Double take: Old Navy

Every girl loves her deals and steals… as a plus size fashionista, if you can score a fashionable find at a great price, I am all over it, but what happens when your great low-price retailer introduces in a great find at an unexpectedly higher price point?

This is where Old Navy comes in. Over on Twitter, my Curvy fashion blogger girlfriend, @afrobella scooped me on this new Plus Size Gray Wool Cape over at Old Navy. Fabulous right? Well, at a 129.00 price point, I was a little confused, as most Old Navy pieces break the $100 price point!

Given that they do not carry any of their plus size collection in their stores, I would love to hear from you- do you have this coat? Does the price match the quality at Old Navy? Would you spend $130 at Old Navy? How much would you spend on a coat?

Sound off! The Coat is CUTE!!!!

    how much i would spend totally depends on the coat. the fabric, the style, all of that.

    now re O/N and this coat, I would not pay this price simply because i do not think its worth it.

    and its not that i dont love O/N. There jeans are one of my favs and i have a lot of their dresses and tops.

    i am just generally not a fan of wool-blends.

    What type of jackets do you fancy, if not wool?

    The coat is bangin but no way in heck would I pay that for a coat at Old Navy. Sorry, just wouldn’t do it.
    And it’s not 100% wool, it’s wool blend, probably polyester. So it won’t wear or wash well. No thanks.
    I wouldn’t pay more than $75 for a coat at Old Navy.

    Old Navy has always had expensive coats. Even in normal sizes.

      No joking matter… I wonder if they thought to sneak it in… I do wish and hope the best for them!

    But does anyone ever pay full price at Old Navy? There’s always a discount of coupon.

    While they no longer stock the plus size line in stores, they often have 18 and 20 larger straight sizes, which also seem to be a bit bigger lately and fit my 1x-2X size. Having said that, many of their tops fit very oddly for me, so not too much works, but I’ve gotten a few pieces – mostly Ts and a cute velvet jacket two years back. The quality on the latter is good, but the Ts barely make it through a season before becoming PJs.

    the coat is now $99 and they still have all of the sizes. does that make a difference?

    on second thought, i just finished reading the reviews and just about everyone was disappointed, not in the material (wool vs wool-blend) but in the fact that it is not as pictured. sometimes online shopping sucks. oh well…

    FYI, you’re misusing the term “price point.” What you really mean is “price.”
