To paraphrase that great crooner, Dean Martin: “You’re snow bunny ’til some bunny loves you, you’re snow bunny ’til some bunny cares…”. And actually you’re no snow bunny until you have a great winter coat. And I’ve found mine!
Walking through Zara, and there it was. I tried it on, and I love it. I need at least a M, but I might order L, in order to wear more than just a thin blouse under it. This puffer jacket (£109) is much more elegant than the ones Zara did last winter, as it doesn’t have all that cheap looking gold hardware or those fiddly belts. The colour is a pale silvery grey (admittedly I don’t know how water resistant it is, so I might still need to keep my old North Face for those really wet days), but it looks lovely and is warm (fleece lined and filled with 20% feathers and 80% down). Coming to my rabbit warren very soon…
And while I am on the matter of soft and furry, I tried on a fake fur gilet (£65) in TopShop (here is the link to the mink one (pictured below), as the black version isn’t online), which has potential, although I did think it was a bit straight cut for me. Size down – this is me in the size 8. TopShop do good fake fur, so I will be keeping an eye out for more fake fur options as the winter stock continues to come in:
Now, we all make a mistake or two, don’t we?! Here’s mine (£50 from River Island). Yes, I love green, yes, I love paisley, yes, I love blazers. But I don’t think that this item actually works. I don’t think the colour is right. Or the fabric. So, back it goes.
