In less than two weeks, I’ll be waving goodbye to this dreamy Australian sun and hello to the chills and thrills of Italy! And since my current wardrobe is hardly Euro-winter ready, I’m collecting all the coatspiration I can.
Here’s one of my many secret shames: I LOVE Dawson’s Creek. And every self-respecting DC-er knows that Pacey and Joey were the real stars of the Creek, which is why they got the “happily ever after” ending and Dawson ended up sitting alone in a production office. Sportsgirl are all over it; amongst their luscious new collection of winter offerings is this Pacey Check Coat.
The checks are super on-trend for this season, and it’s the closest any of us’ll get to having Josh Jackson keeping us warm (curse you, Diane Kruger!)
While we’re on the topic of winter coats, I spied this orange (or ‘Tangy Peach’ if you’re hungry) Topshop trench coat in a recent edition of WHO magazine and have been scowling at the computer screen for the past 10 minutes, trying to suss a way to get my hands on one. The hunt was made a hell of a lot easier thanks to Shefinds.com, a fashion blog/buying guide/treasure chest of all things covetable and couture – I’ll be subscribing to their newsletters fo’ sure.
Meanwhile, some other style mavens have beaten me to the punch and that tangerine temptress is all sold out; but I do quite enjoy these other two offerings, both at fairly reasonable prices.
Winter arrives at Unknown Pleasures

Now I’m off: it’s time for bevvies with the boy, then the Attitude magazine launch with the ever-delightful Ms Lana G. Who says winter is dull?
