As promised I’m featuring a wonderful yellow coat I bought in a charity shop in Poole (Dorset, UK) which cost all of £5, I mean, when you see it, you’ll be amazed at the quality and, therefore, the price. But first of all, thank you for all the lovely comments on i) the tooth and ii) the makeup. I’m definitely recovering!
Also you’ll note that this week the pics have been taken in different areas. I’m trying out new techniques and lighting for the blog. It’s important I think to always experiment and try new things.
The thing is, this pic below is taken with my phone, but as great as it is for me to not see the blemishes and wrinkles on my skin (!) you can’t really see the detail of the clothes.
Btw, this is a Hobbs skirt, which is a high-end High Street label but all it cost me was £4. The ankle boots are last year’s bargain at £5 (Scope in Seaford, East Sussex) and they’re my go-to footwear for the winter.
The next pic, taken from a different angle, shows you the skirt in more detail plus a great cerise furry scarf.
That’s a charity shop buy at £5. Now add the coat!
That’s it with the buttons undone.
And as we’re just about to have our first cold snap of the winter here’s the coat done up. On top of this I’m sorry to say I’m adding a hat I bought new two days ago. But it was still a good buy at £18.
If you look closely (please don’t) you can see I’m missing a tooth!!!
After watching that Stacey Dooley documentary on the environmental consequences of cotton production I’m quite keen to not buy too much these days, but I saw the hat a few weeks back in a great little Brighton hat shop called Mad Hatters. At the time it was really hot weather and I just couldn’t bring myself to buy it, but a cold blast from the north is fast approaching and I had to have it, especially as it’s just the right colour to go with not just with the yellow coat, but also the cerise scarf.
Here it is in profile.
This hat’s going to be worn again and again!
The necklace (which you can just see) is also from a charity shop and wouldn’t have cost much at all. Always remember I write this blog to encourage others to be bold and embrace your age whilst buying amazing and sometimes colourful clothes at very little cost.
Thank you again for all your great comments. I do like seeing them and replying as well!
With love, Penny, the Frugalfashionshopper
