Peruvian Dishes In Dark Tones

Christmas has arrived. Even though Christmas shops have been open since August, lights around London have been lit since a month ago and Winter Wonderland is well into the spirit, for me it only starts to feel like Christmas at the start of December, everything before then is too early. This past week, I even received my Christmas present. (I know super early, but done for various reasons!)

Check out this fur lined, fur hooded, luxurious, ultra rich, warm and perfect parka coat.

From the one and only, Ducie.

Her new collection is a series of parkas, among her classic fur trim jackets and gilets, fur collars and silk clothing, these babies have become very popular right from her launch and don’t seem to be going anywhere. A timeless, wardrobe staple.

The best thing about her parka coats is that you can design your own. Whatever colour you like, the parkas come in green, navy, black and grey with whatever colour lining you desire. Ducie provides you the opportunity to create your own parka with any colour or length you would like. Check out her Instagram page and her new website. (Launces at the end of the week.)

My style is very classic and stylish; ‘Italian’ as Ducie describes it. So I choose the long black parka with blue fur lining and fur hood. Navy with black was never considered a colour combination that was popular in the past, how things have changed! The neutral colour combo is the epitomy of classic, classy chic. I normally wear all black anyway, so the pop of blue on the hood and inside the jacket really looks great.

A day later, Sheerluxe posted this on their website, confirming how on trend this colour combination is. Perfect.

A new coat needed an outing straight away right? I wore it with all black and suede grey heels (which are also popular right now, adding elegance to a monotone outfit) and grabbed my friend Paula and went to Coya.

A Perivian restaurant in Mayfair, one needs to book in advance for a table there as it gets packed very quickly. Coya brings the spirit of Latin America to the heart of London.

The menu is traditional, with a contemporary twist to suit London clientele. We were new to the restaurant so asked our friendly waiter to firstly recommend cocktails and then some food all served with the intention to share.

The Pisco bar also has a range of different tequilas and a Latin American vibe, making you feel part of the culture. An ideal location for drinks with friends, a Christmas party with work or a date night!

Since receiving the parka coat, I’ve worn it non stop. On a rare sunny day like today, the bright blue fur really looked luxurious in the light. Coya is definitely a restaurant I’ll be returning to soon! Look through my Instagram to get more ideas of where to eat out in London. Have a good weekend!
