This one is pretty much boring the hell out of me! To the point where I'm giving up and not even looking. I'm not really a strategic shopper, in that if there's something I'm after I will hunt it down in a week, purchase it and job done. I normally quite happily wait until the best is available for the price I want to spend. (I have been known to wait 6 months for a specific perfume I wanted for my birthday until a friend got it a lot cheaper in the States!). That being said, I did think I had struck gold with the Next camel coat. It fitted really well, it wasn't badly made and was the right shade of camel I thought I was after. But it sat in my wardrobe not being touched for a week. I kept trying it on but I almost felt like it was too pale for my skin tone. It was very thin and that also bothered me slightly. Back it went!
|Ok so maybe the lighting and being a little poorly didn't help the situation in this photo but I did go back to it several times!|
|A great camel shade, just not perhaps on me|
|Uniqlo - great coat but the XS didn't come up true to size! I promise you this was an XS and that I am not that small|
|Similar story in Gap although it wasn't as bad|
|I did really like this one in Gap though, incase anyone else is looking, it just didn't fit me|
So the search is on hold until one randomly appears for me! I did find this lovely navy one in Warehouse with 30% off. £90 originally but even at £63 I just decided that it might be in the Christmas sales in a few weeks, I may as well just hold fire until then. I really liked the fit of this one though, the pea coat is a nice style on me as I need some shape. One I will definitely be watching in the sales.

Who else is holding off until the sales or am I the only mad one?!?! I'm not desperate at the end of the day and I'm a firm believer of fate so I'm happy to play the waiting game for the above coat.
