviously since they sell out so fast, they weren't able to exchange it. It didn't end up getting very cold last year, so I kept putting off getting it done. I'm going to take mine in soon though to find out if it will make sense to have it done and how pricey it will be. I don't think it's ridiculous to tailor an expensive piece, because I think it will probably last a long time so it's a good investment. A great, warm coat that lasts a long time is something awesome to have!

If you're near a Nordstrom, they offer one (I think) free tailoring per year for Nordstrom card members. There's no fee or anything to be a card member. It's basically like a club card with benefits. They *prefer* that your tailored item be purchased from them, but it's not mandatory. It's quite a deal, considering the costs of tailoring.

Interesting! I don't have a Nordstrom card, but we do have a store around here now.

I agree, bodhi. I was on the fence, but I've heard great things about the coats, and I've been vegan for 8 years now with just sad cheap parka-type winter coats to show for it, so it's time for something nice and pretty and flattering. : ) Hopefully it works out.

creep, they had just a few waxed canvas Beldens, and I guess they sold out really really quickly. I'm not sure how production works and why they can't make more since it's a pre-order, but I'm sure it's not easy for a little company.

I thought the waxed ones were left over from last year? I'm pretty sure the eggplant luxe was.

I really want a lilac Traveler. Such pretty fabric!

I am so tempted by the Audrey this year, just because I love the stars on the buttons. I have a Vaute coat from 5 years ago and it's still perfect, so I don't know if I can justify the purchase... let's see. I am waiting for a dress from them to arrive, and after I try it on maybe I'll jump and buy the coat and the constellation dress as well because stars.

Yeah, that constellation dress is magnificent... but given the way it falls on the very flat-chested model, there's no way it would contain my enormous boobs.

Ohhh, she kept saying "We're making just five eggplant Beldens", but I see a new comment now about some fabric being leftover, so I guess that's it. It must be tough to have to get the fabric made every year before you make the coats!

Yep, that's what got me.

I ordered the Belden in black V/Velveteen. I ordered the El the first year she started, and while I love it, I think the Belden will be better for me. I had to sew a snap in on the El to keep it from falling off my shoulders. At some point I saw Leanne that the sizing was improved after the first year, so I think this will help.

We better actually have some cold weather this winter! Last year I never got to wear my El coat because it was never cold enough to need anything more than a fleece jacket.

This was another concern. I'm usually good with a hoodie under a thinner jacket, but when it does get really cold, I'm kind of screwed, because I don't have anything appropriate.

Anyway, ended up not buying anything this year, because they're pricey and they didn't have exactly what I wanted.

I got one of the waxed Beldens. I couldn't justify getting another winter one because I already have 3 in various styles (original pea, Airs, and Alicia). Plus, I just wasn't feelin' it for the designs this year. The backside of the Musicbox was cool but not the front.

I'm worried that the small won't fit. I gained weight last winter and popped the buttons on my Belden and even though I've lost it again I will probably regain it when I go back to living upstate (more sedentary lifestyle up there.) And I won't know until the winter.

Oh well, if I outgrow it maybe I can resell it.
