I’m sure you all know how much I love red, and it just so happens to be THE colour this season. I already have a couple of red coats, but when I saw this faux fur one on the LOTD website it had to be mine! Last week I chose Lisa of the Sequinist as one of my link up favourites. She was wearing a coat very similar to this, and I was a bit sad when I read that it was sold out. But as if by magic LOTD invited me to choose some things from their website for review…and I found this lookalike 🙂
The coat feels heavenly on, it’s the softest faux fur I’ve ever touched. In fact, I think I want to hibernate in it over winter. But then I’d miss out on showing it off. It was hideously windy at the weekend when we took these photos (thanks Storm Brian!) and we were having to dodge the showers. My poor photographer (aka husband) was freezing in his T-shirt while I stayed warm and cosy in my big red coat. I’m looking forward to styling the coat different ways, and experimenting with different colour combinations. However, on a cold and windy day, teaming the red faux fur coat and black coated jeans with boots and a hat seemed the most sensible option.
Keeping the colour palette simple, I chose my red and black striped bag (the one with the magic two-way sequins, first seen here).
SHOP THE LOOK
This outfit didn’t call for much jewellery so I only added a ring and these deep red tassel earrings. Mmm…I’m thinking that shade would look good on my hair!
These boots are sooo comfortable! When I first tried them on I honestly didn’t want to take them off. The block heel makes them practical for everyday wear, and the generous width means they won’t rub or pinch. They look and feel like real suede but they are actually faux suede. Although wearing them with jeans seems like the obvious styling option, they’d also look fab with a floral print maxi dress. Scroll down to last week’s favourites and you’ll see what I mean 😉
I mentioned in my previous post that I often find heavily discounted items on members only sale sites. These Reiss jeans were one such bargain at around a third of the RRP. I rarely buy jeans online because the fit and size is really hard to get right but I decided to take a gamble. In all honesty, I’m not keen on them: they bag around the knees and they aren’t snug enough on the ankles. They are quite long so I tucked them up at the hem but that didn’t help much. I think my plain Gap skinnies would have worked better. You live and learn, right?
