Should I have been looking out for summer dresses? That would have been far too optimistic. It’s been mostly about warm woollies, comforting scarves/wraps and winter-weight tunics this week. Jumble sales in Newick and Plumpton, total spend £7.50 plus petrol and a treacle tart from the village shop, and these are my finds.
Top: electric blue hand-knitted mohair cardigan with silver buttons, and a fluffy Next jumper (1980s, judging by the label). Two Dorothy Perkins tunic tops/dresses (bit short. And why am I buying office-suitable clothes just at the time when I’m going fully freelance again? Pyjamas and sloppy T-shirts for rolling out of bed to the laptop would be more suitable).
Some accessories: a kilim-style shoulder bag and little change-purse; straw boater; braces for D. Next picture: token summery items (apologies for dark photo) – H&M cotton skirt, white linen vest, dark grey-blue silk camisole with black beading. Next down: the sensible selection – grey M&S long-sleeved top and useful-looking striped T-shirt, People Tree organic cotton dress (frumpy, it turns out, but might be doable with a good thick belt).
Finally: off-white fake fur, which makes me think of dirty polar bears; one of two embroidered pashmina-type shawls (the other is grey/purple, and has disappeared into the washbasket somewhere).
