Outfit Post: Chewbacca

How many trends can I get into one outfit, seriously?! Leather, fake fur and shearling. Slightly overkill I know, but I never have done things by halves. This coat is my new favourite thing, it's so so warm and cosy. Part of me can't wait for it to be winter so that I can legitimately wear it without looking like a mental. Not that that is stopping me at the moment.

These leather shorts are extremely comfy and pretty much thrill me as they're a size 12! For all you skinny minnies out there, that probably doesn't sound like a big deal. But I can't remember the last time I was a size 12. It must have been when I was about 14. Terrifying.

Another reason I love this coat? It makes me feel like either Chewbacca or one of the Wild Things. Both are equally enjoyable. I may even team it with my ridiculous furry boots once winter rolls around. Probably not though, don't worry.

I bought these shoes when New Look were having a 20% off promotion, which made them really rather cheap. I love them. A lot. However, they're ridiculously high and, because the heels are so thin, not the easiest things to walk in. That, coupled with the fact that it was too warm to wear the fake fur coat, meant that I changed a couple of elements of my outfit before heading off to the shops...

I bought this coat about eight months ago but have never worn it. Partly because it has three quarter length sleeves and I'm never sure what to wear underneath it. Partly because it didn't really fit me when I bought it. But I love it and can see me getting loads of wear out of it now the cold weather is coming. It's lined beautifully and has lots of nice little touches, like the frilled sleeves and the bow! THE BOW!

How old are they? I bet they don't make them anymore :(


I task you with finding me a pair similar. I'm not a fashionista or shopper - you are! Find me boots! Win-win
