Inspector gadget

#teenvogue // ZARA bag, jumper & coat (similar, on sale), CATZARI hat (here), KURT GEIGER boots (similar) , TOPSHOP jeans

Sometimes I get the urge to emulate my childhood heroes, case in point; Inspector Gadget (but my hat is the upgraded version, no?). I saw this cashmere coat a while ago on the Zara website and while attempting to still my beating heart, I saved it away in a folder well aware of the fact that I did not need another coat, let alone one that cost over £150. Going from a one-coat-per-winter childhood into a 10-coats-in-two-months apocalypse that's exploded all over my room is however one of the indulgences I don't scold myself so much for; after all, coats are more practical that the majority of my wardrobe.
Lo and behold; some patience, sale magic and a little Christmas money later, I caved. I suppose it goes towards fulfilling my intention of starting the year as I intend on ending it; wrapped in cashmere, alone, with my cats and a jar of nutella.
It's becoming a bit of a tradition, that.

  5. I think one never has too many coats. After all, they're (usually) the first item you notice in a winter outfit. Hence the importance of having several different ones so you don't look like you're always wearing the same one (or that might just be me being a little weird with this sort of things). I support your purchase! And totally admire your patience (i'm rubbish at waiting for sales)!! x

Hey you! How are you today? Your hair looks awesome like that. Thanks for taking the time to comment, I love hearing what you guys think and value every word you write more than you could possibly imagine. With that in mind, I value your constructive criticism too; if you disagree with something I've said, if you think I could have mentioned something else or if you want me to discuss something in the future, I want to know. However, there is a clear difference between constructive criticism and rudeness; the latter will be receive a meet and greet from my delete button. I will find you, and I will lick you; no one wants that, so play nice.
