Phooey, it's Coat Weather


Ugh, it's full on Winter and I hate wearing Winter clothes.   Having to lug on Grandma-ish and Mumsy cardis, big woolly coats and sensible shoes...blechhhh.  And no matter how little you wear underneath a coat, you always feel huge and fat.  Maybe I'm just in a whingy mood cause I'm posing in 2 degree Celcius and I'm freezing? 
 
I miss my pretty dresses.



I do try and spice up a long plain coat with lots of accessories. 
Bakelite makes you feel much better, instantly.

You're welcome.

  1. Pointy boobs FTW!!! (I recently did a similar shot on my blog LOL).

    I actually love winter. Coats and wool stockings and grandma cardigans....I am a 31yo old lady.

    1. I do like my Grandma cardis. I'm just having a pre-midwinter jicker whinge. :)

  2. I actually like my autumn and winter wardrobe so much better than my summer wardrobe ^^
    I am 27 and I love my granny cardigans and my knitted sweaters ;-) and lovely accessories like scarves and caps, of course. The only thing I really hate about winter is to get wet feet (because of snow) and messy hair before the day has just begun.

  3. LOVE your Freddies top and jeans! I have really fallen in love with their stuff and you're making me want one of their lurex tops :D
    I am actually excited for coat weather! I just bought myself a coat online that will be waiting for me to wear when I get home :P

  4. Oh, I love this look. I'm really going to have to break down and purchase a pair of FOP jeans. I know they are machine wash, where VOH is dry clean. :-/ Anyway, This would be my go to in the winter. I'm more of a pants look than a dress/skirt gal.

    1. Yes, one pair of Freddies jeans will see you thru for a jeans example in a vintage wardrobe.

  5. I know how you feel - I much prefer my summer wardrobe and hate being bundled up in the winter! We are FINALLY getting some hot weather here in London, so for the first time this year I have been able to wear sandals and no cardi or jacket! Woohooo!

  6. You are looking fabulous! Have you thought about buying/making some wool skirts for winter? I'm hoping to do that this winter. Wear some thick stocking and cute winter boots. I know I got tired of wearing jeans all winter long.

    1. Hell nope. My family is lucky if I sew on a button.....I have always detested sewing. You should see what I attempted to make in Home Ec class in High School....shudder.

    1. Thanks Therese! It's actually 4 different colors, one on each nail, including some stamping! I have a blog post on them coming up soon so keep me bookmarked!

  8. Trade ya any day - when it gets over 62 I want to melt! I love the fog and cool, drippy, damp days. Right now am stuck in LA, Cali where it's atypical for mid summer - rain showery over-cast and major humid...but I will take it over 102 degrees F! Cannot wait to leave and get back home...and then wait until 'our' winter returns. I am hearty and don't pile on coats until it's down in the low 40's!

  9. Oh my word, you look magnificent! I recently bought a similar vintage black Persian lambswool coat and am now itching for cooler weather even more so that I can partner it with jeans, too. Thank you for the killer styling inspiration!
