Cold Weather Cool

As ya'll know, one of my favourite winter staples is a faux fur coat. I cannot get enough of them! So when Claire, the wonderful lady from Bolton based plus size boutique Curv'i'licious offered to send me this coat, I could not have been happier!

Coat - Curv'i'licious, Shirt - Charity Shop, Skirt - Charity Shop, Crop Top - Primark, Shoes - Newlook Widefit.

I genuinely think that this might be the best quality faux fur coat I have ever owned. The coat itself is very heavy duty so would need to be kept for those particularly cold days, the fur is soft and stunning and the lining has been finished inpeccably. It also has a huge diva collar, which naturally I am fully into haha. I'm wearing a size 26 which fits wonderfully because as I've said before I prefer my coats to be a little more roomy to allow you to wear whatever you want underneath it, but you could easily purchase your normal size and it would fit wonderfully. I cannot recommend it highly enough to you! Aside from the amazing coat itself, the service I received from the ladies at Curv'i'licious was fantastic, the posting speed was great as was their level of communication! 

After helping out at the SLiNK Magazine Tess Munster shoot last week I decided to embrace a little of the masculinity stylist Rivkie Baum used to shake up Tess' look whilst still keeping the outfit feminine. This shirt belongs to my man and it is a classic flannel, perfect for this weather and great to sling over any outfit to add a little edge. It's also bang on trend because tartan is huge right now and I adore this particular tartan colouring! My crop top is old Primark and although it's simple and plain, it has a cute lace design across the bust. My skirt was an amazing charity shop find and is absurdly comfortable! 

I cannot tell you how long I have been searching for a pair of soft patent brogues! When I found these in Newlook I almost lost my mind. It's easy to find brogues but they are often a hard leather and a nightmare to break in! These bad boys are from the Widefit range at Newlook and genuinely feel as if I am wearing slippers! I don't wear Widefit shoes a lot but maybe I need to start doing so haha! I love that again, these take something from more masculine fashions but still look great and feminine!

At weekends I love nothing more than lazy makeup! A little bronzer, a tiny dusting of eyeshadow, eyebrows and some lipstick is more than enough for me where I can help it. I got this lipstick on eBay and the colour is 'Plum Whiskey', I see no obvious plum in this but I do love the colour. It was super cheap and as far as I can see isn't even branded haha so it's lasting power isn't great but for a quick fix its perfect!

This afternoon my wonderful man and I plan to drink Baileys, eat mince pies and put the Christmas decorations up! What date do you think is acceptable to reach for the tinsel haha?

Lots Of Love,

  1. You look so badass in this coat!! I have a big fluffy black coat I need to photograph soon, but I keep hoping for snow, that rarely comes here.


    1. Thank you beautiful lady! You always say the nicest things to me!
      I say don't wait for the snow, crack that furry black number out and rock it! X
