Stefi's got a brand new coat

Wednesday, April 16, 2014

Hey lovelies,
It was time to ditch the parker and get a new coat. It’s still a funny time of year weather wise as it’s so cold in the mornings but quite warm at home time.

I’ve been looking for a while and haven’t been able to find one I like. I bought myself a £20.00 yours clothes voucher from living social for £10 and decided I’d put it towards a coat.

You know me I like a bargain and went straight to the sale section. I got this one for £25. The voucher couldn't be used on sales Items without buying something full priced, I got a pair of £3 earrings to allow me to use the voucher. Including delivery (collect in store) I paid £30. (£20 really counting the voucher)
I’m still not sure if I like the coat. When I opened the bag it had a couple of pulls in it and I keep creating more. It’s is fairly thin but warm in the mornings and not too warm going home in.

I don’t know if it’s just me but the shape of it keeps changing. I don’t know how best to describe it but it’s bag lined (I think that’s the right term) and doesn't seem to be sewn down so the fabric and the lining twist a bit.

It also doesn’t have a zip or buttons which I know is the design but sometimes I feel like I need something to hold it closed. I’ve tried it with a belt round and I’m not sure how I feel about that.

This coat is very different from anything I’ve had before so I think it’s just that I’m not used to it. I’ve been wearing it for a week now and I don’t regret keeping it so that must count for something 

What do you think?

  1. I love the coat but I know what you mean about the lining I have had ones like that and it pulls the coat around! Maybe sew a little pop stud on so you can close it. I always feel funny in coats that are open and end up walking along holding onto them! xx

  2. I might have to get some pop stud, I was thinking maybe a hook and eye will have to have a trip to mrs zippy (yes it is a real shop!)

  3. What if you used a pretty broach to pin it closed?

  4. Oooo. Thats a good Idea. I do have a lot of brooches! I will give it a try tomorrow x
