What Milly Wore: Simply Be Fur Collar Coat

 Hi guys,
I was fortunate enough to be contacted by
and asked to review a product of my choice.
I'd heard of Simply Be, but never tried their products before,
so I was interested to see what they had to offer.
Looking through their website there were lots of items that I liked
and coming from a family of curvy ladies I was pleased to see that their size range was so good
with most items starting at a size 14 and ending at a 32
I chose this gorgeous 'Tweed Coat With Fur Trim'
as I was looking for a new coat for autumn, and this style looked very designer to me.

I ordered a size 14 which I found fit nicely, slightly oversized which I like.
My coat was well packaged and arrived very quickly.

The first thing I noticed about the coat was the gorgeous faux fur collar
it has such a luxurious vintage vibe, and feels super soft.
I also like that the charcoal tweedy fabric has flecks of darker and lighter greys,
so it's great for going with everything but doesn't look boring

It looks lovely undone or done up, and fastens with chunky buttons
It had decent sized pockets which impressed me
as there's nothing I hate more than a faux pocket!

I also love that the collar is removable!
which I had not realised when ordering,
meaning you get two very different looks in one :)

The fur trim / collar can also be worn on its own as a stole,
I think it would look great vintage tea dress.
Fur Collar Coat: Simply Be £95 
Jersey Zip Dress: H&M
Indigo Jeggings: M&S
Grey & Black Tweedy Buckle Boots: Carvela Kurt Geiger
Mexican Skeleton Necklace: Tatty Devine (Sale £25)
Pink 'All About Me' Lipstick: Topshop

Overall I'm super chuffed with my coat
and I'll definitely be recommending Simply Be to my friends and family ;)

Lust after: Dr Martens Heart Shaped Satchel

My first ever blog post back in July 2009 was about heart shaped bags

Well it seems my tastes have not changed that much
as I'm currently obsessed with these heart shaped leather satchel bags
I'm a fan of Dr Martens, and of Agyness Deyn and it's a match made in heaven!

at £140 each they are not cheap
but I really feel like I need one in my life!
I adore the lilac, but I'm not sure it's the most practical colour for every day use
The black would go with everything, but it's a bit boring.
I think I'd probably go for the cherry red, as it isn't too bright
goes with a lot, but is more exciting than black.
Saying that.... I really do like the lilac!

What do you think of these?
Have you seen anything of the rest of the collection?
