I said "rarely" didn't I, but old habits die hard and sometimes things catch my eye and I indulge the inner material girl. It keeps her happy and she leaves me in peace then! These have crept over the threshold in the last few months and mighty pleased I am with my little treats too!
This French Connection skirt caught my eye on the sale rail of a CS I was walking past. Reduced to £2 its vibrant print is very me. It has been the only item of summer clothing I have bought except for a white tshirt to replace one I'd spilt coffee down. I've worn it several times.
Books...my Achille's heel. Apart from the folk lore one the others will be passed on once I've read them.
And yes beyond bright colours, glorious mixes of fabrics and prints knitwear is my thing. I definitely don't need any more but that's never stopped me yet. This is my birthday present to me from me. If it's cool enough on the day I shall wear it then.
