Hi all

I would like your thoughts on these potential purchases.

No 1. Olive green coat. This is a lightweight coat made from tencel. It is lined. I should be able to wear this in late Autumn (if it ever gets cold here), early winter and early spring. I would like to add more olive to my wardrobe.

What do you think of the big shawl collar? I think it looks better IRL than in the model photo. I have no idea why they spread it out like that. I like it but, in terms of longevity, would it be better to go more classic? I took this home because it was half price and I thought that they might run out, but I can easily take it back.

No 2. Wrap top. This sold out straight away at my local Witchery store, so I had to order it online. Wrap tops don’t always work for me because I have a smallish chest and long neck. Also, the shoulders look more puffy on me than on the model. I generally avoid puffy shoulders because I am broad shouldered already. Still, I have absolutely nothing like this and it’s so pretty. I would like to take my style a little more romantic this winter.

No 3. Dark floral asymmetrical skirt. I would really like a dark floral asymmetrical skirt for Autumn/Winter. This is a wrap skirt with tie waist.

Although labelled “winter floral”, it is a medium weight viscose/silk blend. Not that heavy but that’s not a problem in my climate. I could wear this now, which is attractive.

My main issue is the pattern. I like the colours a lot but I generally prefer a larger scale floral. Too girlie for me? Hold out for better? I haven’t bought this yet.

Last pic is of WIW today. 28 here today but we are expecting a cooler day tomorrow.

Thanks in advance
