White Fur Coat

 This little outfit with the white fur coat (not real fur)  is what I wore on Wednesday when I saw my absolute favourite band, Brand New, for the second time in a week. I saw them in Manchester last week and I saw them at the O2 in Birmingham on Wednesday and it was just incredible. I was up in the balcony so I got to see everything and I was just so mesmerised and happy to be there, and just massively appreciative of the band – I’m all gushy about them now! I’ve loved them for almost a decade now and I pretty much listen to them exclusively (note the majority of my post titles…!) I’m absolutely terrified they’re going to announce that they’re over at the end of this tour (tonight I think) because they didn’t play any new songs and they haven’t had a new album for three years. I think I’ve seen them 6/7 times now, they are just incredible live. I think I’ve typed too much about this…

On to the primary (and only) focus of this blog, my outfit. This gorgeous dress is by one of the many brands at MeeMee.com. I was introduced to this website by El (click for her tumblr which has some of her incredible styling on!) and it wasn’t long before I’d put in an order. They stock loads of different brands, tonnes which I’d never heard of before, and are soon going to have Mink Pink on there (an absolute favourite of mine), they just started stocking Finders Keepers and I really love this playsuit by Motel. Do not go on this website if you’re poor like me! Anyway, I really love the shape of this dress, and because of the fully lace top half you can wear it a few different ways and make the dress completely unique. I’ve tried it with a nude bralet and a black bralet (like I’ve worn here) but you could put a strapless bra with it like the team at MeeMee styled it, or I think you could play with some colour like a gorgeous deep purple, plum or crimson bra/bralet (braletbraletbralet) As always, I teamed it with my trusty studded belt – my primark ones I’ve had for years are starting to fall apart so I had to invest in this little number; at £22 it was a lot steeper than my £1 efforts!

I also have a little story about this white fur coat! I saw it on the ‘last chance to buy’ rail around the time a lot of coats had gone in the sale in the Arcadia group; it hadn’t been marked down from £89, but I made out to the assistant that I’d seen it on the website reduced so she’d check the price for me and yay! It was £59! Plus I had a 25% off deal (read; a very kind friend who works there!) so I ended up paying less than half the original price! I love it so much, although I’ve found it quite hard to wear; I feel like I can only wear it with all black, any suggestions?

I’ve become obsessed with 90210, so the rest of my day will entail me finishing off season 4 – I hadn’t ever seen it until a couple of weeks ago; the lovely and beautiful Alix has been enjoying my ‘vintage 90210’ tweets – NICK CANNON IS IN HER HOTEL ROOM?! and OH. MY. GAY. are probably favourites 😉
