At the end of last Winter I threw away the plum coloured Target coat I’d been wearing for the past two years. It was tatty looking, depsite a dry cleaning, and I knew that I’d gotten my money’s worth out of it. So I’ve been wearing a very casual duffle type of coat these last few weeks now that the weather’s truly turned cold here in Melbourne. I mean, yesterday was positively ICY, right? So it was high time for a new coat that was a little bit more tailored and chic than the duffle coat I was dagging around in, particularly to wear to work and on weekends if we go out.
I had seen some nice ones in Portmans, but ultimately I didn’t feel like they were the best quality – some of them were quite thin, but were still up around the $200 mark. When I buy a Winter coat I want warmth and value for money. So I wandered around Myer and a few other shops until I ended up in Forever New, which isn’t a shop I frequent much these days. But I was happy to discover that they have a range of coats and jackets in store in a great variety of styles. I wanted a basic black or brown coat I could wear with everything, and I found the coat pictured above. It’s the Imogen Biker Coat, and it set me back $150. It’s thick, lined, and it’s a wool blend, so it’s sure to keep me warm this Winter. I love the wide, asymetrical collar, and the zipper and gold belt give it a bit of bling for nights out. It’s comfy and stylish and I really think it looks a lot more expensive than it was!
Until next time,
I’ve had a bit of down time recently with a few colds, a sick toddler and the Easter long weekend, so I used the opportunity this couch time provided to catch up on a few films I’ve been wanting to see for a while. This also coincided with me shopping at Woolworths instead of my… Continue reading ->
– Who honestly does not book movie tickets online these days? Especially on a Friday or Saturday night? For real. Standing in a busy cinema queue is for chumps. – We got the interior of our house painted recently and even though it was painted in the same colour, it looks so FRESH and CLEAN!… Continue reading ->
I have been busy with real life stuff lately, and it’s kept me from writing the four blog posts I have hovering in my brain. I saw this last night though, and had to share it because I think it’s true. Until next time.
I am intrigued by pomegranate. I have never eaten the fruit itself, but I had a delicious salad a month or so ago that had pomegranate seeds in it that added the most tart flavour with every bite. I am not someone who generally enjoys savoury and sweet flavours mixed together (except for a lemon… Continue reading ->
I don’t know why I never knew I had normal to dry skin. It just never really dawned on me until a few years ago when I had some microdermabrasion for the first time and the lady mentioned that my skin was quite dry in places. I just though my skin was normal with a… Continue reading ->
How much do you love your bed as the weather turns cool? Like, seriously, completely burrow under the covers, wrap it around you and try to stay in it forever as the mornings stay darker and the night arrives earlier each day? Personally, I love my bed. I mean, we all do – we spend… Continue reading ->
It’s been a busy couple of weeks for new music, as I noted here. New Mumford & Sons, new Florence + the Machine, and new Of Monsters and Men, all some of my favourite bands. It makes me hopeful that their new albums are super awesome (but no pressure, guys), because I’ve loved their previous… Continue reading ->
It’s Autumn! The air is getting crisper in the morning, the evenings are getting darker earlier, and we can slowly stop waxing our legs as often for a few months, hooray! Actually, that last part is harder when you have to take a toddler to swimming lessons every Saturday morning. But still. Warm clothes! Scarves!… Continue reading ->
Once again life has been busy, so no smoothie last week unfortunately. But this week I was seized by the thought that Summer stone fruit is going to disappear from the shops soon, so I bought a peach and a nectarine spontaneously to enjoy during the week. But then I remembered how much I enjoy… Continue reading ->
