Winter is here for some of us…

and the high streets have cozied up with a fabulous new collection of winter warmer coats*. What is your style and where do you shop?

  1. In the first large picture, the model is wearing a wool mix pale grey coat classic and stylish, with an oversized camel coloured scarf wrapped several times around her neck. In her right hand, she is sporting a rather lovely large camel coloured handbag topped off with indigo skinny jeans.
  2. In the second picture, top of the frame, the model is wearing a black cocoon coat also a wool mix. Under that, she is dressed in a black shirt and black jeans. This look can also be dressed up with a sparkly jewelled scarf in a colour of your choice.
  3. The bottom picture shows a model wearing a classic parka in pale grey with an oversized fur hood for maximum warmth. I love a bit of faux fur trim.

Tell us where you shop and what’s your style of winter coat?

“Often people think because you’re blind you can’t make yourself look good. I love fashion and accessories, I have odd eyes but never wear my prosthetic lens. I love to be different one brown eye one blue grey, I wear my make up and go about my day!” ~Angie Roberts

A year after her heart attack at age 36, Angie was registered as blind. At that time she thought it was the end…and yet here she is, a believer in one should never give up hope no matter how dark you feel.
