Changing weather!

Its been foggy and grey for the past couple of days. The dampness you get with fog makes it feel colder than it really is. Apparently our temperatures are higher than average for this time of the year. To this end I find I'm still wearing lighter weight jackets when I go out or gilets. In the photo above I'm wearing a gilet found in a charity shop, a tunic found in a charity shop, scarf from charity shop, leggings from Sainsbury's TU range and red boots from an on line retailer. My red earrings are also a 50% off Sainsbury's find! My bag was found in a charity shop. I think it's very 50s but it's from St. Lucia and I have no idea how old it is.

Talking of red boots - when I went to the food bank this morning, where I volunteer in the warehouse, 3 out of 5 women volunteers were wearing red boots! Coincidence or what? Or do women of a certain age have a penchant for red boots? I know if I could afford to I'd buy the same red boots in a range of colours - I love desert boots, so comfortable....

I nearly forgot the bag.......


  1. Welcome to the wonderful world of blogging! You look fantastic and that bag certainly looks 1950s to me.
    When the weather is so dank and gloomy I think we all need a seriously colour injection or we're in danger of being camouflaged.
    Red boots are cool, yours definitely are!

    1. Thank you for your kind words, which are very much appreciated, Vix. I love your vintage fashion and you always look fantastic. If you are ever near my area I will most definitely check 'Kinky Melon' out. I love 1930s and 1940s clothes but have never managed to find any in the charity shops - I live in hope though!


Miss, the dog ate my homework...

Hello! Well, here we are again . Where does the time go?  And before I forget, if any of you (UK) followers out there want to see Rain's...
