Autumn Gift FairiesPosted: September 19, 2010
The gift fairies have visted me once more and left me with this coat from ASOS.
To be entirely honest with you readers, I really wasn’t stirred by the initial photo that I saw of it (not the one on the website) but thought I’d try it anyhow because well- you never know. Thank goodness I gave it a chance because it is now destined to be worn to death by me this autumn as it looks 100 times better in the flesh- so to speak- than it does in any photo.
The only thing is that my coat is a size 26 and I wear a size 28 in coats as I’m top heavy so its too tight at the bust. I can do it up but would have to be mindful of what I wear underneath as its definitely not something I can fit a winter knit under. The shape is great and I really like the lacing at the back along with the asymetric hem and flared skirt, which make me feel ever so slightly steampunk. In conclusion- approved.
I have two more pieces from ASOS to trial so I’ll do that over the coming week.
