Not the most exciting. Not the most pimptastic. Not the most eye-catching. But definitely the most practical and wearable for me!
Matalan Fur Coat, Mulberry Bag, Aubin & Wills Jumper, H&M Jeans, Converse pumps
So another little Matalan lovely. I ordered this fur coat online with a 20% discount when I spotted that they did a petite version of it a few weeks back. I actually sized up to a 12 after having tried a 12 on in store in a regular fit (there was no size 10 to try on) and thinking it wasn't that big actually. This is actually going against the norm of every other fur coat I've tried on where I've had to size down to stop them overwhelming me. In a size 12 petite, I can fit a nice cosy jumper under this with room to spare and I don't even need to take the sleeves up. And guess what - in the spirit of the previous post - there are some in store and none online!
Yes I could have gone a little crazier, yes I could have gone a little bit more luxe but hey if a plain black fur coat is good enough for Jeanne Damas, it's good enough for me :o) And yes, I may have taken a few fashion cues from this French goddess (across body bag and Converse) but hey it works for me!
