Coats to winter are what a pair of thongs are to summer – non-negotiable.
For Chrissie Swan, and many other Aussie women, a decent coat that fits well has proven hard to find.
My fella took me on a quick date today… To my happy place (with mozzarella) aka La Latteria in Carlton @thatsamorecheese My expression will indicate that it was, of course, a terrible choice and he doesn’t know me at all. (And before you all ask I got my ‘Jacket Of Wonder And Possibility’ on eBay from America because apparently chubsters like me don’t want to wear the same jackets as everyone else here in Australia ????)
Why? Because some Aussie retailers don’t cater to anyone above a size 14.
On a day date to her cheese-filled happy place with her partner, Swan pointed out this winter style dilemma.
“Before you all ask I got my ‘Jacket of Wonder and Possibility’ on eBay from America because apparently chubsters like me don’t want to wear the same jackets as everyone else here in Australia,” she wrote on Instagram.
Judging by the just-past-hip length, the handy hood and cosy black puffy panels, the coat looks truly wondrous indeed. Watch: Paula Joye on how to winterise your wardrobe. Post continues after video.
