My oldest friend Liz (not last night's dinner party hostess), had the day off work today and needed to purchase a few essentials from town. Inevitably the lure of the local second-hand and charity shops proved too much and we came back without any of the items on the list.
The proprietor of a rather cool second-hand emporium had put this fabulous coat on one side for me. Not only vintage but Indian-made vintage at that and also a perfect fit. Not bad for £7.
The Pogul Weaving Mill in Sholapur, Maharastra has sadly long since shut down.
I do love a hood.
Dressing-up for dinner last night was much appreciated. We ate vegetarian antipasti followed by a wild mushroom risotto and garlic bread....yum, yum!
If the weather stays as chilly as it has been today I'll be needing this coat for The Big Chill.
