Funny to think that, not so very long ago, parts of the UK were covered in snow. It seems that within 2 weeks Spring has decided to surge forth and has told the cold weather to jog on.
And rightly so.
Although being a vocal and avid fan of Winter - I am ready for new life and greenery.
However, during the recent cold snap, I did manage to bag myself a new coat thus:
Thanks to out of town charideeee shops and a sale they were having, this wondrous wool and angora coat with removable faux fur collar cost me a whopping...
Wait for it.....
£2.99. Yep. 299 pence.
It was so cold that day, it made my face actually hurt.
I tried it on, ripped the price tag off and wore it straight out of the shop.
With so much money saved, I treated myself to a lovely hand made felt brooch to brighten it up a bit. I found a great stall at the Market Harborough Vintage fair and nabbed this loveliness from a company called Small Beans.
I have neither the skill nor patience to make such things. I like to *think* I have - but - I ain't.
I adore the fact that the collar of this coat is removable, so that when it is not all that cold, I still have a nice long coat to wear.
As you can see from the amount of chins I am displaying, I tried to nestle into the faux furryness.
And it was goooooooooooood.
