Love, Actually

Modcloth has me all kinds of swooning lately - the reds, tans & blacks, the sequins and sparkle, the gorgeously feminine cuts & classic silhouettes - I love it all. I realize this all has a bit more of a holiday feel to it, and I'm definitely jumping the gun seeing as it's mid-September, but I can't help it. This stuff makes me giddy.

What makes me particularly giddy is this gorgeous red tiered BB Dakota coat (number one below) - so much so that I couldn't help but make it mine. Meet my new winter coat!! It's on pre-order, so should arrive at my door in 3-4 weeks. SO excited!


My love for red winter coats dates back to the very first time I saw "Love Actually" (which is now my favorite movie of all time, and I've literally watched it at least 20 times) - Natalie looked so, so gorgeous in hers that I had to run out and buy one. I did, but that was years ago & it has since died. For the last couple years I've been wearing basic black, but I still swoon every time I see a red winter coat. So after deciding I'd never find a prettier red coat in stores, I hit the order button, and can offically call it mine! Now if only I had the shiny black hair, I'd be all set.

  15. OH. MY. GOSH. Hah when I first saw Love Actually (also a fave movie!) I wanted a red coat SO bad because of that scene too! I've since added two more to my collection, and always try to channel Natalie when I wear them (wish I looked that cute in a beret though!). I LOVE the coat you bought, can't wait to see it on! xx
