The Outfit: Winter at Somerset House

Vintage gold chain

So on Thursday, as a Christmas treat, my sister took me to Somerset House to see the Valentino Exhibition. It's open till early March so I suggest that anyone living in London or visiting London, visit it as it's amazing! You walk on a runway whilst the dresses are placed where the guests would usually sit. You see many dresses worn by people throughout the years, plus dresses which have never been worn and were made purely because he wanted to make it. Let's face it, the man is a genius.

If you're in England right now, you'll understand how cold it is (plus its going to be hitting the minuses next week) so a winter coat is a must. I've been looking for the perfect coat for a few weeks now because all of the ones I liked cost a ridiculous amount of money and were very thin material and clearly was not going to keep me warm. That was until I found this piece in Pull & Bear, a shop I rarely venture into. I saw it, looked at it and thought 'yeah I like it', walked out of the shop and immediately went back into buy it as I couldn't let it go. Grey goes with any colours so I don't need to worry about it when I'm wearing different outfits. The collar is a fake sheepskin fur which I just want to stroke it constantly because it's so soft!

The boots are also another addition to my wardrobe. I did buy the Topshop version of these boots but I had to return them twice (yes, it happened twice!!) because the sole started to come off in the wet weather so I was not happy. So I saw these in the Oxford Circus Flagship store and swapped them. Definitely more hard wearing than the Topshop versions. 

I was being dangerous wearing a dress in the cold weather but I think it works best with these boots. What do you think, would you wear dresses in winter?
