Boden dressing (on the cheap)
The outfit is definitely channeling Boden catalogue c. 1992 (the coat even has a clashing 'loud' lining). Although by all accounts you can't get much louder than that pink, it was a bargain £3 charity shop find (originally Per Una from M & S). And the scarf is from Accessorise, it is old, cheap and polyester, but it is warm enough for outside, and not too heavy to wear around the house. The jeans are cast-offs from my eldest son, and the cardi an el cheapo from Dorothy Perkins via Ebay. I think the whole outfit including shoes would have cost about £12, but I quite like it, it may not be 'fashion forward', but it is warm, cheerful, practical and comfortable.
What do you think? Or does it look like it is all charity shop and cast-offs? Be brutal, I can take it.
