outfit

b&w

 Wearing: ASOS mono pattern coat, Shakuhachi ‘New Romantics’ dress, Louis Vuitton LV Alma BB bag and RMK ‘Idelia’ heels 

{Photos: Tom}

To me, it seems as if coats always come in the same old block colours: red coats, bottle green coats, black coats, camel coats, navy coats. I’ve always been on the hunt for interesting coats in more exciting colours, prints and textures. For example, right now I am looking for a bright yellow coat, a baby blue coat, geometric printed coats and a duo/tri-tone fur textured coat. It seems so hard to find these sorts of coats without breaking the bank. So needless to say that when I saw this coat on ASOS I happily (and impulsively) snapped it up. Finally, a coat in a print. Now to look for that yellow coat and tri-toned fur coat as well..

      thank you ester! i was so excited to see it on asos, there was a point in time where my size went out of stock and a pang of regret hit me – it came back in stock again and i snapped it up right away.

    Loving the classic colour combo and the extra radness that ASOS gem adds to the look. Gotta love an impulse purchase that works! Geometric print coats are so great, and such an easy way to add a little interest to a look.

    Oh Connie, looking for yellow again!
    I guess they’re going to look great these season.
    Growing out your fringe seems to be going well!

    Oh my goodness, I’ve never even commented here before but can I just say that you bear a striking resemblance to Keira Knightley here? The angular jaw and face structure, the petite figure AND your new hairstyle make you two uncannily similar!

      thank you hannah for the encouragement to continually persevering to grow it out. i always have the urge to go back to old times everytime i see someone with bangs!

    I’m sure parting with bangs can be a little hard at first and even seeing you with a different hair style take me some time to get use to it. It gives you a very different look actually. You look more settled and sophisticated. I like this red heels. It’s gorgeous and definitely matches your Alma Bag =) We definitely seldom bump into printed coat but it is definitely more popular these days. You look good in it =)
