A Very Oversized Coat.

Sunday, 11 January 2015

Hooray! My second post of 2015! And it's an outfit post from my day at the V&A with Sherida. One of my best discoveries as of late has been hitting up my local Charity Shops for Coats. I've found that they are generally of impeccable quality, and very very affordable, making it a win win situation for me! I found this almost ankle-length Larry Levine number in a British Heart Foundation shop for only £15 and it just had to come home with me! I love longline coats but they're generally very pricey and to be honest not that warm (gotta keep it practical people!) so i was super happy to find this was both very warm and still ticked the boxes aesthetically for me.

I have so much planned for the blog this year! From potentially dabbling into the world of youtube and documenting my travels. To investing in a new camera (I bought myself the 700D!) and generally trying to up my game photographically and creatively. It's hard when you work full time in a career that doesn't have much to do with photography, fashion or beauty but in the same vain, i wouldn't have it any other way! I'll be applying for my masters in Architecture soon, so I might be going off to university come September which will give me a little more time on my hands to enjoy my little space on the internet. What are your new years resolutions or plans? :)

  1. Another advantage of getting coats from charity shops is that they're usually one of a kind. You end up not having the same coat as every other Thumbelina, Dascha & Harriet. Good luck with your plans! x

  4. Love this outfit and I agree - charity shops can be great places to find coats! The one I'm wearing today is from Oxfam and I've actually been looking for something like it for years. Nice jumper & boots too! :)

  9. OH man, just glancing through the pictures, I was thinking 'oh wow I like that coat, it looks like it's from such and such store' and when I read that you found it in a thrift shop I was just SCREAMING (internet screaming, not IRL screaming) because I really want like, 2 really solid, lovely + quality coats that I can love & use for years to come. I wasn't sure if I wanted to thrift them or just splurge on some ~trendy coats online. Your beautiful ensemble has inspired me to keep searching in thrift stores for a ride or die coat. Thank you!

    I feel the need to also add that your hair + bone structure are v striking !!!
