Talk to me about this mac

Have fallen in love with this

Such a lovely colour which looks good on me.

I'm 35 and not very stylish - well I try to be but in a dull kind of way.

Will it be one of those items that just looks rubbish with everything else I own.

I also fell in love with dress and cardigan in the same colour but am pretty sure if I wore the whole ensemble together I'd look like Camilla Parker Bowles mated with a ribena berry

dress here

Like the mac, like the dress. Not sure I'd do both together. Maybe black skirt/top or dress with the cardi and mac.

I'd like the mac with jeans too.

Thought as much Grin. I have a normal beige mac I could wear with the dress if I needed.

I have quite a few Navy clothes which would veer towards beige rather than purple too.

But yes - will look fab with jeans.

Both together and you'd look like Violet Beauregard.
I like the style of the coat a lot but it really is very purple.

The dress is lovely.

After much soul searching have decided I can afford EITHER the dress/cardi or the coat.

Not both.

You decide.

Its 20% off at Hobbs until sunday, just say you received an email. Or enter SPRING if online.

I would get the coat every time. Fab colour and timeless so it'll look good for years.

Definitely the mac- love it. Hobbs macs/coats are really fab and look beautiful for ever IMO if looked after.

Coat duly ordered online with discount Wink

thank you all.

Will keep an eye out for dress in sale later in the year!
