I wanted all of my girl's to have their LE outfits, so Kirsten's skating coat was a must. I got the complete set from another collector and quite frankly, I don't see why she chose to give it up.
The coat is beautifully made. You can tell it's made from a real blanket because it's so warm and thick, and the red trim on the bottom, sleeves, and hood are extremely flattering. The buttons look like they're made of tiny horns and the hooks are genuine leather. The scarf is very well knit - even more so than Kirsten's PM knit woolens. I like the fact that it's stretchy but still quite sturdy, and the signature heart and squiggles keep the Nordic feel that I love.
The skates are bigger and more sturdy than they look in pictures, but they are still on the delicate side. Kirsten will probably hold hers whilst on display, not wear them. I saw just the skates go for almost what I paid for the entire outfit on ebay last week, so I'm not sure I can afford replacements!
This outfit is now in my personal top 5. The detail, quality, and general look on Kirsten is amazing. A+
