Winter Wardrobe Essentials

Trinny and Susannah in their book The Survival Guide: A woman’s Secret Weapon For Getting Through The Year say that June is the time to think about being happy, healthy & wise and what better way to do that than to buy yourself the perfect winter coat as a treat. Keep yourself toasty warm when you venture outside this winter.
