Bouclé, fur and lace...

If you have been reading this blog for a while, you will know that I love a good coat. I have one in nearly every colour under the sun but luckily there is always room for one more, especially one as lovely as this. I bought it from Topshop in the sale and although I can't see it online, my local branch had quite a few left in store. I love the sixties swing style of this and the fact that it makes me feel like Blair Waldorf is a massive bonus. Just FYI, if you are thinking of buying it, definitely size down, there is a lot of material!

Coat: Topshop, dress: Warehouse,  shoesStylist Click court shoes c/o Spartoo, tights:Falke c/o MyTights
I love love love the fact that this a bouclé coat trimmed with faux fur, it just makes me feel so darned glamorous, a very difficult thing to achieve when you are being attacked by gale force winds at every angle. Unfortunately my nail varnish let the side down by chipping every 5 minutes and looking downright awful, considering how much I loved the other shades in this Opi collection, I was really disappointed- sort it out Opi!


I picked this dress up when I was sale shopping after Christmas and I absolutely love it. Warehouse have some amazing clothes in at the moment and I loved everything about this dress from the length, to the cute collar detail and delicate lace sleeves, this is definitely a dress that is going to get a lot of wear...


MyTights sent me these gorgeous Falke tights to review and they were the perfect match for the dress. I have worked with MyTights before and they really are great, I had a seriously difficult time deciding which of the tights to review. Falke tights are wonderfully made and these are no exception, I can't wait to wear them to work, I think they will look great with a plain shift dress. I think the reason I love this outfit so much, is the mix of textures, there is something really quite glamourous about it...


What clothes make you feel glamourous? Did you pick up any bargains in the sale?

That coat is majestic, I'm a tiny bit faux fur obsessed (if you're interested i've recently done a teeny haul post on the topic :) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dMNlU6mg3Lg )

The tights are lovely as well, such a pretty shade of grey!
