Keep toasty with a Down Gilet!

There has been a load of discussion about bloggers blagging for things recently.   I can assure you that this was not my intention…..However, last week when putting on my trusty body warmer, which is the equivalent of the Peanut’s character Linus’ Blanket to me as I don’t go anywhere without it on, I tore it under the arm.  I jokingly asked on twitter if someone could mend it for me….

And to my surprise the lovely people at Charlotte and Co saw my tweet and generously offered to send me a new one in return for a review.  I jumped at the chance.  After having a quick look what was on offer I decided against the one with Rabbit fur, this may have to do with being a former vegetarian for 20+ years, even though the trim is only an animal bi-product.

After having a chat with Charlotte I decided to go for the Black Down Gilet (retails £95) one size up that I normally wear to accommodate for wearing over a jumper.  It arrived promptly in a gorgeous satin bag with a draw string.  It fits like a glove and the quality is superb. I haven’t had a chance to take a photo yet so you’ll just have to trust me on this one!

Thanks again to Charlotte and Co for the very kind offer.  Now, I wonder if I can blag a tumble dryer???  I am kidding!

Update:  I’ve just learned there is a 50% off sale tomorrow and Thursday on their Winter Stock.  The discount code is
