the winter coat post

I need a coat.

And not just any coat – I want a coat with the lot, the whole shebang. Warm, yes. Dress cut, yes. Soft on the outside, and smooth on the inside, like a melted chocolate Lindt ball of warmth.

You see, the winter chill has decided to hit town a tad early and rendered most of my optimistic transseasonal wardrobe of cute dresses and tights combos useless without a pretty little wrap.

Layering has hit a whole new level; think Rachel Berry from Glee.

One day I left the house wearing a dress, a cardigan, a flannelette shirt, and a jacket. And when you go back inside a cosy room and start the delayering process, you start unwrapping yourself like a pass-the-parcel. The back of my chair can only hold so many items of clothing.

So, I’m on the hunt for a winter coat. I’m thinking something warm (der Einstein), lined, with those cute toggle buttons, and a hood. And not black. There’s enough of dark colored apparel wandering around in winter as it is.

With my shiny new debit card having arrived in the mail and in my hot little hands, the entire cyberspace of online shopping has opened up to me, and I can hear that song from Aladdin in my head… A whole new world, a dazzling place I never knew… !!

And now I’m in love with a handful of snug items, and the favourites bar of my Internet browser is choc-full of clothes that I can’t afford, but would really really like (hinthint).

Augustina Coat
So in the meantime while I save my pretty little pennies, I’ll be warming up with Venti-sized green tea lattes, and so many scarves that I'm beginning to look like the crazy pigeon lady that every major city has. And let’s not forget the novelty beanie. I do love me a novelty beanie.

Which is your favourite of these coats? I'm having trouble choosing, so leave a comment!


  1. I love the Forever New cape with the wool collar, and the velvet trimmed Forever New jacket too... but I agree that Winter clothing needs to be bright and cheery to counteract the gloomy grey skies, so! my pick is the double breasted bright red coat from Forever New!

    1. Oooh I agree, the cape and the navy coat look so lovely and cosy, but I'm definitely beginning to fall head over heels for the red! <3 xx

  2. Nice collar coat! to keep out coziness this winter wear good quality jackets in awesome colors!
