The lovely team at Curvissa saw me enthusing over their red cord jacket, and offered it to me to review! It arrived quickly, and I've had a great week teaming it with colours and outfits, wanting to test it as much as possible for you lovely lot!
If you follow me on twitter, you may have seen me tweet a picture of it:
I have always loved cord jackets. Easy to throw on and rock, without much thought. It used to be my 'look'! My black cord jacket, and blue and black striped scarf saw me through many a night out / wander about Sunderland / Newcastle.
I can't remember when I said goodbye to the trusty coat, but when I saw this coat on the Curvissa facebook page, all those memories came flooding back, and then we add a lovely extra with this jacket:
ELBOW PATCHES!! I love this feature of this jacket, it really makes it stand it for me.
It is on the website as a 'red' blazer, and as I've a bit of a lover affair with black and red, I thought it would fit perfectly into my wardrobe. As you can see the from the photos, it is most definitely a russet red, or even a burnt orange, not a 'red' red by any means!
And then it met my latest 'fashion' interest - challenging me, and my colour palate! The way my office has been lately, I could be sat in my shirt sleeves, melting in the heat, or sat wearing my coat all day - and I wouldn't want my coat to clash with my outfit now would I?!
So away I went, to dig out my Simply Be sleeveless green leaf print dress:
I ordered the 22, and as you can see, the buttons fasten well, and it's always a great help when the material is a good stretch (96% Cotton, 4% Elastane will do that!)
As you can also see in this picture, there are pockets! Good deep pockets! So good, that my phone sits in the bottom of it and I SWEAR I've forgotten it / lost it!!
I love that it is a lined coat, and I can see it seeing me through the dark autumnal days when a winter coat is just a little bit too 'wintery'. Just picture a scarf to snuggle into and mittens. Perfect.
Thank you to Curvisa for this item to review, all the words are my own, and I wasn't paid to review the item favourably.
Much love my lovelies,
