Cat Eyes and Duffel Coats

Eeeeeepp!  It's Christmas week, how exciting.  I have two days left at work this year which feels amazing to say.  I am ready to kick back and relax with my family and enjoy the festivities.  I really wanted to share a couple of my recent purchases with you, both of which I picked up in the sales.  I wanted a high wool count coat to keep me warm this winter and this one stood out to me, generally duffel coats are way too short for me to consider.  I really love Dickens and Jones, their stuff is always really nicely made and the insides look as good as the outside does.  It was originally £199 and I got it for £149 but the very next day (after the Black Friday sales had finished) it had been reduced to £119!  SOB.  I hadn't even had chance to wear it so I took it back and got my £30 refunded.  I just looked now to get the link and it is down to under £60.  Damn.  Snap it up, it's an awesome coat at an amazing price! 

I wanted to buy a back up pair of the black Orla Kiely Abigail heels when they got reduced in the sale but I wasn't quick enough.  I quickly decided to get a pair of the Audrey boots and am so glad I did, they are just as comfy as the shoes and are a great price at £80 - half price in the sale.  Most sizes are still available if you want to grab a pair.  Both the shoes and the boots are super comfy, the platform means you don't feel the height of the heel.  I successfully wandered round Birmingham for an afternoon without feeling them.  I recently received an awesome pair of Just Cavalli Cat Eye sunglasses from Sunglasses Shop and have been dying to wear them.  It's been so gloomy recently but we had some sunshine yesterday and I felt so glam wearing them.  The Cat Eye is my favourite style, I always feel like a 50's starlet when I slip on a pair.  There is still time for last minute gifts, Sunglasses Shop have put together an awesome gift guide and are offering 25% discount using code 25XMS by midnight 24th December.  I really like these Michael Kors frames

One last thing from me is to announce the winner of the Elephant in my Handbag fabric giveaway.  I have used to select a comment at random and the winner is comment number 13, unlucky for some, which is Hannah at Tips from my Nan, congratulations!  I will be in touch soon :)

  1. That's annoying about the sale price. It only happens when you've actually bought the garment though. if you hadn't bought it,it would still be more expensive, I guarantee. such is sod's law!!

  2. Such a lovely coat, but I hate when that happens!
