HtCC: Winter Calls

I love love love winter coats. You’re going to be wearing this for at least half of the year – you need to find one that’s perfect for you. If I could, I would have lots of coats in all different colours – although from my selection below, you can probably guess that they’ll all be in a certain style!

First up from ASOS, where I have bought my last three winter coats from (all still going strong and looking good!) is this purple coat with the folded over collar* (£59.50) – I love the buttons on this coat, much prettier than the usual ones that come with a coat! This red fit and flare coat* (£70) is also cute, although looks a little short here. (I like a coat that’s about knee length)

From Dorothy Perkins, this military frock coat* (£75) is again, a bit short, but would be a comfy coat for the weekend to wear with jeans. Topshop have this cute “oatmeal” coloured clasp coat* (£85) which also has a hood (I love hoods on coats) while Matalan has this red longline coat with a belt * for just £45.

Finally, from the Curve section of ASOS is this yellow coat* (£75) which I love (and obviously, instantly thought of Sarah Mia for it!) or if you don’t mind waiting a bit longer to get a coat, this cute charcoal coat* is $74.99 from Modcloth (although you will end up paying duties and tax, sob)

If these are a bit expensive for you, why not have a look at A Thrifty Mrs’ post about purse friendly coats.

Perfect Party Dress (part 1 of eleventy billion)

Who says that a party dress has to be encrusted in sequins? I’d rather have this “Kettle Corn Dress” in “sunset” by Emily and Fin from Modcloth any day. I think I’d wear this with a few petticoats underneath, a la Isla Fisher in Confessions of a Shopaholic – except instead of the multi colours, I think I’d have a gradient, so it faded from the red dress to white.

(Its also available in this “afternoon” colourway, y’know, for frolicing in fields. I don’t ever find myself in that sort of situation, but IF I DID, this would be perfect.)


I love anything that encourages people to get involved with raising money for a charity, especially if its a cancer charity. (What can I say, I’m very biased). You probably know at least one bloke who is doing Movember this year, where men are sponsored to grow a tashe, and raise money for mens health, more specifically prostate cancer.

Unfortunatly, my ‘tache growing skills are not that great due to…well, y’know, being a girl. But there are other ways to get involved ladies! Alice‘s latest project was creating the Tache Off app for 118 118’s Facebook page where if you tache-ify (yep, thats a word) your photo, they will donate £1 for each pic made.

Theres also a huge amount of jewellery especially that will help you join in – here’s a few of my faves!
