I'm one of those girls who need not just one but several of
warm and of course classic coats to hide in during autumn
and winter.
I got one in black, red and also one salt & pepper and now
these two that are my latest additions...

The white/green/navy one is my favorite of all my coats,
it was a bargain that I snagged while we were on vacation
in Sweden last month, it's a vintage 1960's, so damn nice.
It cost 25 Kr (ca £2.50) from the Red Cross charity shop.

The mustard coat has got a detachable hood.
I got this on eBay last week for £4.99.
I think it's from Primark's autumn collection from one or
two years ago, still, it's a timeless piece.

And this is me in my faux leopard fur, can't see much of
it tho...

I am so envious of your cute coats. You are gonna look freakin fabulous this Fall and Winter. *SERIOUSLY*
You look great in your picture and from what I can see the jacket looks awsome on you. (I knew it would)

I have 2 faux fur coats. One is dark brown the other white with grey cuffs and collar. I am keeping my eyes wide on the lookout for one or two more... but have not had much luck so far.

I agree a girl could never have too many coats especially if they are colorful coats. love the yellow coat.
I found lots of Primark coats that look vintage. I also like to hide in fur your faux bangs too. your look great for being a sick ducky.
*sends healing energies*

Vintage coconut: Naw... Don't be. :)
Thank you so much for the compliments.

Oompa Loompa fur? I thought they were extinct. ;))
Is that like a green fun fur or something?
Leopard should be quite easy to find for a tiny sum where you live.
I tried on a real leopard fur (from the 1950s) last year but it felt SO wrong for some reason, I rather wear real rabbit.

La Dama: Primark always have a rather large selection of coats for a very good price, this one wasn't in my local Primark what I know about but now they renovated and expanded the store so it's close to Oxford Street selection.

Ha ha! Doing hair and make up was a bit of a task, feeling seasick and unsteady. :P Thanks. <3

*busvissling* You look gorgeous in that leopard...Nice coats you found, I bet that mustard one goes wonderfully with your dark hair. I myself wouldn't mind a winter coat in red, been on my list for a while.

Gillar båda jackorna, himla fina! I Sverige kan man allt fynda:) jag har dock inte hittat någon bra höst/vinterjacka än....det som är jobbigt med Sverige är ju att det blir så jäkla kallt på vintern. När jag bodde i London kunde jag nästan klara mig utan en riktig ska man ju hitta en supervarm som samtidigt är snygg och gärna vintage...inte alltid det lättaste:)

I'm right with you on the coat train. I buy them whenever I can just so I dont get bored in the winter. The winter where I live is pretty long. Thanks for passing by! I'm following you now.
