Today I’m Wearing….My New Coat
I bought this coat back in January and thought I would save it until the next Autumn because its a heavy, wool coat. But today called for a little practicality for warmth amidst the cold, grey skies. Thankfully, this coat doesn’t substitute style over function. It’s warm, long and so flattering. It had has waistline which is accentuated by the full, swirly skirt part of the coat. And guess where I got it from? Yep. Another eBay win, originally from Topshop and in perfect condition. Its fully lined with a complementary coloured satin and detailed stitching all over it. It definitely has a turn-of-the-century feel to it because of its classic cut and large lapels, but worn with jeans and heels, its transformed from Edwardian to modish.
