100 things again?

 Just lately I feel as though I'm drowning in stuff again. Everywhere I look is piles of stuff it's taking endless room and time and energy. So I'm going to try the 100 things challenge to get things in a better order.
 And to start off I'm going to ask you about coats. I have three at the moment, that's definitely 2 to many. I wear a different one every few days and I've always left my keys or something essential in the one before. I just need help deciding.
 Coat 1; I picked this up in a charity shop not to long ago for about £3. It is the smallest of the three and doesn't have to much room for wearing a jumper etc underneath. The pockets are  nice a big which is a big plus, but it doesn't have a hood which is a negative. I quite like my figure in it though!

Coat 2; Bigger and heavier than coat 1. The fastenings needs to be looked at because it has a tendency to gape open when your wearing it but I'm sure I can do something about it somehow. This coat has a hood attached, but the collar will not stay down no matter what I try. The collar and fastenings annoy me, but the hood and extra room is good.


Coat 3; The biggest of the lot, I wore this the most at the end of my pregnancy with Baby D. It's very very roomy and comfy. It also has a hood but without the sticky up collar. I like the colour and the length, and if I kept it I would be tempted to jazz it up a little bit with some embroidery or something. I worry that it looks huge on me though even in the picture. 

So lovely readers, which do you think I should keep or the three? I just can't decide so I will base my decision on your comments and suggestions.

  1. I think the bottom one is the best, plenty of roomfor layering up and it has a hood.

  2. I can't decide and you look lovely in all of them xxx

  3. I like you in one and three - being totally honest here - but if I had to choose, I'd go for number three. From the colour on you and also the way you describe it, it seems to be the most versatile. FMx

  4. Coat 1 is quite flattering on you, but I have a coat which I can't wear a jumper underneath, so I know it's not the most practical. If it were me, I'd get rid of no 2 and keep the other two. Or if you really really want to only keep one, perhaps no 3 is the best. It's a lovely colour, and I think it suits better than no 2, while still having room to wear heavier clothes under it.

  5. p.s. I forgot what I was going to say originally, as I got distracted by coats! I am not a hoarder myself, but I did the 100 things once, and it's a great way to focus on bits and pieces and get rid of things which are hanging about for no real reason, isn't it. And it's a fun way to declutter. Apparently, I last did this in March 2008 - five years ago - perhaps it's time to do it again!

  6. I'd keep the 3rd - practical and it suits you (I like the lighter colour on you) and I can just imagine the magic you could do with some yarn and a needle

  7. I would keep #3. It washard decision between 1 and 3. 3 is roomer but I always get black coats to go with more. My final decision is 3.
