Colour Block Coat

If you follow me on the gram of Insta then you’ll recognise this uh-mazing colour block coat (see sizing info below).  ‘Is it Celine?’ I hear you ask, no no no, c’mon guys this is me we’re talking about here and if there’s one thing I’m a pro at, it’s finding designer dupes.  Would you believe me if I told you this coat cost just under £32?  Well you better believe it because it’s 100% factually accurate!

Sadly the coat was sat in my wardrobe for about 4 weeks, it arrived right at the end of November but I just put it in my wardrobe and as with many things it was rapidly consumed by it’s surroundings.  It finally re-surfaced over Christmas when I was rampantly searching for a Christmas jumper to take to my parents house and I swiftly slung it on my new-in rail, making it ‘high priority’ for blogging in the new year.  It had it’s first outing on New Years Eve and I had a feeling you guys would totally dig it so I popped a quick snap on my Insta and *boom* you guys freakin loved it!

I’ve styled it pretty much the same (as on my Insta) in today’s post but I’ve swapped my Saint Laurent boots for these patent (Dior style) ankle boots with perspex heels, which come in different colour ways and now are also available in an OTK version too.

Sizing info
Coat – I’m wearing a size Large, these Asian sites always come up very small so I would always recommend to size up by 1 or 2 sizes.
Boots – Pretty true to size, I’m in between sizes so I sized up.

    Normally love your posts, but dont like this at all. Too “busy” with the block coat, blue jeans, patent boots with perspex heel and then the studded Givenchy. Too much. Think black jeans may have toned this down and as the standout should be the coat.

      I love your honesty Vicki! I love the look myself but you’ll be pleased to hear that I did wear this coat the other day with black jeans, a black jumper, and a simple pair of black ankle boots but as I’d already worn that I decided to post it this way 🙂 x

    What is the sizing like in the coat please?

    • 6th January 2016 / 10:47 am

      I have a size Large, these asian sites always come up small with their sizing so I would always recommend to size up 🙂 x

    Dunno what Vicki is talking about, this look is hot! It’s not too busy at all, it’s very slick and those boots and bag make it really stand out! Love your style Emma, in my eyes you can do no wrong xxxx

    Coat looks great on you. Personally, I find the Asian sites with the super cheap clothing to be sketchy af as well as a hassle and a half so I don’t do it.

      I hear so many people say negative things about them but I’ve only ever one problem over the last 3 years of ordering from all of them and that was a customs issue which to be fair was nothing to do with the brand. But I guess all it takes is one negative experience to put you off, I’m sorry to hear you’ve had one 🙁

      haha thanks Maggie, for the price I have to totally agree with you! x

    I love this coat I just purchased it! I buy from shein regularly the only downside is the shipping which isn’t the quickest…end up forgetting you’ve ordered & getting a nice surpirze when the courier turns up lol. I also have similar boots from zara. love this look. beautiful as always 🙂
