This is my new coat! I still have my winter coat from last year, which is lovely and snuggly, but I really needed a coat for inbetween the seasons. A cardigan and a scarf was just not cutting it anymore. I had my sights set on a simple mac, as they are timeless and classic, but when I saw this charming coat on the Topshop website, I knew it was the one for me. I saw in real life shopping with a friend, but this was before payday so I decided to hold off. Then, after being paid and deliberating over it, I decided to get it. Then, typical, it was sold out in my size in store! I finally got my hands on it last week after ordering it online where it wasn't sold out. It has a lovely ribbon rose on the collar and rose shaped buttons on the cuffs also. I am slightly scared of getting the cuffs dirty though.
This is what I wore underneath it, to go and eat South American food at Las Iguanas and watch Inglourious Basterds over the bank holiday weekend. It's my new 'goth' dress, as I have affectionately nicknamed it after Scott complaining that it was too 'gothy'. I like it. It's a litle less colour than I would normally wear, but I quite liked that about it. There really is something so chic and simple about black outfits.
P.S. The shoes are also new! I was searching for the perfect red skirt but couldn't find one so the perfect red shoes had to do instead. You can see them in more detail here.
