Here’s that fabulous vintage faux fur coat with matching hat I bought at the Brighton Vintage Fair last summer. Btw, there’s another Vintage Fair (at the Corn Exchange, Brighton) on Sunday 15 February.

I wore the coat and hat last Friday, not for any special occasion you understand, but just to visit a friend, who is, of course, special!

Underneath the coat I’m wearing the skirt I bought in the Emmaus charity shop in Stockholm for around £10, worn with an old M&S top bought new over 10 years ago.

Shoes, btw, are the old Peacocks boots bought for £25 and now into their 4th winter, and all jewellery pieces are charity shop finds, including the watch.

That’s all for now, but if you’ve come across this post by chance, welcome and hello!  I’m a frugal fashion shopper.  And if you’ve enjoyed reading this, why not sign up for regular posts, by filling in your email address on the side-bar.

      Yes, I’d been searching for a leopard skin (faux) fur coat for a long time and pounced when I found it at the Brighton Vintage Fair!

    I love hats and have decided to get them out of the wardrobe and wear them more often – even the ones that are a bit special. And actually in Brighton I won’t look all that strange!

    And thanks so much for your comment about my style which I think has evolved since I retired. Because when you work you wear work clothes and then for me it was jeans to relax in and wear when not at work. It was when I realised I’d worn nothing but jeans for 2-3 years after retirement I thought hang on a minute!!! And now I know I suit those slightly puffy retro skirts I pounce when I see them in a charity shop! I’m still a bit wary of vintage shops as the prices can be eye watering and seriously you can find ‘vintage’ items in charity shops quite easily. Vintage clothes can also be found at Urban Outfitters and their prices are still cheaper than some vintage outlets!

    Lots of love to you x
