I’m not much of an impulse shopper. I like to mull over my purchases, working on the theory that if I go away to think about something and it’s not there when I get back, then it just wasn’t meant to be.
In the case of this black coat from Nicole Farhi’s diffusion line tho, the waiting hasn’t been because I’ve been mulling it over, it’s because I’ve been stalking it on-line, waiting for the sales to kick in. Even though I knew I wanted it, I possess rather a lot of black coats so couldn’t quite justify its purchase at full price. Then today I saw it had finally hit 50% off, with thank goodness the sell outs in every size bar mine.
So, dear reader, I bought it an hour ago.
You may be wondering why I was so certain. It’s because MyWardrobe.com very kindly lent me two coats to wear last London Fashion Week: this black one and this grey Dangerous Liaisons one, which I’m also deciding whether or not to buy right now. The black coat is incredibly lightweight, uncrushable and thrown over anything turns an outfit into something fabulous. It’s going to be perfect for all the travelling I do, perking up my scruffy daytime pieces, and looking great as an evening coat, whilst rolling up into a tiny ball.
Here’s the film I made of my London Fashion Week wardrobe with the two Farhi coats featuring right at the beginning.
