The coat has arrived, it is more purple than pink and I don't know if it shrunk in the wash, or it is my new desk job, but there is NO chance that I can do it up (and it is M & S size 8 which is usually quite generous).
And this is the ebay jacket with the collar removed and some bits that I picked up at the sample sale (on again next Thursday 6th March at the Music Rooms on South Molton Lane from 10am until 10pm)
Day Birger Mikkelsen silk dress, £30 was £325
