Burberry Coat / Rag & Bone Knit / Tony Bianco Boots / Coach Wristlet

I have been eyeing the Burberry wool duffle coat since last winter. I went to Chastone and they told me it was sold out Australia wide in my size (UK4/US2) and the colour (camel) I wanted. The good news is that it is a classic design so they are re-cut every season. So I patiently waited for this winter. While in New York, I went to the Burberry boutique in Soho, luckily they were able to transfer one in from another boutique across America. I started wearing this coat the day I bought it!

It is the perfect casual coat for winter. I already have a black Burberry coat for work so I opted for a lighter colour. I wear so many dark colours in winter, so this coat definitely brightens up my outfits. The best thing about this coat is that it keeps me very warm. In fact, while I was in New York on some days while walking around sightseeing I was getting really hot wearing it! Usually I would need to wear chunky knits underneath my coats to keep warm but with this coat I only require a thin knit.

  1. I’ve been saving up for a proper winter coat, the duffle is gorgeous, I’m also eying a wool trench in grey. Is it significantly cheaper to buy it in NY, Mel? I need a shopping trip so badly!!

    • Hi Estee! The duffle coat was a couple of hundred dollars cheaper in NY which is quite decent savings. Any overseas trip coming up?
      I actually bought my black Burberry wool trench at Chaddy and have been wearing it every since! I love it so much! Send me a photo of the one you want to get! Mel xx

  2. Hi! I found you in Chicisimo and I absolutely love your style!! I also have a fashion blog with many readers from all over the world and I would like to upload at least one picture of each country that reads me, one of them is Australia, of course! So I was wondering If I could use your pictures there 🙂 Here is the link in case you wanna check it. I hope you say yes as many girls have done already. Would be really cool!

    • Hi Dharia! Thanks for your kind comments. Your blog is lovely! I would be happy for you to use my photo on your blog. Mel xx

  3. Hi there, I’m fairly petite and find it hard to find a fitting coat. Did you find that this size fit you well? I’m normally a size 4 in Australia but even then the sizes run a bit big here. Out of curiosity how tall are you? I’m asian as well and you seem like the same build as me but it’s difficult to tell in a photo! The coat looks amazing on you as well!!
