Tried It On: Very Heritage

Hey leggy lovelies,

Please forgive me for being a bit quiet on the blogging front this week.

But I’ve been working hard on a very exciting new development for All the Tall things. More will be revealed very soon… and I promise it will be worth the wait!

I thought I’d put an end to my mini hiatus with a Tried It On feature.

Fearne Cotton Cape Coat, £50

Here is an ever-so-over-exposed-it-could-almost-be-one-of-those-fancypants-histogram-photos-but-it’s-not picture of me in my checked cape from Fearne Cotton’s range for Very. The heritage trend is still strong for winter… and this little number puts a modern spin on traditional checks and plaids. I’ve featured a few capes on ATTT; they look great on us tall girls because we can carry the extra volume without looking like we’re wearing a tent. And if you manage to get the length right in the body (this one’s nice and long), then you can just pair it with one of your long-length jumpers to keep you toasty.

I shall be sporting this little number when I head to Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park for some mulled cider and (slightly early but what the hell) Christmas cheer next week. (Though this time I’ll be wearing a cross-body bag… I made the mistake of wearing it on a country walk the other day and couldn’t get my bag on my shoulder. Holding it in the crook of your arm like the queen mother might look chic… but not when the nearest country pub is an hour’s walk away. Massive fail).

LOTS more posting next week!

Tonnes of love,

L xxx

  1. Looking lovely! But I have also always wondered where does one put the handbag in cape-situations. Those queen mother looks are only nice when you have designated bag-holders in case your arm gets tired. Not to mention with a baby in the picture there are really never enough arms to go around… :S Ah, the inconvenient fashion, I miss you so!

  2. You’ll need it, we already have snow in MI!
