Winter Coat - New Look

Sunday, October 19, 2014

I can't believe how cold it's been lately. I know it's autumn but was it this cold at this time last year? My Time Hop app hasn't had many weather related posts so I can't tell. 

I went to New Look in Denton last week and spotted this coat. It was £59.99 and it was the first winter coat i've tried on this side of this year so didn't buy it.

While we were in a cafe later on I checked my email and I'd had an email from New Look with a 20% discount code so I ordered it. 

I paid £47.99 and as it was over £45 I got free standard delivery. Even more impressive was that it arrived the day after. I ordered 3pm Sunday and it arrived 11am Monday.

I've worn it everyday since I got it and it's lovely and snuggly. I thought the fur round the hood was detachable but it isn't.

I also like that it has pully ties on the inside rather than on the outside.

My only really issue and I doubt it'll be a problem is the amount of fasteners this is round the neck.

My pictures might not show it clearly. I'll talk you through it.
Zip cover press stud
There is also a collar cover that is a couple of inches wide that press stud fastens
When the hood is up there is also a press stud fastener to keep it up.

This means even when the coat is open the neck area is a bit bulky. I did fasten them all up when I got caught in the rain and it was a bit claustrophobic but it did keep the hood in place.

I've been trying not to look at coat as you always find a nicer one once you've made that commitment and purchased one but I haven't seen one I like better.

  1. That is a fab coat, I seem to struggle every year finding one that I like!! Good find xx

  2. It really is, It hasn't been off my back since I bought it. I usually delete all the promo emails as soon as they hit my in box so i'm glad I actually read this one!

  3. I'm the same, I usually spend weeks weighing up all the options and hoping for a special offer that i miss out on the coat I actually want.
