To Paddington!


I just adored Paddington Bear when I was a little girl, so when I found this coat at Camden Market I knew it just had to be mine.
The sleeves are a little bit short (I suspect it might have been made for a child!) but I don't mind that so much because I can wear pretty cuffs underneath.
It's rather foggy here today so I think a little bit of bright red will do just fine.
Coat: Camden Market, London
Sweater: Camden Market, London
Shirt: Vintage Lady Pelaco
Denim: Faberge from Retro Star
Shoes: Lion in Love, Flinders Lane
Pearls: Primark

o0o0o0o! You know my mother pretty much wore the same thing today? Excpt with wide legged jeans and black mary jeans??! If you guys bumped into each other there would have most likely being a "she's wearing what I'm wearing" moment. Oh wow, my mother just got 50% cooler.

Looking great LM, you're erasing my dislike for 'horn/tooth buttons'! Maybe I'll steal her jacket some day.

I was obsessed with Padington Bear when I was a child too - I have a GIANT Padington Bear toy at my parents house with a blue felt coat.

You look splendid in Red Lady M; and I really like that you have teamed the coat with the dark denim.

Can't beat a red jacket for winter to brighten up the dull days.
