I have wanted a leopard print coat for literally years (faux fur though of course!). I had never managed to find one that suits my figure and one that I could afford, until a couple of weeks ago... I was browsing around our local Oxfam shop, when I spied this coat on one of the rails. Picking it up, I saw that it was a medium, so far so good. Polyester - great news, no animals have died to make it! £8.99?
Oh. My. Goodness.
Then came the scary bit please, please, please look nice! And luckily - it did! Well, I think so anyway :) Definitely one of my favourite bargains ever. It is all I have been wearing ever since, including today when me and Steve went for a little walk to have some lunch at Salvador Deli (tehe!) and to collect my cheese order for Christmas - cheese is really rather a big deal in the Firmin household! We popped into a couple of charity shops as always, and I got myself another how to make soft toys book from the 1970s. I am really loving the thought of creating my own soft toys, perhaps a project for the new year? I also found a book all about Feminism, which for some reason just jumped out at me, and now I have two weeks off work I may find some time to do some reading!
I hope that you're all feeling festive, and that the snow isn't ruining your plans!
