I’ve been wearing this checked duffle coat everyday since I bought it just before Christmas. It’s not quite the perfect coat (it could be warmer and the hood completely obscures my vision) but it beats wearing my 5yr old Vivienne Westwood Coat out in the rain. The other new thing is this pretty little dress which was kindly gifted by Fuse Fashion, from their Cutie range. I wore it on Boxing day but because elastic waists are often quite unflattering, this dress really needs cinching at the waist with a belt, just to give a little definition. The belt is my favourite at the moment – so good to add a bit of interesting metallic detail but since it’s metal, it’s not your best friend when you go for a big meal with family. You know the score. Basically, I’ll be leaving this belt at home when I have my Chinese New Year meal next month at my grandmas!
