At the beginning of this season, I made a list of a few key things I wanted to add to my wardrobe for winter and I've slowly been ticking items off, thanks to a huge sell-off of lots of high heel boots and shoes as well as some older coats that I've not worn for a while.
I have burgundy on the brain this season as you'll know from my last post and it just continues with these Burgundy Loafers from Van Dal at Gray & Osbourn. I spotted them when I was choosing items to feature on this last post and they kept calling to me thanks to those little google ads that pop up on your screen when you're on Facebook or Yahoo....annoying but effective in my case.
A burgundy coat was also on my list (coat obsession - I know) and I spotted an advert for Atterley Road a few weeks back telling me that all their coats had 20% off...so I went for a look. I couldn't find a burgundy one in the current season stock but on a whim, had a quick look at their sale stock and found this absolute beauty...it's called the 'Fun Coat' (??) from Selected Femme. Wool mix, longer length, half price, no brainer. And when I logged in to pay, it turned out I had Atterley Road loyalty points which took a further £6.50 off the price. Love it.
And here is the whole outfit...just about enough burgundy for me to be happy! Excuse the 'post-formal' messy hair :)
Coat - Selected Femme @ Atterley Road
(still some sizes left - I bought the 10 & it's generous. Extra 10% off with EXTRA10 until Thursday midnight)
Denim Shirt - White Company Outlet
Black Skinny Jeans/Trousers - H&M
Black Cross-Body Bag - Boden (past season - similar here)
Burgundy Patent Loafers - Van Dal @ Gray & Osbourn
I can't recommend both of these items enough. The shoes are the perfect trans-seasonal pair...more substantial than a pump for cooler days but storms or not, it's still mild this week - and wet, so these shoes are getting lots of wear. They are also very comfortable as you'd expect from Van Dal. Perfect for my wider foot (and the old bad back - which wasn't happy to have heels worn the night before these pictures).
The coat is VERY warm - a lovely weight, fully lined and beautifully finished. The longer length means it ticks the Irish 'Big Coat' box (a bit of an in-joke for my local readers...have you got your 'Big Coat' out yet??)
OK - I'm going to try to stop with the burgundy now....try that is...I can't help thinking how lovely the Clarks Cross Body Bag would look with this outfit.
