What did you get in the sales?Maybe you're a smart shopper who ignored the trendy items of the season and just added a few good quality basics to your well-curated wardrobe? Or maybe you got the fabulous winter coat you've been stalking online for months? Or perhaps you found a designer bag at a sizeable discount? Good for you!
And what did I get?A couple of sequinned t-shirts, two evening bags, a belt, a trench coat and a vintage kimono.
Actually, only one of the t-shirts, the trench coat (which I already have in another colour...) and the belt were on sale. The bag made from cork was a souvenir from Madeira, and the other bag was a Christmas present from hubby. And the 1920's hand-embroidered kimono?!?
I blame Downton Abbey. Ever since I saw Lady Mary wearing that fabulous blue kimono I've been fantasising about having something like that. And then I saw this one in a shop window in Islington...
Let's just agree that it was a temporary mental disorder. It happens.
Or maybe there's a part of me that is a bit more eccentric and flamboyant. That's a bit scary...
So, hits or misses?The belt will go brilliantly with the gold loafers I got last summer, a sequinned t-shirt (or two) always brings a little bit of fun to a plain outfit, and the trenchcoat... OK, fine, I have 5 trench coats now, and I'm sure I will wear this one to bits. After all, a trench coat is practically my uniform in spring and autumn. But the vintage kimono... how on earth am I going to wear that???
