Shoes, silk and vintage black

(Apologies for these terrible pictures). Not sure why I thought I needed three pairs of loafers, but these were £1 each from a school jumble sale, and it’s rare to find good shoes in my size. The middle pair of oxblood loafers were slightly too small and wide, however, but the other two (navy/brown and tan/brown with a hint of boat shoe) are very comfy. Have scrubbed them out and will wear them especially to annoy Lucy, who hates boat shoes (and the people who wear them) with a passion.

From a church jumble sale in the deepest, darkest depths of Ashdown Forest: two shirts, gothy black silk with ruffle hem/sleeves and a grey Zara wraparound with wide sash-tie, given to a work colleague, and two rather brilliant vintagey finds for myself (you’ll have to take my word for it, given these pictures). Bracelet-sleeved jacket/coat with patch pockets and huge pearl buttons – I bought this solely for the buttons, and then liked it when I tried it on – and a wool-crepe ’60s-style Jigsaw smock-dress with high neck and discrete frill down the front. Both look terrible on a hanger but the jacket promises to be a very useful spring-summer addition to the wardrobe, and the dress is a classic. And below, three Indian cotton things which I couldn’t resist, but am thinking the better of; the maxi-length dress, at least, may suit a pregnant friend this summer, anyway.
