Yesterday I was out Christmas shopping and running errands around London and to describe the weather as freezing would be an understatement. I have never seen 'steam' or condensation from the weather being so cold. I definitely would have rethought my outfit. This Zara Coat is just for show, it doesn't keep one warm at all, I have to wear several layers under to stay warm and for £125.00 I think it was a shop-a-holic mistake, ya'll know what I am talking about.
I have bought several coats this season, as your coat in my opinion is the statement piece of the winter. In regards to weight and the ability to keep oneself warm, my Zara coat, followed by my Topshop coat seem to be the lightest, and most trendy. The coats that proved keep me very warm are new Mustard COS coat and all my vintage coats. I'll definitely be whipping out my vintage coats this week, as this weather is literally deadly! I can't imagine how homeless people are surviving right now. If I see anyone begging on the road in this weather, I'll definitely be giving them some money, not because it's the Christmas season but because it's the right thing to do. I think we need to learn to more empathetic to other human beings all the time and not only around the holiday seasons.
