I'm fussy with coats. This year, everything in the shops seems to be double breasted, and I loathe double breasted coats as they don't flatter my shape at all. There are some shops that are better than others for me-friendly coats, but I was actually surprised to see two that I liked in Topshop. I marched to my local store with the intention of buying this black hooded coat, but as soon as I tried on this military inspired green coat, it was love. It's not what I'd usually go for at all, but I'm a sucker for green with red hair (even fake red, like mine!).
I got my poppy from The Poppy Shop because every year I either completely miss my chance to buy them or I buy them and they fall off my coat instantly and get trampled. This more permanent option is perfect, and all proceeds still go to the Armed Forces. If I wear it again next year though, I'll have to make sure I still donate, of course!
Finally, I tried to do one of those shots where you put the camera on delay and run as fast as you can, but my camera only has a 2 second delay and I did not get very far.
