Diane's plus size fashion blog - June 2015

June 27th. A size 18 Hooded Waxed Jacket from the SS15 Celtic & Co. Collection.

Have I been unwell again some of you have kindly asked ? ( the implied question being "or why has nothing been added to the blog for a month" ? )
Thankfully I'm keeping very well :- it's just been an extremely busy time of year. With teenage daughters taking A level & GCSE exams, and with the finish of my own lecturing year at the college and my students' project marking and finishing I just haven't had a moment of spare time to make videos. But with school and college finished I should have much more time. This week I'm looking at a jacket from Celtic & Co.

Celtic & Co are a British company based in Cornwall. Famous for their handmade sheepskin boots and slippers, they also however retail clothing, footwear and accessories specially chosen to compliment a complete look. I particularly like their Spring Summer 2015 Collection as I feel their items offer a "smart-casual, lazy Sunday, quality relaxation time" look and feel.

Over the next few days as I get back into the swing of things, I am going to bring you my selection of clothing that I think are must haves from their Collection. I'd like to point out that, where possible, Celtic & Co source their products from within the British Isles

Celtic & Co Cotton Hooded Wax Jacket
Waxed Cotton Hooded Jacket - 160 - Available to size UK18

This smart casual hooded coat is perfect for the country girl about town look. This coat/jacket is truly multi-seasonal wear, bringing you through from the often wet British summer weather right up to Autumn and Winter storms. It is 26 inches in length from shoulder to hemline making it long enough to fully cover your back, yet it's not a heavy weight coat for wearing on warmer summer days.

As a guide, I am 5' 9" tall and I am wearing size UK18 which is a perfect and very comfortable fit.

The coat has a checked fleece lining and a detachable hood. In the photo above I am wearing the coat with Celtic & Co purchases I made a while back - a leather cross body bag (from 2012) and a linen scarf (from 2014). I have been a customer of theirs for a number of years and one of many reasons why I keep coming back is that they also sell wonderful accessories which compliment their main lines of clothes.

Celtic & Co are a retailer of quality clothes offering exceptional customer service. I have always found that they consider very carefully the total product mix and how the items they offer for sale will match in with existing, and new proposed, product lines. The scarf and bag that I am wearing in the photo are perfect examples of just such forward thinking.
