Am loving my new coat!!!

SAM_0852b New coat!!!  Yes, doesn’t take too much to make me excited.  🙂

But I’m absolutely loving it.  You know those faux fur fleece blankies – those incredibly soft ones?  Well – the coat is like that inside!

 

To be honest, I didn’t have a clue what it was gonna be like, as it was ordered online… and when all you got is a pic to go by, it’s always a wee bit of a worry until it arrives.

So, I was dead chuffed when it was absolutely lush.  And the good thing about it, not being from a high street store is that hopefully I won’t be wandering around with it on, and seeing tons of others wearing the same (one year I had a Next coat – I swear half the female population of the UK had the same blooming coat).

 

What’s even better… I won it.  🙂

Well, technically I won credit to the store, but as this is what I picked, it became my prize.

I also got a dress, and a jumper for my credit, so over the moon with my goodies.  🙂

 

Coat is from Sheinside.  Their clothes are CHEAP.  And I mean… really cheap.  Delivery is as expected (I often order from Asia… and generally it takes between 7-10 days.  Quickest I’ve had something arrive is 5 days… and longest is about 2 weeks)… but the “processing time” (what the heck is that supposed to mean?) took what felt like forever before it got sent off… but then again, if you’re not in a hurry, having to wait a couple of weeks before the clothes are shipped off shouldn’t be too much of a problem.

However, I think the clothes has been made for tiny little elven creatures like Kylie Minogue!  I got the coat in Large, but it’s more like a M (this was anticipated, which is why I got large)… and my dress and jumper is “one size” (one size for petite 12 year olds – hahahaha).  I really liked them, so thought I’d chance it, considering it wasn’t costing me anything.  🙂

The jumper fits, and will be used, but it is a size smaller than I would have prefered.  The dress however…  oh my goodness – my derriere is atleast 2 sizes too big for it.  Hahahahaha.

 

And if you fancy trying to win some vouchers yourself, there’s loads of contests over on Polyvore for credit at stores!  And even if you don’t fancy playing virtual dress-up in the hope to win something, it’s loads of fun making other sets too!  Think of it like a very tidy and attractive Pinterest… you pick the items you like, and add them together in a set:

 

Home sets, fashion sets, arts & crafts, beauty, art and impression, hair styles… basically anything you want.  🙂
