So you know in my last post I gave myself just that little bit of leeway to still use my birthday money spends in my dry February? Well thank goodness I did! I found this last week when in-between a pre-school drop off and pick up I had to dash into town to run a few errands. It was down to £40 in Topshop but too big and I also thought the fur hood was too much. The more I thought about the coat though, the more I felt I had a gap for one (completely talked myself round of course).
A day later I then found this little gem in Miss Selfridge. I don't have one local to me so grabbed the opportunity to pop in when I was passing. As always I was in a hurry, sometimes that time limit with me is a good thing as I have to make a decision. It fitted and was £95 down to £45. I had my short wool Zara coat on that day but I really needed something longer. My big puffa down one is great for terrible weather but this felt like a good in-between coat. Job done!
As usual, it was hung up to look at but after only 48 hours, was worn. The fur hood is so snuggly and soft around my neck - just what I need when my glands are up and fighting off my tonsillitis (hence I look pale but had to crack a cheesy smile for you!). Sorry to say only a 4 is left online but do try the stores as there were a few in the one I looked in. The fur is detachable and the lining makes it extra warm. I have worn it every day since, why did I leave it so long to purchase a fur hooded parka I ask myself?!?
Not a lot left from Topshop online either but again, my local store had loads in. There is this one from them online, £75 down to £50 if you are looking for something a little looser fit wise.
Leaving you with my current situation.....and they work for any tonsillitis sufferers out there!
