I had the opportunity to do something very cool last week and I thought I would combine it with a review blog post. I received this amazing Claire Richard's oversized fur trim parka from Fashion World that is so warm and cozy and it turned out to be a perfect coat for my day's activities.
I spent the morning at Tower of London planting ceramic poppies in remembrance of WWI (to find out more, visit the link, it's really very neat and moving.)
The poppies are really something else, and an incredible display!
Now on to my new favourite parka! First off, this coat is warm without being heavy which is great for the weird UK Winters. It has a zip closure and is bang on for the fit - I wore my regular size 20 and would have room to wear a sweater without issue. It has a good hood and best of all the end of the sleeve is like a sweatshirt style cuff. You can roll it up which is amazing for when you are just a little too hot or even just need to dig something out of your bag. This coat gets a 10/10 for me and I will be living in it until Spring returns!
