Well the weather has been rather lacking of late I am fed up of this rainy summer. I am the sort of person who likes summer to be sunny and warm and winter to be cold (and sunny)!) but I cannot stand this inbetween weather where its rainy, cloudy but hot! I mean come on how do you dress in this weather...argh! I do love summer I mean who hates sunny days and light nights but I admit I prefer winter clothing. I am always looking ahead to the next season and I have found that the key to buying a coat is to buy early. I have left it too late before and so found that I am hunting around for a coat in November/December with not much to choose from.
This year I have planned well in advance! Not only did I buy that faux fur New Look jacket a month or so ago ( a bargain at £11) but I also managed to purchase two other coats in July in the sales and a further coat that as soon as I saw it knew it had to be mine.
Firstly I call this my 'Ultimate' coat because my draw literally dropped when I saw this coat and my heart raced! I knew this coat was going to be mine.
Its from Miss Selfridge and it is £89.00 but I managed to find a 20% off code at the last minute (which has expired now) and so got it for around £71. Its worth every penny. I so wanted a Camel coat and a fur collar and a belt....tick tick tick! This is stunning and the thing I love about this is I love Camel, its so classy and rich looking plus it will not show dirt and should stay looking pristine. I love a belt on a coat as I am a busty, slim and short girl so find coats can overpower me. I adore this coat.
I noticed on the Miss Selfridge website they also have it in Nude and Black with like a white now and can tell you I would love the Nude colour too but I cannot justify buying another coat and exactly the same!
Anyway previous to this I had seen another coat I love which was out of stock on ASOS, however one day I happened to log in and by sheer miracle they had one on there in my size....oh my god and in the sale!! I got this Lipsy Swing coat which was originally £85 reduced to £29.50. This was too good a bargain to miss. I would have preferred it if it had a belt but overall the coat is lovely, its a bit thinner than the Miss S one so more for Autumn rather than Winter but again its very stylish. I love the fur on the collar and cuffs.
Lastly a black coat...unusual for me! I have not got any black coats except for a faux leather jacket but when I saw this I thought again what a bargain and loved the more casual look of it. Its from South at Very and this was reduced to £20. Its like a cotton material with again a belt and a massive fake fur collar. Again I feel very glam in this and it makes my waist look tiny.
Have you been eyeing up any coats?
