Cold, wet and currently wildly windy, the festivities are over, the days are short, and despite our best efforts, Christmas was an expensive event and it's a loooong time till pay day. Ebay will be a struggle but I feel I should at least try...
Still, we haven't maxed out completely, we will limp along frugally till February, and I can enjoy what I already have in my wardrobe.
Today's chilly and blustery conditions required faux fur. Of course!
This grey fur was from Ebay, bought for next-to-nothing in the summer. The brooch on my beret is from lovely Lucy, as is the green velvet maxi skirt. I'll never max out on the maxis!
The 1970s dagger collar shirt and grey suede belt were charity shop buys last year.
Truly a big pointy collar. I could have taken off if the wind had got underneath those! The turquoise pendant was a gift from an old friend who has just gone to live in Spain. I miss her and think of her when I wear it.
How many chins? More than one, dammit!
Here's a question for you - what do you reckon to this dress?
You can tell by the slapped-arse face I'm not too sure about it. Any thoughts? If I added a floppy hat, I could be Margo Leadbetter off to Miss Mountshaft's for coffee!
Thank you to everyone who made such thoughtful and supportive comments on my last post. I really appreciate your responses.
