Carrying on with my plan to wear everything in my wardrobe, a pea coat is a style of coat that never goes out of fashion. It’s a timeless classic and if you’re thinking of investing in any type of coat, this is one that will last for years – along with a biker style jacket, a leather jacket, a trench coat or a camel coat. Other styles come and go and they are nice to own in an exciting, heart missing a beat kind of way, but as they may only last a few seasons they are probably more of a Zara/Topshop buy.
I had my first pea coat when I was about 23 and wanted to replace it after it had served me very well. This one from Reiss I bought in their post Christmas sale about 4 years ago now and provided that I don’t grow out of it, it should last me for many years to come.
Now I may be a bear of very little brain but it just can’t deal with this picture. It keeps trying to make it into Victoria Beckham. The similarities between her and Catherine ZJ are starting to become a bit spooky and my little brain finds is very confuddling.
Although in fairness I can’t really comment about people coveting other people’s looks because if I had hair that I could cut into this choppy bob, I so would. As it is it would take me forever to grow my short style out and knowing me after a few months I would cut short again so there’s no point in even going there – but somehow I can’t stop thinking about it which is always a bad sign.
