When Ceri challenged us to post an outfit featuring at least one second-hand or ethically produced item it was tough. Like the contents of our house, my wardrobe is predominantly second-hand and I wasn't sure on what to choose.
The decision was made for me when the postman delivered this astoundingly fabulous 1960s Cumbrian-made Mohair maxi from the wonderful Miss Rayne this morning. She spotted it in her local charity shop and kindly thought of me.
It goes perfectly with this 1960s St Michael Courtelle jumper (I know, knitwear, unheard of on me) from the 20p Man at the weekly car boot sale and the £1 suede jerkin bought from another car boot sale a couple of years ago.
The £4.99 green 1970s suede boots from the PDSA charity shop.
These Indian filigree earrings were 99p from Richard House Hospice shop.
Rings (from left) courtesy of Helga, Cancer Research and Krista. Bangles, from top, Oxfam, inherited and from Helga.
The belt (worn as a pendant) and the ring are made from out-of-circulation coins and scrap metal by the Lamani tribeswomen in India. The Accessorize wooden peace symbol bangle was from a car boot sale.
The Mac eye shadow, Sisley blusher, Lancome lipstick & eye liner and 1960s Miner's false eyelashes are all second-hand. I bought the Barry M nail varnish new but as it's cruelty-free it's ethical in it's own right.
The invalid's a lot better today, as my nursing wasn't much use your well-wishes obviously did the trick.
See you soon. x
