Leopard print, and £1 shoes.

I had a rare day off work today, so I went with my dad to the coast to visit my aunt and uncle, who live in Flamborough. I lurrve the seaside, but the East coast is cold at the best of times and today it was freezing. Still grand, though.

My concession to colour today was this leopard print fur coat that I got from Topshop a couple of years ago. I'm not very wild when it comes to colour - unless it's my hair - and my wardrobe consists
almost entirely of black, white, grey and navy blue, so this is pretty out there for me.Coat - Topshop, top - New Look, jeans - Topshop, shoes - Salvation Army
There are not many benefits to having size 9 feet, but buying men's charity shop shoes is certainly one of them - they always seem to be size 9. I got these from the Salvation Army opposite my uni for the total sum of a one pound coin.

Just while we're talking about this coat, I'll mention that I wore it when I went to meet Gordon Ramsay at his book signing in York a while back, and he told me that he loved it. So just FYI Ramsay fans, wear leopard print fur if you ever meet him. He digs it.
I was very blonde back then.


  1. £1 shoes?! blimey, they are brilliant!
    And I love that jacket. :)

  2. I love your coat... and I can't believe those shoes were £1!


  3. Fabulous coat, that is just the sort of thing I am after.

  4. oh wow, i don't think i would ever be able to pull off animal print.

  5. I'm in awe that those shoes were only £1! Thats incredible. Lovely blog :) x
