Helene Berman Classic Pea Coat From Gray And Osbourn Review...



A few weeks ago I was asked by Gray & Osbourn if I would like to review something from their Autumn/Winter collection. I was happy to be sent a sneak preview email of what will be arriving in their on-line boutique next season. The collection looks great and this lovely Helene Berman classic pea coat caught my eye straight away. 

Every Autumn I like to treat myself to a new coat, something that is going to last the distance. Being worn each day throughout the Winter. It has to be good quality, a great style and a colour that will go with almost everything. I love this Navy coat, I think the colour is very versatile and goes with my outfits that I will wear this Autumn and Winter.

I pictured this coat looking very stylish with fitted jeans and long boots. Perfect for looking casual and stylish for the school run and days out shopping. Also great for wearing over dresses for nights out. I was right, it does look great with everything.

What I think about the Classic Pea Coat

I really like this coat, Navy is strongly becoming my new favourite Autumn colour. The coat feels so stylish and very high quality. 

I am a size 10 and was advised that this style can be slightly slim in fit, and I was recommended to go a size bigger. I would say not to go a size bigger and choose your true size in this coat. This size 12 feels so big, definitely a full bodied 12. I am sure the size 10 would have been a perfect fit? (not sure if you can tell from the picture with the buttoned up front? but it sticks out at the back). 

 No worries though, it will come in handy for the winter when lots of jumpers are required. As it is too big I prefer it open for a classy look.

Keds Autumn/Fall 13 Review...

I was super excited to be asked if I would like to review a pair of Keds new arrival autumn 13 canvas shoes. I am a huge fan of the comfy canvas shoes, as you can dress them up with  dresses and skirts or wear them casual with jeans and shorts. I have taken a look through the fall 13 collection and it is amazing, lots of star, strips, sequins, bright colours and cosmic ones too.



Aww you may have guessed how much I love these shoes and I think these Americana-inspired sneaks are just perfect style for Autumn/Winter. How cute will these look with my skinny navy blue jeans and chunky red scarf?

As the collection are just arriving at the Keds website, I was not expecting them to arrive till September. You can imagine what a nice surprise it was when they arrived!! and the squeal!!






About the new Keds

These Champion Patriotic printed canvas upper shoes come in 2 colours, blue with white stars and red around the stars and white with blue star and red around the stars. They are a Keds website exclusive. They have 4 eyelet lace up, 2 pair of laces, one off white colour thin laces and thick navy laces for you to dress them how you like. Soft breathable lining with a cushioned insole an a flexible, textured rubber outer sole. Trimmed with a brown finishing touch and the iconic keds label on the tongue, back, side and sole.

Cost £40.00

About Keds in their own works

In 1916, Keds created the original trainer-or as they like to say, the first ever "feel-like-everyday's-a-Saturday" shoe. But that was a bit of a mouthful... so instead they called it the Champion. With silent rubber soles (superb for sneaking up!), and a featherweight feel, the Champion more than lived up to its playfully confident name. On legends and icons, it danced through the decades to become a true-blue American go-to.

Here is my outfit I have wore with them so far...





The question will be not what will I be wearing them with, But what wont I be wearing them with!!

 They are great for shopping, sneaking out for a drink to the pub with the hubby and perfect for looking smart on the school run. 

How would you style the Keds?

About this review- I was sent a pair of the new Autumn collection Keds for the purpose of this review. I was not paid for this post and all opinions are my own honest view
