New Winter Coat / Little Gold Rush

So I finally got around to buying myself a new Winter coat, you may remember I was having some dilemma's a while ago. I ended up going for something completely out of my comfort range and very different to my usual style. While usually I would have been enticed by Primark's cosy looking parka, I knew I wanted something a bit smarter, something with some structure, something I could put on and feel empowered by. I also wanted to spend a little more money in the hope it wouldn't fall apart after two wears....

 So I ended up going into Topshop and falling for this military green funnel necked beaut.....

It was the only one of its style left, in my size, fitted like a dream- I called it fate. Fate, (as it turns out), also has a sense of humour as I noticed 3 buttons missing and other's dangling precariously (so much for spending more money for quality, huh?) but I was under its spell and with 10% knocked off the price I kind of lost my head. Luckily it came with spare buttons so I am now in the process of restoring it to its former glory, (and by 'I', I of course mean my mum). So there you have it- warm, heavy, dramatic, perfect.

In other fashion-y news my sister came home today and I couldn't help but notice the brilliant gold jewellery she was sporting, I'm not usually a fan of gold, but she wears it well don't ya think?




I really love the deer ring (from Topshop).
