Wrapping Up

Ah, fur coats, I’ve gone from zero to hero with them over the space of a few weeks and this is my second one now. It’s from H&M and although not quite as fluffy as my Daisy Street version, it’s still stroke-able, very stroke-able indeed. I wore this outfit to the Clothes Show last weekend. This coat has become my new ‘every day’ one, as it’s so warm, but practical and flattering.

I did spot it in H&M at the beginning of the Autumn and loved it. For £50 though I couldn’t justify the price for yet another coat. I have so many already! But then I went into the Manchester branch and it was there, glaring at me, making me fall in love. I stepped a bit closer to find a massive 50% off it! I just had to have it in my life. For a few pence short of £25 it was well worth the investment. As you can also see I’ve got a bit of a thing for garments with panels of faux leather on at the moment too. These panel legging/trousers are from H&M too and only cost around £12.99. When I first bought them I wasn’t too sure about them as they were completely out of my comfort zone and they looked a bit like scuba diving trousers! Alas, they are so flattering!!!! I need more in my life, one pair isn’t enough!! H&M seem to have stopped selling them though which absolutely sucks ass. I braved my bowler hat in the end too, which once again is from H&M. I don’t own much stuff from there, but I do seem to like wearing exclusively H&M when I do crack out the odd piece.
In other news, I start my new job officially after Christmas. I’ve been struggling working part time as a communications executive at a digital design company. An endlessly cool job and environment but just didn’t pay the bills!! So I’ve gone onwards and upwards and landed a job as PR assistant at a productions company, which is proving to be fun!! I haven’t worked full time properly since before uni though so it’s taking a bit of adjusting too at the moment, as I’m doing 3 days at the old place and 2 at the new during the cross over and I’ll be working monday to friday from the new year, so apologies if you notice a lull in blog updates in the meantime!!

Love your coat, I've got one similar and it's so nice to wear. I just started a new job in Manchester, back working full time again with a 2hr commute each way! It was really tough at first but after two weeks I'm getting used to it. Hoping to sell up and move soon. Good luck with your new job, hope it all goes well, Emma x


I love furry leopard print coats, but I don't think I can pull them off! I have one I got specifically to wear to a gig and it's just been hanging in my wardrobe since…
