The Great Winter Coat

Some women crave bags, others covet shoes but for me it’s all about coats. I love nothing more than wrapping up and blocking out the British cold. I also love the heaviness of coats and the way they hang on my body. Perhaps my love for coats is fuelled by the fact I can justify some extravagant purchases because they are also such practical wardrobe staples. Chunky, heavy coats in reds, navys, black & whites, nudes and pinks are warming my heart this season. Here’s some of my favourites;

MULBERRY Oversized Alexa – Nightshade Blue Large silky Snake

Oh dear, I have just come across this and its already soared straight to the top of my want list. I am not usually a fan of snakeskin textures, but the beautiful navy colour combined with gold hardware makes this a classy, functional bag that I could pair with nearly everything in my wardrobe. But at £1100 its not going to be mine without a challenge. Anyone want a kidney?

Nudes, blacks, whites, pearls, bows and peter pan collars. This is my idea of wardrobe heaven.
