#OOTD Winter Wear #Giveaway via Verushka Ramsami (Spice Goddess) July 17, 2015 11:16

Durban is finally getting into winter mode and I am loving it. Ever since I can remember, I have always loved winter. There is just something romantic about winter, guess its all those books and movies that created that image in my mind. The thing about winter is that one can dress up and not be uncomfortable going out. When I returned back from London, I brought back with me several pieces from my wardrobe. This included several well cut and unusual jackets.


The jacket featured in this post is one of my favourites. It is from a plus size store in the UK, called Evans. It has a bright pink silk lining. I love the styling of this coat as it is a babydoll design. The colour grey is a perfect addition to any wardrobe. The design found on the fabric is lines in pinks and purples my favourite colour. The design is almost like a cape with a structured collar and only 3 large buttons.


I teamed up a pair of  dark blue stretch pants with the Black Jay Jay top sent to me by Captiv8. The top is long sleeve and is fitted with a V-shaped addition fabric stitched over the fitted top which hides away the tummy area. I loved wearing this top as it covered up my tummy yet gave me a great fit at the same time without the whole sack like look. This top comes in a variety of colours. A casual or smart casual look can be created using accessories.

I used a simple double strand of purple wooden beads to finish off the look and to match my coat. Melissa shoes in blue animal print complimented my pants and added a fun element to my #OOTD. And yes I am mad about animal print so it often features in my wardrobe. To complete my look, I used my cute purple Guess handbag. The bag matched my coat lines and my wooden beads.

I wore this look to the mall. It was comfy and kept me warm. Captiv8 are currently having a fantastic SALE so just pop over to their website to grab some great deals.
