BB Dakota navajo coat: the UK's offering

After having mahoosive lust for the BB Dakota navajo coat (centre) from Modcloth, I set about finding a version available in the UK.

River Island £85   Modcloth $119.99  Topshop £75

As you can see I didn't have a huge amount of luck! the best 'dupe' was the River island one on the left, but if I'm honest I just doesn't hit the spot, it's too 'tube' like, and I want toggles! The only other attempt the UK has is the Topshop one on the right, which isn't really anything like the BB Dakota one, but it does have a snuggy borg lining, so I'll let it off!

Overall I'm a bit disappointed, I'm still madly in love with the original Modcloth one, and it's sitting hundreds of miles away. I'm not sure I dare buy it though, what if it doesn't fit or (shock horror) I don't like it, it'll be a bit tough to return! plus $119.99 + shipping from U.S to UK, I'll be seeing $$$! Oh what to do!
