If there’s one thing I didn’t think I needed, it was another coat. Since inflicting an unofficial spending ban upon myself after the ‘big-sort-out’, I’d resisted the sales, ordered my wardrobe (and realised that, nope, I do not need another thing) and stayed strong…until I saw this coat. ‘Stay controlled woman!’ I hear you cry, ‘You’re never going to afford a deposit with good outerwear, girl!’- but hear me out, I promise!
…To me, this little bad boy combined the perfect elements of both smart and practical- it was a parka and more ‘girlie’ than Gallagher plus it had structure making it smart and rain proof too- huzzah! Okay, I might look like I’m going mountain climbing every time I walk into Riding House for a meeting, and it may get a little bit hot all up in here when I step into the Bakerloo line- but if January is going to keep up this cold act it has going on, I want to be warm, buddy. Excused? Spending ban resumed.
