Will you be cool or cosy?

In the Daily Mail a couple of weeks ago, UK Vogue editor Alexandra Shulman wrote about the essential leather jacket as an investment buy and I quote "If you have to make a choice, I would probably pass on a new winter coat, stick with what you already have and buy a leather jacket instead."
Well, I'm not sure she would be saying that if the article was printed this week, as its been really cold and chilly and if you haven't got a decent winter coat or jacket, you're not going to make do with what you've got and splurge on a leather jacket.
I browsed the Dorothy Perkins website earlier for 2 reasons-one was because I've not been on it before and secondly because I thrifted a great little as new Dorothy Perkins brown padded parka jacket today for £5, so I wanted to see if it was online. Well, it wasn't but is very similiar to the cream jacket, but without the buttons.
So, as I love style but I'm not cool enough to rock the leather jacket in this cold spell of weather, here are some cosy, stylish jackets available online at Dorothy Perkins now-click on my link to see their offerings.

Black Ruche Seam Jacket, £25
Cream jacket, £40

Grey wool jacket, £50

Navy Military jacket, £50


Have a great weekend everyone and for those who participate, Happy Halloween!!

What a great array of wintry jackets! Most are too short for MN winters - I need something that keeps me warm down to my knees - but they'd be great for right now. Hope we'll get to see your thrifted version soon!

Hi Sal-I do have a longer coat, so this style is in addition to what I have, so is ideal really! I'll show it soon, its being laundered, haha!!

Definitely nice coats! I have a long wool toggle coat that does me good throughout awful Toronto winters, I will never give it up though I will admit I do get sick of it a month or so into winter :)

Sharon Rose said...

Hi S-a long coat is the way to go, especially for you gals in Canada and parts of the USA!!
