It's like Dickens but with less Victorian melodrama and more mid-range Scandinavian design. So not all that much like Dickens really. As most people suggested on my last coats post, COS is rich in coats. I had a chance to pop in the other day and these two caught my eye. COS has lots of egg/bubble coats with aggressively rounded shoulders at the moment which are all very nice on the hanger or in a lookbook but, unfortunately, make me look almost totally round which is close enough to the truth for me to eagerly avoid them. These two have enough shape while still having enough room for plenty of additional jumpers. Which is good because they are basically glorified cardigans. These are not thick, heavy coats but they are fairly warm and I like to layer and I am persuading myself that you don't actually want/need a very heavy coat in London? The sleeves push up nicely and the lack of collars is a pleasant change from previous coats I have owned - I feel like they might work well with enthusiastic scarf wearing (one of my top hobbies - you don't even want to know how long it took me to track this down - tumblr, y u so unsearchable??). They're slightly different shapes but they have a lot in common. The big question is colour - green or burgundy...? In store I was 50/50 but now I'm erring towards burgundy. I like green but I love burgundy (I like my Sketchers but I love my Prada backpack - n.b. chocolate raisins may be making me a bit manic). But I already own quite a lot of burgundy so would I be able to wear my new coat with my existing clothes? But I probably couldn't wear a green coat with my existing burgundy either...
I don't know I don't know. I'm thinking about going back to buy one of these tomorrow but I'm super indecisive. What do you think? Advise me/make my choices? Please?
P.S. I maybe promise to be less mad in the future.
