VERY Red OR Dead - OOTD + New Coat????

Well you've all seen the recent trend of the red/wine/burgundy/oxblood/rust/whatever coloured jeans that have really hit the celeb scene -so obviously made them go to the likes of Cosmo (where I saw them) then finally to the high-street stores where they are available to the likes of you and me...

Well, I saw them ages ago, liked them and well, got a pair!

They've been spotted on the likes of Jessica Biel, Mandy Moore, Naomi Watts, and Millie Mackintosh (Though I can't say I'm a fan enough (or at ALL!) of Made In Chelsea to genuinely notice her in them!) back in early October - and like I said, I liked them and became inspired. So back then I bought some and have just not had the chance or time to pose in them for you all haha...

So here we go...

Top to Bottom:
Black Cardi and Top:
Both Primark (£3-£4 each)
Red Jeans:
Very (Size 10 £12  - Now £25)
Studded Chelsea Boots:
Primark (£15 size 4)
Here's me... Obviously, in my wine/red/rust ect jeans - I've gone for a simply black - as at the time, it was easier than searching my wardrobe for my other matching items .. I did however partner the outfit my my new Chelsea boots and some lovely jewelry (if I must say so myself)... I got my jeans from, Very... But this is after WEEKS of trawling through shops and online to find a pair that suited me and my height - Yes, unlike most of you lucky buggers out there who can walk in any store and pick your size, me with 26" legs, finding jeans is a pain - especially since LOADS of shops have decided to either take away their Petite section or make it only available online - meaning, making my life difficult when it comes to looking for clothes! - Yes, this is one of those awkward 'first world pains moments' but it really is difficult, well that and I really can be a winge!

Well after having a rigmarole with Topshop - Bacially I ordered my size, they sent me the wrong size, then they sent me the wrong length (I may wish I had 32" in legs, but don't patronise me people!!!!) then when I went to finally get my size online, they sold out - no biggy, though, I may feel bitter over them for a while, but their fittings are odd anyhow!

I then moved to other stores - they were in short, too long (ba dum tsh!) and I started looking online - I then remembered Very had a petite section - so I looked at their size guide and in theory I would fit perfectly into their petite size 10's! - I was skeptical  but I ordered a pair (At half price of £12 may I add! as this was before they really hit the scene big!) and my cynical self was proven wrong as the Size 10 petite fitted like a glove... (To view them in regular length click HERE)

My Cream/Oyster face Rolex
 (Loving my mam for getting me it!) 
I like it some much I got an LBD for the season (which was also £10! - I effing love this place!) So I have found a new shop online I truly do adore - plus when the gorgeous and curvaceous Holly Willoughby is a supporter, model ect for where can I really go wrong - especially with those prices - though I do warn you all, those of you who go for these jeans now with have to pay £25 as they've gone up as their popularity has risen!

Like I said, I went for a rather simple red and black look - but I did combined this with my Studded Chelsea Boots from Primark and my favourite Jewellery - My I Love You Pandora, My P.Kennedy at Harrods Heart necklace and my Cream Face Rolex - which really is like a baby to me - My Mammy and Chappy love me - So I picked a love/red theme and went with it!

To draw back to the jeans - I think they're nice and if you're bothered about them making your legs look big or want a pair to suit an apple shape ect them have 'slim' or 'straight' (Click HERE to view them) leg rather than skinny to avoid looking like a inverted triangle (No, I can't help but think about 'Knowing Your Shape' now - it's like second nature to me!)  But these jeans are a lovely colour for the Autumn/Winter seasons (as red + winter = hello santa!) and they're a nice change to regular denim or black... The colour really is seen everywhere at the minute so they're not a bad investment! You can also get them in leather or coated denim - but I stress, if you're going for this, please consider your shape first as we want no repeats of Collette in Grease 2 where she bends over in the shiny pants guys! Also, they really are versatile you can pair them with a pair of boots and hit the shops or uni OR you could pair them with some pointed heels or wedges (as I plan to) and hit the town for a night out! They're just SO versatile...

Dear Santa,
 I would like this,

Now please :-D
As for the "New Coat????" part of my title - I was browsing round Festival Park in Stoke today and went in to Newlook to have a look at the coat I'd really liked on my WISHLIST back in October - but when I tried it on it wasn't the coat for me... But Robert picked out another and I really liked it (He's a babe to shop with!) and I fell in love with it - it's one of those coats with the double print - sort of as it has all black arms and printed body! It's a contrast sleeve coat and prior to trying it on I'd had a scepticism to style as I found it 'not me' - or at least those leather arms on army coats - definitely aren't - or worse - when they have leather on a blazer, it just doesn't seem right (call me old fashioned hehe) - anyway, I digress easy, so I shall carry on...

The coat itself is £54.99 and can be found in store or here online - I loved the fitting also, as though I'm a size 10 - my boobies usually don't allow this when it comes to full-zipped coats and I usually have to compensate for them. But with this the fit was perfect and the shape of the coat slimmed you down, nipped in at the waist with a belt and suited my body shape!

So, now I'm stuck whether to get it or not - if I don't it shall certainly be on my Christmas list to Santa this year - as yes I do write one every year and do sign it with my name and age - which lucky for me I never have to work out the 'something and a half' bit as my Birthday is right at the start of December - so it's whole numbers for me... Sorry, again I do digress easy- I blame ADHD - Even in my writing hehe...

So there you have it, my OOTD, my thoughts on the red/wine/burgundy/oxblood/whatever coloured jeans and have seen my new love-focus of the coat/jacket world... What do you think?

So add a bit of colour to your wardrobe this season - just because the skies are getting black quicker doesn't mean you should always reach for the black on your bottom - be brave - be red! (Or wine/burgundy/oxblood/rust - or whatever you want to call them! -They have too many names!)

What do you think of these coloured jeans for Autumn/Winter?
Have you got any coloured jeans for the season? 
And what do you lovely readers think of this possible-new gorgeous coat?

  8. I love the coat!! I like the bright and dark. I have such problems finding jeans to fit though. Too big on the waist if they fit on the hip. Too low on the waist and I look fat. And too short!! I can't wear Calvin K cos they are too short. Gap are okay but too big on waist. When I do find a pair that work, I tend to buy a couple of them.

    1. Oh Gap is a nightmare - They're clothes don't usually look right on me AT ALL - well except for maybe hoodies - but that goes without saying lol - I just end up trudging round the potteries - then give up measure myself and go online lol xxx
