I second Target (and TBH, I'm not usually impressed with their clothes). Of all of my coats (I love coats and have quite a few), my Target coats get the most compliments and comments. I got both for under $40 on sale, I wear them regularly and they still look great (one is 6 years old). I have had to resew buttons but that is the only quality issue. They usually have trendy coats and colours too, especially in the younger section.

Can you get to Myer? They have other brands that are trendy and you can find nice coats for under $150 with some hunting.

I'll put in a 2nd vote for Forever New - they have some really pretty (and warm) looking coats this season. Not sure about coats at Target but I just picked up some nice cardigans and they have upto 40% off at the moment biggrin.gif

Does Forever New have sizes up to 14? My size does tend to vary at times i have big milk so i find that i have to go a size up especially for tops.

I bought a gorgeous coat last year from Forever new, I still adore it. I'm pretty sure they go up to a 14 or 16.

Forever New usually go up to 16, they are usually fairly good fits for the more "well endowed". The quality of their clothes is usually good too - nice fabrics and decent workmanship. Just had a look at their website Forever New and they have some lovely things in your price range... might have to go and have a look myself!

I second Target and Forever New in that price range. I saw nice coats in both this morning. Target had some nice colours as well.
