Happy Bonfire Niiiiight! I was away last year and missed it (which I was bitter about until Christmas, I won't lie), so this year I'm armed and ready to go with a handful of sparklers and the enthusiasm of a child. Anyway, I'm pretty sure you didn't come here to listen to me pour my heart out about sparklers, so I'll move onto the outfit.
Yes, welcome to part two of my collab with Reiss, and I don't think anyone will be surprised to learn that I went for a (fax) fur coat. I'm sure we're all aware of this coat's pale pink sister, which is one of the most beautiful jackets I've ever laid eyes on in real life FYI, but I decided to go for this beautiful burgundy one in the end as I wear dark colours so often. How friggin' Autumnal is it!? I love it. It's as heavy and as warm as a real fur - note that it's November and I only have a t-shirt on underneath, beautiful stuff - but without having to hurt any animals in the making. I honestly can't say enough good things about it (stop flirting, Amy, play it cool..). I decided to go for a tonal look, just call me The Human Grape, and paired it with a burgundy tee and coated jeans which, I have to say, have garnered a LOT of attention. They're somewhere in the middle of jeans and leather trousers and seem to intrigue people far and wide as to what they're made of. I've said it before and I'll say it again; you can never go wrong with a piece of clothing that also doubles up as a conversation starter... anything to stop talking about the weather for once.
And that's Part II! I hope you liked it and I shall return with another outerwear delight on Sunday for part three!
