Not one, not two but THREE coats!


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?



  1. Oh my God, coats!!! It's too early! :P But I have to say I bought one about two months ago at the charity shop, a light blue one! I agree with the fact that summer fashion is boring, I prefer the in between fashion wise! When I'm able to wear a light scarf!

  2. You've done very well! I love all three of them. I CANNOT buy another coat, I have so many and I don't want to get rid of any so I just have to stop myself!x

  3. I can't think about coats, I'm trying not to lose hope we might get a summer yet! Love your Miss Selfridge number x
