It is that time of the year when the weather becomes a bit bipolar - chilly and blustery in the mornings, oddly warm and sunny in the afternoon and back to freezing and windy once the sun goes down...

This usually means that it's time to go shopping for some toasty but chic winter coats to keep you protected from the elements.

I have a fairly large collection of trench coats in different colours fabrics and cuts (I'm a bit obsessed, the
y are just such a beautiful item of clothing, eternally stylish and yet so functional!) but they are mostly made of light cotton or a waterproof material rather than anything substantially thick.

So my goal this year was to find a coat that was different from the rest of the coats in my wardrobe - I wanted it to be made of a thicker fabric and patterned (most of mine are plain colours).
Fortunately for me, I did find a coat that fit my vision of my perfect coat (I'm notoriously picky when I get an idea of what I want) and at a decent price too.

Presenting the 'Fletcher Coat' from Wish in Ash Check

Apologies for the bad photo - I don't have very good lighting in my house and I had to play around on Photoshop to get the details to come out clearer. It's not very easy to see from the photo but the pattern is a nice classic check in grey, white and flecks of black, which will be very easy to integrate into my wardrobe.

Here's a cheaper alternative I found that is fairly similar:
Valleygirl Checked Coat, $69.95

Happy winter coat shopping!


  1. Love that coat! Where did you find it?

  2. I bought it at Myer - it was on sale for 1 day only too (30% off)! It's still in stock too if you're interested =)
