Tweed Coat - Topshop
I knew I wanted a skirted coat featuring some sort of fur, but I waited and waited before making the final decision on my coat for this year. I think its such an important choice as a coat is such a key piece to invest in, particularly if you're facing a British winter. For a while I had my heart set on the Urban Outfitters Princess Coat, but with the price tag being obscene, and it selling out across the majority of London, it seemed like fate when I stumbled across this beauty on the Topshop website.
I was heartbroken when it disappeared from the site soon after, and didnt return at any point soon after, so after some help from Sarah, I headed to Topshop Liverpool to beg them to search the warehouse for it. Enlisting the help of a guy I used to work with, I got my little mitts on it!
It's absolutely perfect for me, and makes me feel like some sort of posh Victorian. The belt cinches in the waist and really emphasises the skirted shape of the bottom, which is really luxurious with reams of fabric in its pleats, and it spins so nicely (see evidence above). This might sound a bit odd but the three-quarter length sleeves are also great for me as I use the tube a lot, they allow for a bit more ventilation than normal sleeves! Saves me being a sweaty betty.
