I’ve mentioned a couple of times how much I love my winter coat (or, to be more accurate, my cape), and I promised a picture. It’s not a great one, as I had to employ the use of a mirror in order to take this selfie, but I adore this thing.
I bought my cape the winter I graduated when I wanted a smart, comfortable, but more fashionable coat which was suitable for work. It felt expensive at the time (I think it was about £75, which isn’t a lot of money, given that it’s now seeing a fifth winter!), but it’s one of the best clothing purchases I’ve ever made. I’ve cared for it lovingly, had the buttons sewn back on more times than I can count, and relish ripping off the dry cleaning cover at the start of each winter.
