Well the weather outside is frightful...

Actually in London it's okay today and yesterday was beautiful! Still, I can't ignore the fact that it's nearly coat weather and I'm stuck with my boring Dotty P's black coat (good for work, bad for, well, anything else). 

I always find coat buying such a pain- I know what I want and what I like, but inevitably they don't come in my size or they just look terrible. I have the pear shaped problem- if it fits over my bum then it's definitely going to be huge at the top- if it fits everywhere else it flares out over my bum like I'm hiding another person under there. Frankly, I feel anxious about the thought of going out coat shopping!

I just received an email from A-Wear. I like A-Wear a lot, though they only go up to a size 18 and not all of their collection does. However, I popped on for a look and saw a couple of coats which I love love love and just might take a chance on.

1. This little beauty. Look, if I want to walk around pimping it out then I will (see Pat Butcher). Also, it's reduced to £45!

2.  This metallic parka. I have always wanted a parka and never been able to find the right one (also, as I said above, the shape isn't great for me). I love the faux fur and I love the contrasting colours. Also another bargain at £45!

I'm going to give it a go- at least if they don't fit then I can report back! What do you think- parka or Snoop Doggy Dogg?
