winter style

Winter is coming... Actually I think its already here, and although I hate the freezing temperatures it does give me an excuse to crack out this awesome fur coat. I don't understand the need to wear real fur when some fake furs can look this good! It has the look of a gilet but actually has heavy knit sleeves. I think the ratio of neat slim sleeves and the slightly longer length stops the fur looking too chunky and stops it making me look a few sizes bigger than I am, which can happen with fur coats.

This weekend I am excited to get my Christmas 'on', decorating my house for the first time! Making some Christmas crafts and maybe some gingerbread men just to help put me fully in the spirit! I still have a whole load of shopping and presents to buy but Im slowly ticking things off the list! What do you guys do to put yourselves in the Christmas mood?

  2. This coat is so beautiful and you look gorgeous! I agree with you - why do people wear real fur when faux looks this good and comes without the cruelty?! Did you buy this coat from the Cristina Gavioli website, or do you have a link for somewhere else?

    I'm excited to get my Christmas on by watching my favourite Christmas films (Elf and Love, Actually) and eating mince pies!
