Dailywear: Dolly dress and fur

Hi guys,
The weather has turned, and it is cold! Not dig out your gloves and stick a hat on your head cold, but definitely winter coat and boots cold. Luckily this is my favourite time of the year: I love wearing layers, I love wrapping up warm, and I love having the chance to dig out my vast collection of coats! Here's how i'm protecting myself from the elements today:
Dress: River Island, Jacket: Carboot sale find, Boots: TKMaxx, Bag: Joy, Belt: Primark, Necklace: River Island

The outfit would have looked better with either my tan clogs or wedge boots, but I just wanted to be comfortable! I love this jacket, and it was a bargain, as I picked it up on a car boot sale for just £5. Also a bargain was my necklace, which I picked up from the River Island sale for £3 (reduced from £14.99) The dolly dress is a little short, and i'm constantly pulling it down, but I just loved it's little lace collar. Here's a close up of it, and the other details of the outfit:

Underneath the dress I am wearing a thinsulate vest, and on my legs are very thick leggings. My office is pretty icy, so I wish i'd thrown a cardigan in my handbag for extra warmth too. How are you keeping warm today? Any tips on looking stylish and warm, without resorting to the wooly jumpers?

Love, Tor

Oh my gosh sweetie you look amazing! I love that dress, it just has it all; lace collar, lovely print and cut well.
Also Bargainous coat! Plus you'd never think it was that much, I was thinking £60-80. I wish I could find bargains, you're so lucky.
P.S. I know you said it wasn't warm enough for har / scarfs however I must admit I was wearing my mittens today.
