The Princess Coat

Photobucket
I was not the only one to be tempted by the huge discounts on offer at whimsical label, tba. A label I have always admired, yet for some reason had not yet made a purchase from. This has since changed with the arrival of the navy blue princess coat and I hope to look out for more pieces in the future. I already have a few coats in this style but the smooth felt, velvet collar & pockets and gold button details... as well as the very attractice price... tempted me to invest in another in a different colour to those I already have. My only concern on this coat was the rather snug fit of the size small... perhaps next time I should check out some plus size coats to give a little extra room whilst not forsaking the style.

  20. I love that coat. It's so versatile... warm & cozy, won't show a stain (An unpleasant thought but practical!) and will add a touch of class to whatever you wear it with. It reminds me I need to find myself one of those ;)
