Miss Selfridge Red Bow Coat ♥

This blog post is basically all photos, not much content. But look at my beautiful new coat! I don’t have much else to say about it except I love it! It’s not the warmest of coats (it’s thinner than I was expecting), and it certainly wasn’t one of my usual bargains, but I’m still thrilled to bits with it. It’s a gorgeous bright shade of pillar box red (not the dark shade as shown on the website), and I feel like Little Red Riding Hood (without the hood).

Obviously the main appeal of this to me was the bows.. I love quirky features on a coat, and this one has two cute little bows on the pockets, and also nice big red buttons down the front. It’s also a really nice shape, flaring out at the bottom, and it is flattering as it’s single breasted and has a normal collar. Also, it has an uber-cute polka dot lining! It feels a little bit big on me, but hopefully with some thick jumpers on underneath it should pad it out a little.

I bought it from Miss Selfridge, somewhere I very rarely shop, and it was a whooping (IMO) £79. I used a student discount code to get 10% off and it was free delivery, so not too bad overall I guess. I hope I get lots of use out of it.. I’m sure I will.. tonight is freezing!

    Aww that coat looks so cute and cozy! I love red coats, you stand out a mile in them and if they have a hood, you can look like Little Red Riding Hood. 😛 I have two red coats, ones a duffle and ones a cape. I love them both! 😀

    Lovely coat, but i definitely find that Miss Selfridge coats are not thick enough to justify the price!

    To be fair I paid 50quid for a miss Selfridge duffle coat in 2001 and it lasted about 6 years.

    I seem to have developed an obsession for coats this year, and while I'm trying to restrain myself from buying more this colour is lovely! x

    I love this coat, I've seen it one a few blogs now and the bows are really cute. I can't really justify it as I have a very similar one from Primark which I don't wear enough as it is.

    That is an insanely cute coat, I'd totally wear it. Gutted it doesn't sound very warm though.
