I Have A New Winter Coat!

Hi Guys!

Loooook! I have a new coat! I can’t actually tell you how excited I am! A new coat is a really big thing for me, I can’t remember the last time I had a coat I truly loved! Actually that’s a lie… now I’m thinking about it I do in fact remember it well, it was winter 2009, and I got a gorgeous coat from the Zara sale, it was perfection, and it was reduced from £150 down to £30, the joy of finding such a bargain was fantastic!

I still have said Zara coat in the back of a cupboard somewhere, it’s a bit knackered but I can’t bare to get rid of it, even though it definitely won’t fit me any more! Anyway I digress… so what do you think of my gorgeous new Biker Coat? It’s made of a dark forest green boucle effect material with faux leather quilted sleeves, it’s smart and it’s warm and I love it! I think it’s the bees knees!

If you click on the link you may be surprised to see the coat is in fact from JD Williams! If you haven’t heard of them make sure you take a look at the site, they have a massive range of clothes in sizes 12 to 32!

Hi! I’m Laura from Fashion For 21 and I wanted to share with all you lovely readers my Ultimate Wishlist for Autumn/Winter. This is my very first guest post, and I hope you all enjoy reading it. Now, I’m not gonna lie and say I’m not skint – I am. But if I did have all the money in the world then these pieces are what I’d stock up on for the coming season.

I’m a massive fan of layering, and the pieces I’ve picked would look great layered up together. The tartan trend is going to be HUGE next season and I’m in love with this little skirt from Zara, they also do the same print for trousers so are worth checking out. Take a note from Le Happy and wear tartan with a cute oversized shirt for layering brownie points. I’ve chosen this lovely big biker jacket from River Island since it just looks so cosy, same goes for that slouchy cardigan from Topshop. I’ve picked out a couple of gorgeous scarves to add a touch of tartan to an outfit (if you don’t want to be sporting the full-on kilt) and pairing these with the chunky boots would just look tres chic don’t-cha-think?

Finally for beauty items, the vampy lip is back for Autumn (not gonna resist it) so I’ve chosen a wonderfully daring shade from Topshop’s lipstick range, along with some lovely Nail colours for night and day (that’s the grey for day, the metallic tone for night – in case you were wondering). And last but not least, I hope I’m not the only one amazed excited casually looking forward to working some of the Model’s Own Velvet Goth collection into their beauty regime? I’m really loving the colours for winter, particularly the red berry tone, and they aren’t half festive!

So I hope that wasn’t too much of an excruciating read – these are my favourite items I’ve seen for next season, let me know if you agree with what I’ve picked out and anything you’re looking forward to! Also let me know what you think of tartan, I think it might be a marmite item for some but personally I love it.

Thanks for reading

Laura from Fashion For 21
