Sheepskin Detail Swing Duffle Coat, £150, Topshop
This just looks so so so warm. I've been looking at all the structured coats and capes that have been floating about recently, but this just grabs my attention a little bit more, maybe because to a certain extent its anti everything thats around right now. Its knee length, and seems to have a lovely cocooning effect, and the sheepskin at the top is just the right amount of fur. Lovelyyyy.
Thigh High Cable Knit Socks, £25, Unique at Topshop
A double whammy for Topshop today, but mainly because I couldn't really find what I was looking for elsewhere. I was trying to find something similar to the socks that were all over the RTW Fall 2010 Prada collection (http://www.style.com/fashionshows/complete/F2010RTW-PRADA) and these are the closest/most affordable match. Besides, they do look pretty toasty.
Printed Leggings, £45, Holly Fulton for ASOS
I can't really explain my choice here, other than I love them. With a big, baggy jumper they would be completely lovely, and the fact that they're a bit out there doesn't hurt either. Plus the colours fit with the whole icy/snow winter theme.
Plum Velvet Shift Dress, £45, Miss Selfridge
This dress just evokes Christmas. The colour, the yellowy lace details, the heaviness of the fabric... I read an article in last month's NYLON magazine about velvet, and its huge return back to mainstream fashion and for the record I love it. I imagine that after a few wears it will begin to soak in a whole personality of its own, a quality very few fabrics can do, but very typical of velvet.
Treats by Sleigh Bells, £4.99 Amazon.
Not exactly a winter warmer of a record, but amazing nonetheless, and I'm totally into it right now. Its quite get-up-and-go, and in certain tracks the guitar and vocals clash quite incredibly, but its an invigorating listen that makes you appreciate artists who do something slightly different with their music.
