today i want... asos mongolian fur coat

I've got something of a weakness for a fur coat. That said, I also find them very difficult to get right. Go too high street and they look oh so cheap. Go too vintage and they look oh so tatty. Buying a designer fur is of course my wish, but given that they will set you back in the region of £1k, that's not going to be an option any time soon. For now I'm focusing on my reliable high street friends, of which ASOS is one. The downside of its being an online retailer is that I don't know if this beauty will live up to its picture until I see it in the flesh (so to speak). But I do know that if it is true to life, then it might just be the perfect fur. Off-white; unapologetically huge in an Olsen-twin-wear-with-sunglasses kind of a way; delectably soft and shaggy: it really is perfection. All it needs is a simple black knit and leather trousers and that's it. Good to go. Warm, cosy and yet beautiful: it will solve all possible winter coat conundrums, and look pretty darned good while doing it.

  1. I've been eyeing this coat too, but I can tell you from experience that mongolian fur is tough to get right without seeing it in the flesh first. Last fall I ordered a gorgeous mongolian fur vest from ASOS, but when I got it, it looked and feeled like a clown wig, so I had to return it..
