Feeling Festive in Red

Feeling Festive in Red - OOTD CropLet me start this post by saying red is definitely not a colour that I would consider as being my colour. When I chose this jacket from Shein I was expecting a burgundy coat with cream fur as photographed here. I have to be honest here and admit that when I opened the package I was more than a little disappointed that it didn’t quite match up to the photographs on the internet.

As a lover of neutrals I definitely would not have chosen a red coat! Anyway, pushing this minor issue to the side, I’m actually pleasantly surprised with how well the photographs came out to show that, actually, is a red coat really the worst thing in the world?

Obviously if it was the same price as my Zara one I would have been outraged but it wasn’t, it wasn’t even half, it was a fraction of the price! The sort of price that, who cares if you only wear it once? Feeling Festive in Red - Full OOTD 2 Feeling Festive in Red - Back   Feeling Festive in Red Portrait Feeling Festive in Red - OOTD Crop 1To be honest, looking at these photo’s I’m thinking I look good, and yes, I will be wearing it again! So it’s not what I was expecting, hey ho, build a bridge and get over it! It’s super warm and cosy and it’s also pretty perfect for this time of year! I mean, what colour is more festive than red?

For this look I decided to keep it pretty simple, with such a loud coat I thought I better play down the rest of the outfit and let the coat do the talking! Feeling Festive in Red - Full OOTD Feeling Festive in Red - OOTD Crop 2 Feeling Festive in Red - Portrait 2What do you think to my red coat? Is it making you’re eyes hurt or are you thinking like me, it’s pretty festive and when did a little red coat ever do any harm?

    i think its beautiful and you really suit it. I would be pretty mad that it didn’t look much like the picture. Although for most people they couldn’t afford to spend money on something they would only wear once. well i couldn’t anyway…

      I totally agree! I don’t think I would buy something to only wear once either !
