the perfect winter coat



I don't actually need a new winter coat. I buy one every one but I think Topshop have been selling this coat for 3 years running now and every year I do the same thing. I realise that it's my ideal winter coat, look at the price (£89) and talk myself out of it, then fail in finding something just as nice and just buy another coat that still leaves me pining for this one. In theory it's just a simple duffle coat which makes you think there will be something very similar that I'll like just as much for cheaper elsewhere. My three years of searching says otherwise!

But you know what? After wanting it for 3 years, I think I might actually buy it. And Topshop are currently offering 20% off with their SCVNGR promotion. And it'll go with everything. And it'll not be one of those coats that are completely out of trend next year so I'll get lots of wear from it. And... Okay, I think I've convinced myself. Now, what colour do I choose?

  1. I got the 'petrol blue' one last year, wish I'd got the navy as I've kind of gone off of it! Funny how I got the different colour so it wasn't boring.. ha x

  2. I really like the red one but I usually tend to stick to darker things in A/W so I´d go for the navy one. It´s lovely.

  3. Your right about the same coat 3 years in a row becasue my mum has bought i twice. In red. She has one for smart occasions and one for everyday. haha. The red is gourgeous though my mum has great taste x

  5. I do this so often, then by the time I decide to finally take the plunge it's gone! You should go for it. The blue one is my fave :) and those gloves are so sweet.

  6. I've recently bought the navy one and it's gorgeous - and you're probably less likely to get bored of it in the next few years! Definitely buy!

  8. I'd love the black version! Unfortunately I've already bought my winter coat for this year so I couldn't justify buying this one too. Maybe next year!

  11. I have a thing about gloves and those you've pictured are just so adorable! I prefer the navy coat and although I find the price ridiculous if you've been wanting it for 3 yearss grab it now before it's too late! I always see things i want but put it off and totally miss my chance to buy them xx

  12. I got this coat in navy back in 2009 and it did me perfectly then and for winter 2010 and will be coming out again this winter - definitely recommend getting it, it really will last so the £89 price tag is neither here nor there when you justify it like that hehe! X

  14. I love the red, but the navy will probably go with more stuff... but then again the red is more colour pop. Buy both! Lol, I so wish this was an option in life, when you can't choose just buy both :L
    Much Love

  16. I think a winter coat is definitely worth that money. Considering you wear it almost every day and a decent one will see you through a fair few winters :) xxx

  17. Those mittens with the face on are so cute! I'd go for the blue one... but the orange is nice too ( not very helpful I know!) x

  18. I have to agree compleatly with you about these Topshop duffel's, I do the same every year, and end up getting another one in a different colour! oh the shame, I have no will power!

  19. I think that investing in your dream coat is a brilliant idea, you'll be wearing a lovely duffel like that for years!

  20. I've had a Topshop duffel for 5 years now and I wear it every year! I love it. They have pockets just by your boobs which are very cosy when it gets cold haha. It's a good investment!
