Yeti Dreams

Once in a while, an item of clothing appeals to you and choirs of heavenly Angels sing. That what happened when I saw this piece. Every Winter I have a tradition that I purchase a new fur (faux) coat, usually leopard print. This year I decided to go to something a little different!


Coat - Simply Be, Dress - Grazia For Simply Be, Leggings - Newlook Inspire, Boots - Yours Clothing, Glasses - Pull&Bear.

Oh lord this coat. Just look at it. The ombré, the texture of the fur, the lack of collar - it is pure heaven. Not only is it life alteringly warm but it's also such a statement piece. The fur is in the style of a shaggy Yak haha and although it does produce a hefty amount of fluff, especially when worn near black clothing, it is more than worth it. I got a 26 and due to my huge boobs I was worried it may not fit very well especially because Simply Be sizing can be 'unusual' but the sizing of this is perfect! The hooks to do it up close perfectly on me without pulling and the arms are more than roomy enough. I just can't come up with enough good things to say about it.


This dress is another fabulous offering from Simply Be. My goth roots mean I love love love a bit of velvet but I find, more often than not, velvet dresses tend to be cut in a bland, dowdy style whereas this bad boy is great. The cold shoulders and the high neck give it such an edge and the Raven blue colour is flawless. It will always remind me of my boyfriend because I wore it on our first date and he always tells me that it's his favourite <3, which ultimately, makes me love it more. These boots were a wonderful gift from the Yours Clothing Cardiff store and they're a EEE fit which means the calf fit is fantastic and there is more than enough room in them to wear them with trousers tucked into them if you're a trouser or Jean fan! 

 
Speaking of my boyfriend. This is Chris. I met him online in September and in no other circumstance has the phrase 'when you know, you know' been more applicable. Meeting this man has changed my life, he is my lobster and my other half. I have never felt this way about another human being and frankly before I met Chris, I never thought I would feel this way about another human being. People may think it is far too early to know this but I know that this is the man I'm going to marry. He is golden.

Lots Of Love,

  1. You are fucking devine! I love everything about this post. I wish I could wear velvet but the texture freaks me out. Love to look at it though! Congratulations on finding your lobster! You're right, when you know, you know. I got engaged to my husband after being together less than 8 weeks and 5 years later I am besotted with him. Good going lady, keep being amazing! xx

  2. OMG that when you know you know feeling is AWESOME! I knew within four days of going out with my now husband of 17 years that I would marry him (and I'd never wanted to get married.....!!). So pleased for you and Chris :D :D

    Also, as usual, you look fucking amazing in the dress and coat, I so love your style.

  3. I never really believed in love at first sight but 2 things have shaken that belief a friend of mine went to London for an art school interview over 20 years ago and stayed with a friend of the families daughter, they were married by the end of the week and still together today. Then when I kissed my now Husband for the first time I felt a tingle like electricity I have never felt with anyone else. In further news your outfit rocks and that coat is perfection x
