Firstly I apologise for ANOTHER clothes obsessive post. I was going to cover my diet cake (cracked it!), but it was so delicious it was all eaten before I had time for pics).
So instead it is more clothes, I realised as all my purchases arrived, in 'the big spend' that I hadn't really been buying for me, more for the person that I thought I 'should' be, in reality none of the items reflected my taste, but I think subliminally I had bought stuff that I knew I could wear a the gym if all else failed.
This week, I went to the most AMAZING sample sale, there is another one on next week at The Music Rooms just behind Bond Street tube, if anyone is in the area GO FOR IT, everything was £10, £20, £30 and £50, but the brands were Iro, Carven, Phillip Lim, Malene Birger, Theory (brands schwands) it's the quality, all beautifully made, heavy silks and detailing stunning workmanship and the same price as Primark/Top Shop. Whatsmore I found some clothes that are me now (or perhaps the me from a decade ago), not the me that I thought I should be trying to be. Here is the first haul...
Vince shirt £20! Iro matt sequin leggings £10! Scholl shoes £30!
Blondpolka dots who was brave enough to say 'Don't be ridiculous woman, stick to your own style why are you falling for the hype and marketing?' Her words were a lot more gentle, but the point was similar.
Has any one else gone back to work after time off? Can you adapt or is it natural to look back a decade in your wardrobe choice?
If anyone else is keen on a bargain, the Music Rooms on Thursday March 6th, I think it opens at 11 and finishes at 10ish, it is being run by London Boutiques and I have been told there will be lots of bargains to be had!
PS Lovely Jane Hattat, I have emailed my brother and asked him to get in touch.
And Cynthia, when you have your schedule ping me a date for coffee in London (I replied to your previous comment).
