Evening guys, hello and welcome to the New Year! January has been a cold one pretty much everywhere, hence why I've been on the look out for more thicker, substantial items to really wrap up warm. Tonight my post is about my latest editions to the winter wardrobe - my retro shearlings. You all should know me by now and know how much I love a shearling jacket! Especially if it's a vintage beauty oozing all that character and that's exactly what I have here! Not only was I lucky enough to find one over the past few months, but two unbelievable, down right sexy jackets! However, now I have a slight problem, I already own one, now I have three in my collection, all shaggy, tan suede, so before my clothes rail collapses under the sheer weight of three bulky shearlings, one must to go!

There's nothing better than wrapping up in a shearling, you get the old rockstar look as well as the comfort & warmth so badly needed this time of year, there really isn't the style over substance approach with a piece like a shearling, they look bloody amazing and serve a purpose all at the same time! They really are the all rounder jacket, a complete win win. We'll talk about the jacket that begrudgingly I'll be putting up for sale and that's this one - I think this one has to go as it's so close to my original shearling I found in London a few years back. Nevertheless this jacket still is down right killer and I'm sad to see it go but it's screaming out to be someone else's go-to winter style and needs some love'in!

It's a slightly longer style suede with two deep flap pockets on the front, it has a huge over exaggerated fur collar waiting to be flipped up, pulled in and worn out on a freezing cold February day. It has a big silver, chunky zip running up its centre with added further metal details like the small clasps on the cuffs. The jacket is fully lined with quilting and fur that runs about two inches into the jacket from the edges of the piece. It's the perfect silhouette with its thick panelling and suede. When you wear this jacket, zip it to the top, nothing will stop you. I'd say its about a small/medium fit.

My other find is this, still tan suede, still fur lined, but this time its a little more cropped, tight fitting and it has a dark, coffee brown curled lining, it's the same but different at the same time. I adore this jacket and its now the one I throw on to take my car out. The cold wind hitting me whilst driving with the top down, but with this stylised flying jacket, it's does just the trick of keeping me warm.

The main thing about this particular jacket which is even different to my London shearling is that it's fully lined, you put your arm into it, and feel that fur, the whole of the body and arms are wrapped in curly, soft fleece lining! Oh baby. I wanted to feature these two jackets for a while now, but with a huge project currently underway (It's top secret) and I think it'll be that way for a good few months yet, I just haven't had the time, but since January has finally come to a close, I had to post a blog, to keep my hand in!

If anyone is interested in taking the jacket DM me on Instagram x

Hope you're all good and have had a great start to the year.
As always I appreciate you reading
