Pimp My Coat

Ah, Easter: the four-day weekend, the huge pile of spherical / elliptical chocolate and (this year anyways) back to British Summer Time. LOVE. IT. LOTS.

Since Good Friday I've mainly been chilling the heck out at home and, on my rare ventures outside, wearing the amazing furry fabulousness that is my new 70's pimp coat. Seriously, give me a purple floppy hat and a cane and I'll be all set. No hos though, Jo. No no no.

I love everything about this coat. The fake fur is so soft, the collars are so wide, the colour is so beautiful... my only letdown is the extra long length (on me) of the sleeves. I lose my hands in them! Since these photos were taken I have consequently started folding the sleeves up inside themselves to allow me room to maneouvre, so all is happy again.

No hands!
Amazingly wide collar!

I managed to persuade Matt to take a detour on our way to brunch on Friday, so we stopped off in the park to get a different background for my outfit photos. On the way we passed this impressively huge American-style monster truck and just had to get pictorial evidence. Talk about pimping a ride!

I added Censor Chick myself. Obvs.
My Outfit:
Denim Shirt (old): H&M
Palm Print Top (similar), Creepers & Rings: Primark
