As soon as I saw this coat on ASOS Curve, I wanted it. I popped it in my shopping bag awaiting pay day, and then it was gone. So it became an obsession. I was checking the website daily, and it was never in stock. I tweeted the ASOS Curve buyer and she told me unfortunately that was the end of it. I was distraught (well not quite, but I was disappointed) so I gave up. Then on Saturday I was checking my saved items on ASOS and low and behold, it was available in my size. It was meant to be.
Now I have my usual problem with this coat, in that my massive bum means I'd need to size up to get it to fasten properly, but then it looks like I am wearing my dad's coat, so I went for the "ability to only fasten the top buttons" option. I'm ok with that.
Studs, military and pleather... what's not to love? Well - apart from the dodgy fish like smell from the pleather which I am currently febreezing the heck out of, I think this coat was worth my obsessing.
I wore it with a slouchy jumper and a striped pencil skirt. The quest for tights continues. I ordered a couple of pairs from Evans but they were round my knees by lunch time so I'm going to check out "We Love Colors" as recommended by the lovely Hanna. If that fails me, it's back to leggings for me.
I'm quite fond of the pencil skirt, slouchy top look at the moment.
