I was holding off buying a warm coat before Christmas because I just didn’t think it was cold enough but gawd almighty it’s getting pretty chilly now so I thought right get your booty out to the shops and find a warm coat. I think January and February are the coldest months so a well lined and long lengthed coat is definitely necessary.
I’d seen this Mango coat before Christmas in a minky colour and it was £100. I don’t know the reason why I didn’t buy it then and there but I went shopping yesterday and wanted to check if it had gone into the sale. There were only two of this style coat left, one in black and one in brown. I grabbed the black one straight away and lucky I did as within seconds there were ladies hunting for another one. The price tag said it had gone down to £69.99 but when I got to the till the sales assistant said “that’ll be £49.99 please.” Don’t you just love it when that happens! £50 off the original price.
The coat is lined with real duck feather so feels so cosy on. I also love the fur hood lining as I think it looks a lot more classy and neat then the standard parka fur you see on most. The gold details make it look a little bit more formal so can be worn day and night and I got an XS. Firstly because XS was the only size left but I also like being able to pull the belt in tight to again make a warm coat look a little more sophisticated. It also has soft fur in the pockets! Yay I’ve found my favourite winter coat!
I’ve had a hunt around and you can find similar coats at www.mango.com, www.houseoffraser.co.uk and www.asos.com. I’d love to hear what your favourite coat is this winter, let me know by leaving a comment in the space below.
Wrap up warm! Love, Lottie x
