Outfit #2 November 2016 ๐Ÿ˜




I'm writing super late tonight as this week has been totally crazy, but I really wanted to talk about my new coat! You may have seen the below photo on my instagram story earlier this week but frankly it doesn't really do it justice & I wanted to style it differently, hopefully on a sunnier day. Well... this is London and that sunny day hasn't arrived, in fact; the weather has only worsened.




 I've been looking for a faux fur coat for absolutely ages but being small I've really struggled to find something that doesn't drown me. I recently made a trip to Copenhagen (I will write about this soon) and if you've visited in winter you'll know all of the girls are in fur; this just made me more determind to find something. I searched Oxford Street, bought nothing & left needing a strong espresso martini... I honestly hate that place! I then decided it was time to search online & of course I fell in love with Gucci's take on Joseph's Technicolour Dream Coat. I'm not going to get into an ethical debate surrounding the topic of real fur, but anyway it just would've swallowed me up, so again... a no. 

I popped into Zara a few days later & a coat which had been shoved on a rail with some jumpers in the ladies section caught my eye.. I loved it and was totally shocked when I looked for the size & it     was 13-14yrs.                                      
HA! Yes, this coat is from Zara Kids & is £39.99. 

I then started having one of those heart vs. head moments. I was in love with this super soft teddy bear coat but what if I was walking down the street and passed a 5 year old wearing the same coat as me... well who the hell cares?! A 90 year old could buy the same ladies size 8 coat as a 22 year old so f*ck it, I was just going to make it my own. I hunted through my mum's sewing room and found some buttons, needle & thread (I hope she doesn't read this, she'll probably charge me for those) and attached a black faux collar I already had. VOILA!







1. Zara Colourful Kids Faux Fur Jacket 
£ 39.99 here

If you're not pocket sized I found some alternate options:
Asos £ 36.00 here
Religion £ 130.00 here
Lipsy £ 150.00 here

2. Jack Wills Fernham Highwaisted Super Skinny Jean
£ 49.95 here

3. & Other Stories Pointed Leather Boots
£ 125.00 here

4. Helen Moore @ Selfridges Faux Fur Collar
£ 35.00 here

5. Hermรจs Grey Kelly Bag
Ok, so if you're as obsessed with Hermรจs as I am you'll already know there is no way you are going to get your hands on a Kelly bag unless you join the crazy waiting list or buy vintage / pre-owned. I am so lucky that my darling friend used to work for Hermรจs & is probably one of the most generous people I know.
Ok so here are your options: 


You can find a good quality vintage piece here in black for roughly £ 5,000.00, but I will warn you now... these bags in different colours & exotic leathers sell for up to £ 50,000.00 + 

So I trawled the internet trying to find you guys affordable options... I really struggled. I think it's important to remember why these items have such long waiting lists, they are extremely well made, luxury items. You are not just paying for the name tag but the quality of the leather. 
Here are some similar designs: 

Aspinal of London  £ 595.00  here
Dolce & Gabbana £ 1,300.00 here
Ferragamo £ 1,585.00 here
Gucci  £ 1,630.00  here
