Can't do links as I'm on my iPhone but I bought a gorgeous coat from monsoon thus week. It's a dark grey/pewter colour, comes to just above the knee and it's called Ellie, £120. Has a nice big hood although you think from the picture it hasn't got one! They have it in quite a few collies. I am a size 10 and I ordered the medium as I want to wear over layers! smile

I went to the emporium of all things fashion, TK Maxx, this week, and they had a huuuuuge selection of autumn/winter coats of every kind you could imagine. I got a gorgeous grey wool duffle coat with a detachable hood, after moaning beforehand that I could never find any with hoods! Very pleased.

New Look and places of that ilk have all got their winter coats in. Bit jacket-y sone of them, but there's lots of choice.

Yes that's the one! It's just what I have been looking for and the ruffle detail around the edge is very cute! A little warm for now though so will have to wait a while before I can properly wear it gringrin

i had one like that monsoon one from Zara two years ago; they seem to had them every year. It also had a belt which made it for me, as it defines you round the middle a bit more.

Please explain how you did that on iPhone? <uses scary teacher voice>
