Know the feeling? You've been desperately trawling the charity shops for so long even a 1980s acrylic batwing sweater starts looking attractive. That was me yesterday, seriously losing the will to shop, until I spotted these 1970s suede beauties.
Made in England by Dolcis and priced up at a fabulous £4.99 my heart skipped a beat and my palms broke out in a sweat. Despite them being a size and a half smaller than my usual size they slipped on and zipped up like a dream.
Do you honestly like those? the manager asked in a bemused manner, they've been in the shop for weeks and we all laughed at them when they were donated, we couldn't believe that anyone would want those hideous old things. How I love living in a place where the locals prefer cheap new stuff to cheaper old stuff.

According to yesterday's Guardian knee high boots are back. I didn't know they'd been away, there's always been plenty in my cupboard.
A boot fetish? Me?
Hope you're having a brilliant weekend.
