Oversized Coat / Rain Room - London












I never thought that I would go for an oversized coat because I didn't think that it would suit my petite frame. Oversized coats can make you look arty and fashion-forward or just frumpy. However as I am willing to try most of the styles I ordered this coat from ASOS and after some thinking decided to keep it. I love its cosiness, fabric and deep pockets, and the fact that I can throw it on over just about everything due to its loose fit.

As for the last pictures of this post – my friend and I went to see the Rain Room at the Barbican centre. In the Rain room you can experience what it's like to control the rain and put your trust in their work. You walk in the room where it rains, wherever you walk it stops but millimetres from you the rain still comes down! I love the concept. However the queuing is madness as it literally takes hours. Although I have to say that I’m glad I’ve seen it!


Have any of you been to this or a similar exhibit and what did you think?

  30. I had the same thought about oversized coats, being petite I was sure I would just look frumpy or like I was playing dress-up in mummy's closet... but then I tried one on and everything changed :) I love this one on you, particularly with the pretty blue and neon layers poking out from underneath. Can't believe your Paris trip is coming up so soon, miss - can't wait to finally get to see your beautiful face in person!

  32. Tev ļoti piestāv. Es domāju, ka viss ir garumā, ja būtu garāks, tad iespējams, ka apēstu. Veikalā neuzdrošinājos pieiet kam līdzīgam ar lielu kārdinājumu pagāju garām, neticēju, ka varētu piestāvēt, bet nākameiz pieiešu ;)
