After a miserable day on Saturday spent cradling a cup of tea forlornly waiting for the rain to stop (it never did), Sunday proved to be one of those perfect, Wintery days where it’s so sunny it almost makes you think the cold weather ain’t so bad after all.
So as tempting as it was to stay under the the duvet all day long, we forced ourselves out of the door and into Hyde Park for a walk – if only to validate spending the rest of the day on the sofa. As you might of guessed from my previous post, a camel coat has been top of my list since we’ve delved firmly into sweater weather and the hunt is finally over thanks to Vestiare Collective. If you haven’t used Vestiare before, its a resale site for designer and luxury fashion with both second-hand and new items up for grabs. There’s no bidding like eBay so you can purchase your item straight away and everything’s quality controlled so you know you’re getting exactly what’s stated. Plus, as it was originally founded in Paris (but has since opened an office in London), there’s always plenty of French favourites from the likes of Isabel Marant, Vanessa Bruno, Iro, Sandro and Maje.
This robe like coat is by Bash, and at £160 was a bit of a bargain when you consider Topshop and Zara’s outerwear offerings sell for about the same. And maybe the one perk of being quite petite is that long coats really are just that. This one really does feel like I’m wearing a dressing down out and about. But for someone who values comfort above all else, that’s no bad thing.
