I decided that this year I wanted to join the parka trend so off I set on my quest to find THE parka. I must have ordered around 5 or 6 from different places which all ended up going back for not being long enough, warm enough or because they just looked utterly ridiculous on me! And then there was this one!
I very rarely go in to Topshop these day - I'm neither cool enough nor skinny enough to be wearing clothes from there anymore but I saw this as I was walking by and just knew - you know that feeling, the one where you know you just have to have it! So in I went, tried and bought! To be honest, I didn't even look at the price and was a little taken aback when she said £95 (ok, rather a lot) but I was committed and just couldn't leave it behind!
Now that was about 4 weeks ago now and I have only worn the damn thing once in that time - the weather in the UK is bloody ridiculous turning mild meaning that I don't actually need such a big coat. Because of the lining, it means that I just can't go out in it just yet as I'm boiling even before I've left the house - a good sign it's going to keep me toasty when the weather finally does change but too much at the moment.
Have you found your winter coat yet?
