Ok, there are a few things going on here. Firstly, I’ve been wanting to do an outfit post on this Topshop duffle coat for a few weeks now. It fits like a dream and feels and, I think, looks much better quality than its £89 pricetag; which is why it is probably so popular – last weekend a newspaper fashion journalist friend was wearing the same (and Uggs! more on them in a minute) and out and about I’ve seen loads on other people. (I actually contacted the Topshop press office for sales figures to back up my anecdotal evidence but they don’t give those out I was told.) Next up, this photo, which is a bit of a first on this blog, as it wasn’t taken by me, but my lovely but camera un-friendly husband. I really am quite envious of all those bloggers who have boyfriends/best friends/mothers who are not only willing but a dab hand with the camera. And thirdly, yes I am wearing ugg boots. Not Uggs with a capital branded “U”; these are by Love From Australia (the brand Kate Moss and her daughter Lila Grace were recently papped in) which, I hasten to add, I bought two, maybe three, winters ago. So I’m going to stick my neck out here, I am a big fan of ugg boots and have been ever since I was first able to get my hands on a pair (remember when it was practically impossible to find them in the UK?) nearly a decade ago. They are warm, cosy and comfy and come autumn, if it’s not raining and I’m not going anywhere too special, I will be wearing them. Confession made. I await my fashion ex-communication with a bowed head.
