As many of you know, my favourite book is Carol by Patricia Highsmith. When I saw this coat on navabi, I thought ‘that’s a Carol coat’ and instantly set about making it mine. Upon closer inspection, Carol never wears a coat like this, but it’s very much got the right vibe, and I just love it. It’s a beautiful colour, and it’s so rare to find an elegant coat with a hood- usually it’s all parkas and rain macs. This coat is 100% pure merino wool so it’s not only soft and luxurious but warm. I feel regal as hell in this coat. This weekend I paired it with my recent hero item: my Junarose leopard print trousers. Why has it taken me this long to own a pair of leopard print trousers? Oh yeah, because no one has made them in my size before. More of these, please, plus size retailers!
