I've modelled this awfully but this coat is truly a beaut. I've been searching for years for the perfect camel coat (that was in my budget) and now I've finally found The One. The colour isn't too dark or too light, the length is just right and most importantly, the material is exactly the kind of thing I had in mind. There's a lot of camel coats on the high street right now but most of them have this kind of fuzzy, teddy-bear texture which to be honest I think makes a lot of them look quite cheap. This is mainly wool, it's quite interesting because it's made from recycled or unused fabrics which is kind of cool...I have a recycled coat! At £120 it was pricey, especially for someone who is supposed to be saving, but so worth it in my opinion (plus I'm always adding bits on eBay to pay for it!) When it comes to coats I try to buy the best I can afford, as with shoes and bags, because I think they just pull an outfit together. I mainly just wear boring basics as you know, which I get mostly from Uniqlo and GAP that are reasonably priced but look the business seeing as those kind of things are those companies specialities. But when a shoe, bag or coat is cheap sometimes you can tell, especially after a lot of wear.  

Anyway I wore this to go see Annabelle and it was useful because me and my friend hid under it. It was scary, not Insidious scary (still can't sleep because of that) but definitely creepy. Although I find the 'real' Annabelle   a lot more disturbing because you'd never suspect something so innocent looking to be haunted...not that I, er, believe in all that, I'm way more mature. Do you get creeped out easily?

Have a nice weekend!

  4. Love that coat, Josie. Coats are something to splurge on, I think, coz you wear them so often.
    PS I love horror stuff but I do get scared so easily...heh!

  5. I love that coat, I really want a tailored camel coat for winter, but need to get my christmas spending out of the way first. I don't know why you are sayin you modelled it bad, I think you look incredible - I'm so jealous of how you can pull off relaxed style so easily.
    I saw Annabelle this week too and loved it, I love that feeling when you get a big fright. It was such a creepy movie. I think Ouija is next on the list for me :)

  6. Absolutely amazing coat! And I do not think that you have modeled it badly at all!

    I have to say that I am loving M&S at the moment - I picked up a red coat from there a couple of weeks ago and I love it.

  19. Nothing beats a good camel coat, love this one and how you've styled it! Also your hair looks so nice like this. I'm actually pretty good with horror films but I'm a little creeped out by dolls so I might give Annabelle a miss hehe.
