Is there anything more perfect than a vintage style fit-n-flare lavender coat with (gasp) a pink velvet Peter Pan collar...? Of course there isn't! ;) This beauty is from Fever London, the brand I worked with earlier in the year after winning their brilliant competition to find five women of different sizes to model their SS14 collection (check out the post here if you missed it).
Their collections always have a touch of the vintage about them, and this coat is the perfect statement piece for winter. The colour, fabric, fit and box pleats are all divine, and just when you think it couldn't get any cuter... there's a row of buttons in the pleat at the back!! (Scroll down to see close up detail shots.) I almost had a fit when I saw them - it's the most gorgeous and unusual detail.
Somehow I conjured up (what seemed like) a strange colour palette of lavender and pink with grey, tan and deep red - but I loved it. I've said it before, but a tan anything will always complement my hair, so I don't have to worry about tan boots/bag/belt, etc. not actually matching anything else in my outfit.
Have you found the perfect winter coat that does all the styling for you? Let me know what you're wearing as your statement outerwear this year!
P.S. If you haven't yet, please don't forget to vote for Not Dressed As Lamb in the UK Blog Awards (I'm entered in the Retail & Fashion category) - your vote would mean so much to me. It's very quick and easy... Thank you!!
