My New Winter Coat from Matalan!

My fab new coat grr
I have wanted a (faux) fur leopard print coat for years. Sure I own a leopard print Mac and many many leopard print cardigans but I’ve never found a leopard print coat that suited me.
I also went for a rather understated lipstick (yikes!)
Being on the fat side anything too furry has a tendency to make me look like a womble so rather like the little match girl pressing her nose against the store window I have only ever admired other peoples leopard print coats from afar.
Keeping me warm, at last I have my very own leopard print coat!
All this changed last week my friends when I found the perfect leopard print coat in Matalan. Its soft and yes furry but its sleek more like a big cat than a teddy bear and I feel quite splendid in it.
I feel like a sleek cat rather than a womble

Whenever I’ve tried on fur coats before they always swamped me and in order to get them to do up across my boobies would be huge on my shoulders. Somehow this coat doesn't do that. It fits me perfectly and I'm so glad I took my own advice and tried it on despite suspecting it would be like the hundred other fur coats I have discarded over the years.
The fact that it has rather snazzy turquoise lining is also a bonus. It looks rather swish when you take it off as well. Don't you just love that in a coat!
Loving the lining

I can now Indulge my obsession with leopard print to the full in my glorious tarty bet Lynch inspired coat. Hurrah! Just in time for the cold winter school run.
The coat was £40 and is part of the Be Beau range and I got in in store at Matalan It goes up to a size 18 but I went down two whole sizes so if you are a size 24 try the 18 on would be my advice.

  3. I always find buying a new coat a nightmare. They either make me look like a barrel or don't fit over my larger than average "girls". I found my dream coat too this month so yay for both of us :)
