Alannah Hill, FASHION, Uncategorized PAUL FRANK & ALANNAH HILL 19 July 2007

So for the past 2 weeks or so, we’ve been hit with this weird FREEZING weather. Sydney normally is wonderful – even in winter, it’s still fairly mild and comfortable. But not so recently. It’s been frosty, freezing and all-round awful! Lots of rain, wild winds and just bone-chilling temperatures that we’re all not used to. Everyone’s been complaining and it even makes the news every day – apparently “the coldest it’s been in 20 years” or something like that. Bleh :X Worse yet, I’m allergic to wool – any kind of wool – and I hate looking like a big fat pig so I don’t tend to pile on the layers.. which means I’m always cold 🙁

Welp, I bought a wool Paul Frank coat! Yes, it’s wool, I know.. but it’s lined (with the cuuuuutest rainbow Paul Frank lining!) so it’s alright with my skin. Other wool coats are lined too but they tend to become really bulky – I like how this one isn’t too chunky/fat looking. It’s a very normal dark gray, so I can wear it with anything.. and it has the cutest toggle button thingys! Very fun to fiddle with 😉 The hood also comes in handy when it’s windy or raining. Oh, and did I mention the lining is sooooooooooooo cute!! There was only ONE left in the store and it was in my size, which is already a sign in itself. Then, I discovered it was on sale from almost $300 down to $110. Wheeeeee! Great deal on a lovely wool coat. So now I am toasty and warm walking to/from work 🙂


Paul Frank wool coat

Cute lining!

The sales are too good to resist.. also got an Alannah Hill vest

    Ooh great purchases! I love the lining on the coat, it’s so cute!

    The weather is so weird. It’s so cold over there and they said on the news it was snowing around Melbourne too, but all week (except for today, where it rained and was cold and actually winter-y) it has been really sunny and warm.

    The best thing about winter here, is that EVERYONE looks like a big fat pig! 🙂

      Hahah well i guess there’s no choice! Here it’s normally still pretty mild so you can get away with a tee and a warm jumper/jacket.. hence why I don’t like wearing lots of layers now, just not used to it :X

    i love coats, jackets, sweaters, etc.

    didn’t know PF made a jacket! love the lining, very cute! unfortunately that jacket won’t be warm enough for our harsh Canadian winter :(. How cold is it over there now?

    • beverly posted on July 19, 2007 at 9:54 pm

      Hmm not sure, just a fitted vest I guess.. it goes really well over a thin long-sleeved top! Very warm 🙂

      Yeah I thought PF just made pajamas and cute accessories… heh. It goes down to about 5 degrees here *brrrrr*
