Decided I need a new coat. Happily my birthday is extremely close to Christmas so can ask for one!
I’ve finally reconciled the fact that I’ll never be sleek or glamorous and am giving into my teenage hippy/quirky/scruffy routes. So I need a cosy coat that’s a bit quirky but doesn’t look like I’m desperately trying to be 15 again.
I’ve googled a lot of ‘Nepal coat’ type things and have come up with a lot of (quite warm looking to be fair) hoody type things. So I guess that’s kind of the vibe I’m looking for but maybe a bit more...coat like? But not too stylish or it’ll look ridiculous with my uniform of jeans and jumper. But not just a glorified sweatshirt as I bloody hate being cold. Helpfully vague for you all!
Joe browns a massive disappointment. Wicked Dragon had some possibilities but not sure of quality, and just want to see what else is out there. Budget no more than (absolute maximum) £100
I’m loving this thread! Thanks for all the recommendations. I used to loved all the hippy stuff on Nomads a Clothing, but they’ve gone floral in the past few years, which just isn’t me at all. Different buyers, I guess.
Oooh some more suggestions! Awesome thanks! eBay a good idea but my gran (it’s her who’ll be buying) might be a bit suspicious of unknown scary website. She might not mind just giving me the cash though....
