Not a very exciting post today as these are my comfort clothes, they've been with me for years and whenever I can't be bothered they are the things I always grab from the wardrobe.
The Bayeaux Tapestry print maxi skirt was £5 from the local vintage shop. It's made by "Duke of Bond Street" from Courtauld's Lirelle fabric and is labelled as a "Size 12 to fit a 24in waist", more of a UK size 8 by today's super-sized standards. As soon as I spotted it I was instantly transported back to the 1970's, one of Mum's friends had a trouser suit in the same print which was an endless source of fascination to me as a child.
I packed my skirt along with a vintage maxi dress and a Topshop frock for a six week backpacking trip around South India a few years back. The Topshop dress disintegrated after three weeks but the vintage items stayed with me throughout my trip and are still going strong.
I bought the leather jacket in 1992 on the first charity shopping date I went on with Jon. I was reluctant to spend £7 as it seemed an enormous amount for a second-hand garment back then but I'm so glad I did, eighteen years later both the jacket and my relationship are going strong.
I'm wearing Benefit's Bad Gal eye pencil today and I must say I'm massively underwhelmed. It might not have cool packaging but at least my usual 50rp kohl crayon from a Chennai supermarket stays put.
