Fur Coat, Big Knickers

So the incredible folks at Yours Clothing have been kind enough to send me the best early Christmas present ever - the faux fur coat I was lusting over at this years Plus North! And it is every bit as glorious as I had imagined it would be!


Coat - Yours Clothing, Dress - Rogers&Rogers at Matalan, Boots - ASOS, Belt - ASOS Curve.

I really struggle to put in to words the deep love that I feel for this coat. Nothing pleases me more in the Winter than a good faux fur coat and this year I was lacking one until this reached me in the post today! The quality is glorious - the fur itself is soft, shiny and non-malting and the lining is a beautiful brown satin. I sized up because I prefer coats to be a little bigger to go over all clothing options and the sizing is great! 


The collar is huge, which I adore. It makes the coat feel even more glamorous yet also totally snuggly! The sleeves are a great length, as I sometimes find with sizing up, the sleeve length can be an issue and my tiny hands find themselves swapped by the cuffs. 


There are a lot of faux fur coats floating around this season, in all sorts of wonderful colours! But if you are looking for the classic, glamorous and incredible versatile leopard fur - please look no further, this is the coat you have been looking for!


Whilst gushing over this gorgeous coat, I would also like to gush over this incredible, fashion forward Matalan dress! It's a maxi dress with a mesh panel from just below the knee down, two splits either side of the dress that run up to the beginning of the mesh and lovely t-shirt style sleeves. It is divine! Basically the maxi that I have been dreaming of. If I am completely honest, I was shocked when I saw this dress whilst flicking through the Matalan website because I had never thought of Rogers&Rogers as a fashion forward brand but they have gone and proved me totally wrong! The only thing I will say anot this dress is that I bought a size 39 because I wanted it baggy. Normally, I am a size 26 at my biggest and this dress fits me like the average size 26 would, so for you lovely ladies a size 26 and above, I would be a little wary of the sizing!


I fully embraced my inner fashion goth and my inner Kylie Jenner for this look. I love big, bold, dark lips, especially at this time of the year. This is the Topshop Lip Bullet in Wine Gum. It is a very moist lipstick, so can be a little tricky to apply but once on the depth and drama of the colour is incredible! 


I teamed this look with a super old ASOS Curve belt with cross detailing and equally old ASOS suede ankle boots with kitten heels. 

If you don't have a faux fur coat, or 5, in your life this Winter - I urge you to go and get one and complete you Winter Warmer's Wardrobe. 

Lots Of Love,

  1. This coat is FAB!! You look super glam & posh!

    I had to laugh when I saw your ASOS cross belt, as I have the same one and I often {okay, always} wear it with my chiffon skirted maxi...but the kicker is I ALWAYS wear mine upside down too!!!! Love you, girl! Rebel fashion chicks to the core!
