Dec 12th Half Length Black Leather Sheepskin Coat in Contemporary Design from Celtic & Co.

Half Length black leather sheepskin coat from Celtic & Co

Luxury modern design sheepskin coat in Black Leather - £695 - Available in sizes UK8 - UK18

I'm featuring another wonderful coat this week from Celtic & Co which I think would make a fantastic Christmas Gift for the "Woman who has Everything".  This is a contemporary design sheepskin coat in black leather with full sheepskin lining and detailing.   The half length makes this a very wearable coat especially for day wear occasions.  The asymmetrical front zip design, the wide sheepskin collar & full 'turnback' cuffs, and the full sheepskin lining (with sheepskin inset pockets) delivers a very 21st century and modern design for this very high quality and luxurious coat.

This is very much an easy wear coat.  It is very warm yet is only medium weight.  I love the fact that it is versatile enough for a very casual "top of casual jeans and jumper look" or for a smarter "trousers or dress look".  It is also comfortable to sit in and would be especially easy to wear if driving.  I think this is luxury, but a practical coat that you will pull out of your wardrobe frequently this winter, and for many winters to come.

To see the features of the coat look at this video below

Until next week. Diane


Dec 6th Wonderful Toscana Sheepskin Full Length Hooded Coat in Chocolate Brown

Ultimate luxury and warmth in this coat from Celtic & Co

Toscana Sheepskin Full Length Hooded Coat in Chocolate Brown from Celtic & Co

Full Length Hooded Toscana Sheepskin Coat - £1250 - Available up to size UK18

All that needs to be said is WOW!  This is the ultimate show stopper of a sheepskin coat.  The coat is Toscana Sheepskin which is the warmest sheepskin available on the market and therefore also very suitable for very extreme cold weather (my friends in the US take note.  Celtic & Co sell into and distribute widely across the USA.  Just choose the USA Flag at the top of the page from this LINK. ( The coat is US$ 2065 ).  Celtic also distribute worldwide.

This is the perfect present for the woman who has everything.  The ultimate in luxury, warmth and comfort and all packaged in a stunning chocolate brown full length and hooded coat.  A classic design in a single breasted cut with real shearling inset pockets, a full longer fur lining and a neck trim that beautifully pulls up to a wonderful sumptuous full hood.  This style of coat will not date so is a classic investment piece and heirloom to pass down the generations.

I am 5'9" tall, and I have a 46" hip. I am wearing size UK18. The coat is 52 1/2" long. It is available from size UK8 - UK18 (Up to approx US Size 14/16) although Celtic & Co. have different US/UK sizing comparisons than other retailers I've seen, and call size 18 a US size 12. 

I have deliberately styled my look in the photos above to show you how wonderful the coat looks worn with a skirt and heels.  Of course this coat will also look stunning worn more casually with jeans and boots.  I am also wearing a pair of chocolate brown leather gloves which go perfect with the chocolate brown colour of the sheepskin.
