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!
