As Black Friday gradually approaches, I thought I’d share with you some of my favourite coats available right now. This post is more suited to people in colder climates, but please feel free to let me know what other clothing items you’ve got you eye on as the weekend draws near. So I purchased this coat on eBay about 2 years ago and before I eventually got my hands on it, I had searched for a maxi length coat almost everywhere.
I purchased one from ASOS, which was also grey, but when it arrived let’s just say unflattering was an understatement. It didn’t hang well on my body and the material wasn’t as great as the online pictures suggested. eBay was actually a last resort as I felt that I would only find used and vintage coats, and I didn’t want that. I wanted something new, simply because I intended to have it for a long time.
Scrolling through the pages, specifically looking for a grey coat, there it was, a medium grey coat made out of wool and some other lovely fibres. I couldn’t believe my eyes. It was pretty much love at first sight which meant I HAD to have it. Only £90 and till this day, everywhere I wear it to; I receive so many compliments. A coat is an investment, so even if you have to drop a few £££’s on it, I say do it. Living in the U.K where 70% of the time it’s cold, I’d say this coat definitely has great cost per wear.
