I’m back blogging after a bit of a hiatus, nothing was wrong, other than lazy-ass-itis.
As the summer is here and everyone wants new clothes, I thought I’d share my recent charity shop finds. Firstly I got this lovely teal Monsoon jacket: I love the colour, gathered shoulders and binding on it. I also picked up the little silk scarf on another outing and realised they went really well together.
Next up, I was walking past one of the charity shops close to my office and noticed them putting this dress in the window. I tried it on, it’s a bit roomy around the shoulders, but as it’s sleeveless (and I have the ugliest arms known to womankind) I would be wearing it with a cardi or jacket anyway. It’s definitely a
bit lot more patterned than I would normally go for, but maybe I’m feeling a bit bold this year. Lastly, I picked up the green leather jacket. The leather is butter-soft and has a lovely vintage feel to it, even though it looks like it has barely been worn.
I’m really pleased with my finds and, to make space for my new purchases, I filled a bag of stuff I’ve not worn in a while and made Stu drop it into a charity shop before I could grab anything out of it. For someone who doesn’t have much of an attachment to things, I’m incredibly sentimental about clothes, maybe because I remember events by what I was wearing. It’s something I’m working on though…
