Recent purchases (coat, top, shoes and a bag!)

I just thought I'd show you a couple of things that I've been buying clothes-wise recently:
I've wanted a fur collar coat since last winter but by the time I caught on, a lot of the nice ones were sold out so I kept looking this year and spotted this one.  There's quite a lot going on with this coat given the faux leather sleeves, faux fur collar and tweed but I actually love it - because it hits about 5 trends in one I can wear it with something really boring and still feel like I've made an effort.  It's toasty warm too, especially with the fur.  As it's a boyfriend fit I went down a size as I felt it was a bit baggy, it's still not fitted though.  It's also available at ASOS so if you've got a NUS card then you can get 10% off River Island stuff there.

I resisted the slipper trend for so long.  I don't know why as I'm usually always down for clothes that are as close to pyjamas as possible (hi, harem pants!) but I just didn't think they'd be very me.  That changed when I saw these, I dismissed them outright, then found I couldn't stop thinking about them over the weekend so rushed to Topshop on my lunch to get them.
I actually went into Topshop looking for this bag, and came out with the one above instead.  It's actually really sturdy and pretty big so I can fit my purse, massive phone and make up in there.  It has a little zip pocket inside too.  The outside zips are fake but I love the little key detail - I think if I ever get bored of these, you could easily replace with some other charm too. 

I already had this in grey but it's ridiculously comfortable, reasonably priced and so flattering on.  I know it's quite plain but it can easily be dressed up or down if need be.  I've worn it for work, out and about and I think it'd work well on a night out too.  I bought the tall version as sometimes tops are a bit short on me and on a peplum that isn't a good look.

All my purchases are mainly black aren't they?  Just shows, we're getting into winter....
