I have fallen in love with a coat on Monsoon website. Sorry cant do links but if some nice person would care to take a look its the Lyndsey velvet coat.
It comes in 3 colours-black,grey and berry. I love the berry but dont think it would suit my colouring-blonde and pale?. Think the black may be a touch goth looking? so my best bet might be the grey?
Please dont tell me its horrible<I wont care> or that its impractical<I already know>

If it helps any, I am looking at grey in a "goes with everything" kind of way of late.

I agree with you - definitely the grey. I actually think the black and the berry look quite dated but the grey doesnt for some reason. Hope you enjoy wearing it.

Thanks for the fast replies. Ok grey it is-I love autumn/winter clothes-rich fabrics which hide a multitude of sins<sings la la la la in her deluded land>

Ok I found it, I dont think the berry is a blonde colour, I think it might drain you.

If it was a bright red then yes because you could do red lips and look fab. But it's a brunette colour IMHO.

Black can be a bit draining, I have a grey tweed coat from karen millen that always gets admired and it goes with everything. Grey can look very classy too. You could wear it with silver/white gold jewellery.

Could it be scotch gaurded?

Lovely coat. Go for the grey as it's a nice dark grey.

Lovely coat, definitely go for the grey.

It is very similar to one they did 15 years ago in a dark green. (One sister had it for another sister's wedding.) It lasted years - may even still be going except she has changed shape rather a lot in the last decade and a half.

I love grey. So versatile and flattering, I find.

The grey, forshure. Suits blondes too. smile

Ooh, are you back from maternity leave Olivia ? If so, nice to have you back smile
