The following are all new-to-me purchases as I've been raiding the charity shops around London to help boost my much-diminished wardrobe.
Both these dresses have been perfect for when I need to dress up a bit but just don't fancy a pencil skirt. The 1st is a dark grey with a pink check by People Tree. It is 100% fair trade cotton and its shape is beyond flattering- high neckline, elbow length sleeves and a nipped in waist. The 2nd is a silk number from Jigsaw in a subtle monochrome floral print.
I'm enjoying playing with shape and print at the moment and this outfit is an example of that. Striped pencil skirt with a striped lightweight merino wool jumper.
These trousers have featured before as a £1 steal from Ipswich and I'm living in them at the moment as the perfect alternative to jeans. The t-shirt is a wool and silk mix picked up in Tooting for a steal.
This dress was an absolute bargain at £4 as every other dress in the shop was at least £15. It's a silk skater dress and fits a dream. One of the best things about losing weight is being able to find a whole variety of things that fit instead of just settling what you can squeeze into.
I recently moved into my own flat so I can finally decorate how I want. And so I have taken to drawing on the walls...
This rabbit is by the front door.
This pair are above the sofa in the living room (you can see the sofa for size.) It is a copy of Ramon Casas' mural at Els Quatre Gats. Ever since studying it in class two years ago I've wanted it in my house and I'm so pleased with how it turned out.
Hope you're all having a good week and I apologise for my long silence.
