Fabulous winter coats from Forever 21

Wintercoats

Now, this is the kind of thing that just makes me sick. For at least two months now, I’ve been engaged in a fruitless search for a new winter coat. And I don’t ask for much: just something cute and stylish – a little bit of "quirky" would be good too, but I won’t insist on it. The problem is that such a thing doesn’t appear to exist in Great Britain at the moment. No, all we’ve got is a selection of dull old pea coats and trenches (which are stylish, yes, but warm, no) in shades of boring black and grey. Nothing has grabbed my attention at all so far, so it’s ironic that when I do finally find something approximating my PWC (Perfect Winter Coat), I would find it on the website of Forever 21, who don’t ship to the UK.

I love both of the coats above: the red ‘Mallory’ lady coat is totally the wrong colour for me, but I love the "Little Red Riding Hood" look of it, while the taupe ‘Amanda’ coat has seduced me with its big buttons and tight cuffs. The $49.80 price tag suggests these may not be the warmest fabrics around, but I like ’em. It’s just a shame I can’t buy ’em…

    If I had a Forever 21 near me, I would grab one to ship to you! I bought a winter coat there 2 years ago on clearance for $20 or so, and it was warm! In fact, I prefer it over my Tulle yellow wool expensive “warm” coat. Good luck on your coat hunting!

    forever 21 makes all cheap stuff…but it’s ADORABLE and inexpensive….
    can’t you make friends with someone in the US and have it shipped to them and then have them ship it to you…complicated, but its worth the work for all the stores that don’t ship to the UK and vice versa for your friend, right?

    I’m in the US, dear, and wouldn’t mind sending it along to you at all, if you really want one. Just let me know!

    Cadi and Bjam, that’s so kind of you! I think I’m going to try and hold out a little longer and see if I can find something in green, which would be my top choice, but if not, I may well take you up on that 🙂

    I’m more than happy to send a coat on over the pond. Just e-mail me at bjam1402@gmail.com and we can sort something out 🙂
