Following on from my last post I have to share news of a new fake fur coat which I scored at my all-time-favourite op shop - the Hospice Shop on Hanover Street.
It was hanging up with other coats and I immediately wanted to snuggle it - sure enough it is lovely and soft. To my amazement it was priced at $5. Surely, it was a mistake, so I asked the lovely lady at the counter to have a look at it for me and see if there were any major flaws (cigarette burns, huge tears etc). Nope. Nothing wrong with it, so I knew it was coat-karma!!

Anyway I have tried to incorporate some changes to my wardrobe this week, and that means tidying it up as well as wearing things I have not worn for a long time. I hadn't worn the vintage Canterbury Knitwear vest for ages and it was close to being considered for the vintage stall that I have not got around to organising (ie too good to be just given away). Here is is:

So to round off I thought I would show you a couple of photos of the new Hospice Shop in Jetty Street which I visited last weekend. It was a glorious sunny day which started out all frosty like icing had been poured over the world. I spent a few hours in a union meeting and when I got out into the fresh air my feet just walked to the Hospice shop for a quick look around. Nothing took my fancy (to buy) but the building on the opposite corner looked awesome so I snapped a shot of that instead.
Hope you are all having a good week, tomorrow is Friday (thank goodness) and I'll be taking part in Frock on Friday.
bye for now,
