I hope everybody had a FABULOUS Christmas! Here’s an outfit worn a few days before Christmas that I’ve pre-scheduled to post on Boxing Day. (So as I’m writing I haven’t actually had the big day yet – I’m coming to you from Christmas past. Or is it future…?) Are you all too full and sick of the sight of turkey and chocolates like I am no doubt 😉
The excitement of wearing something you bought ages and ages ago but weren’t able to wear straight away (wedding dresses, winter coats bought in the summer sale, etc.) is unbelievable. Before Christmas I posted pictures of me finally wearing my vintage maxi skirt, and today it’s the turn of my vintage Irish wool cape. It was destiny, I tell you: the two of us were meant to be together.
I visited Exeter’s best vintage clothing store during a warm spell over three months ago – the first time in absolutely ages – and saw this beautiful cape with attached scarf for only twenty quid. Twenty quid?!! I did wonder what on earth was wrong with it because why would it still be sitting there in the shop at that price… Turned out it had come in that very morning the lady said, so my little Irish beauty decided to turn up a couple of hours before I got there and just wait patiently for me.
Destiny, I tell you, destiny.
Ring: Unknown (it’s stretchy – perfect for fitting over gloves. I said I was bringing back rings over leather gloves)
