Once upon a time I was a youthful, three-year-old cherub, full of beans with a twinkle in my eye. During this time my older sisters used to dress me up and conjure up rather flattering nicknames for their adoring baby sibling. One of them was Plasti-chub, a hybrid of 'plastic' and 'chubby'. Cute huh?

Plasti-chub was bestowed upon me one damp and dreary day. My mother had bought and stuffed my chubby little body into a yellow, plastic rain mac. I then continued to waddle around, splashing in puddles to my heart's content all whilst answering to the name Plasti-chub. 

I am a fan of nostalgia and dressing in homage to my toddler days now and then and today was one of those days. 

I'm talking about the plastic coat, not the mini skirt or thigh high boots. They were a homage to Pretty Woman. 

Fridays at ASOS are a glorious occasion as more often than not, it's sample sale day. Last Friday, whilst rummaging through the Aladdin's Cave which is the sample sale, I clocked this shiny blue plastic mac. I just had to have it. 

Straight away I experienced a dramatic flashback montage of wellies, puddles and chants of Plasti-chub. For £3 how could I say no?

I would never turn my back on it. Or the way it makes a dreadful, crinkling noise when I move. 

Not only filling me with fond memories, it's also a dreamy baby blue colour (one of my faves) and it will be practical in the battle against the elements. 

Don't hate me but I'm kind of, sort of, maybe urging it to rain just a teeny weeny bit so I can flip my hood. 

This will be my reaction...

But for the time being the sun is gracing us with his presence so these sunglasses, £1, also from the sample sale, will do for now. 

All these childhood memories even have me giving it my best 90's Spice Girls pose.
