As The World Faces Up To The Election Results, All Anyone Wants To Know Is: Where’s Carrie’s Coat From?

Clearly, it's one of the pressing issues of the day.

The election results are in and the world is coming to terms with the fact that the Tories won with a landslide victory. Whatever your thoughts, however you voted, the only certainty in these tricky times seems to be Carrie Symonds' reliance on the Great British high street. That's right – in breaking political news, we can officially bring word that Symonds wore an M&S coat to enter Downing Street this morning.

But wait: there's more. Her skirt is courtesy of Anthropologie. Both items are less than £100, too, meaning that the wardrobe of our own 'First Lady' will still be accessible even after another round of cuts. Is that not a comforting thought?

'The boots!' I hear you cry. 'What about the boots?!' Prepare yourselves. They, too, are from M&S. They are an even more Age of Austerity-friendly £45, and are still in stock. As is the coat, for that matter, which will set you back £69. I wonder what that could buy the NHS?

So, there you have it. One high street wardrobe and the promise of a new government – and all in the same day! Are you overwhelmed? I feel overwhelmed. I may need to lie down.
