FASHION | Sale Buy #1

Coat - Warehouse via ASOS | Jumper - Uniqlo | Necklace - Etsy | Coated Jeans - Zara | Boots - Topshop

Looking back now I don't like this outfit, it's all black which should be hard to get wrong but it was. It's either wrong shoes or wrong trousers, I wish I'd worn plain black skinnies but they were all in the wash...it's what I get for being lazy! Anyway, these are two of my sale buys I wanted to show you (bought before I set myself a challenge!) First up is the coat, which I bought myself as a Christmas gift (because getting yourself a Crimbo present is a thing right?) and it was something I'd had my eye on for ages but was waiting for it to pop up in the sale because things always do on ASOS. I drool over the Acne Velocite jacket like everyone else but even if I did have the spare grand it costs to buy it I wouldn't because all that shearling probably wouldn't suit me but I like the furriness of this one! It should have been £90 but in the sale plus a discount code I got it for £40 which ain't bad at all. It's still available here, if you fancy it I will say it's pretty oversized...this is my usual 10 but it's a little big! But I think oversized is what you want with this kind of jacket. Then secondly are the boots which I failed to photograph properly but they're from Topshop and cost me £50. Not much of a saving from the full price of £62 but they only had a couple of pairs left and they're literally perfect so I don't mind. They're just plain black chelsea boots, it's taken me over a year to find the right pair but I think these might be the ones <3 I'll do a post on them soon though! 

This is what I wore to go out for a family meal at the weekend, we went to my brother's area for what I think was Greek food...whatever it was it was delish! Then we went to his and his girlfriend's flat, their place is amazing. Me and my cousin were just like 'Nothing is plain! Everything is so quirky and trendy!' It's true, even their ice cubes were shaped like fish. They're so hipsterrrrrr (don't tell them I said that!) As for my own house, it's quiet now because my Nan and Grandad went back to Ireland today after visiting for Christmas...hate when they leave!

  10. I don't know, I think you're pulling off the 'all black err'thing' look VERY well. I can't seem to manage it, except for parties when I wear a LBD :(
    That jacket/coat is SO GOOD. You have such great coat taste, which is an underappreciated talent in our society I think.

  11. I think you look so polished in all black Josie and the pants is an excellent fit. Looks edgy but still so so cool!

  21. Buying yourself a Christmas present is absolutely a thing, and one as gorgeous as this needed to be snapped up! How are you not a model Josie?! You're flawless! Your brother & his girlfriend's flat sounds amazing, I love the idea of decorating a whole flat or house. It was always my favourite part of the Sims, building the house and decorating it haha. I hope you get to see your nan and grandad again soon lovely xxx

  22. P.s. I hope you don't mind but I made you a header very similar to the one you have now, I'm not very good at these sort of things but I gave it a go :) you don't have to use it of course!! I put it on my photobucket here http://i1062.photobucket.com/albums/t488/teathreesugars/JosiesJournal_zps2fcd8d5d.jpg so you can save it if you want to :) xxx

  25. I like this outfit a lot... I also buy myself Christmas presents (or at least use Christmas as an excuse to buy more?)... I really like the coat, there is a Warehouse coat I'm stalking right now on ASOS, not sure if I'm going to purchase it though. I don't want to use up another of my 5!

  26. I LOVE this, that jacket is perfect! I'm on a jacket ban at the moment, because I've finally admitted to myself I have far too many (I feel like I need to join Jacket Addicts Anonymous or something! Ha!), but now I really want to break it & get this too *sob* ! I love these coated jeans with it by the way, the whole outfit is perfect! :)

  27. My entire wardrobe is basically black -if I'm feeling crazy, I might throw on some grey, navy or white- so I love this outfit :)
    I have to say, I love your blog- you write so well :) x
