garden creature;

although the sales for me have not really been accessible (i need to hold onto my money...) i have splashed out anyway. kind of.
there was the lipsy dress, and then this coat I got from New Look the other day.
Yeah, okay, New Look. Greaaaat. Tacky crappy clothes. But this coat is actually really nice!

kinda a war-time pixie vibe...

the background image is the lining. a really nice touch...

i've also bought several things second hand;

A pocket watch from spitalfields market- i also got a load of old clock parts and faces.
A vintage leather boxy bag- should be useful for going out, seeing as i can't be trusted with something without a strap...
The Just So Stories were a gift from my best friend- actually my favourite present. It's so beautiful. And 107 years old!

An old Enid Blighton book (with awesome illustrations) and another old book with a beautiful cover.


I also managed to find a lovely skirt in H&M which I hope to get photos of soon. I'm off to stay with friends for a few days so hopefully will return with many pictures!

Oh I love the pattern of the lining, it's like a little secret when things have nice linings, like coats or shoes. I also love all the old books.
