Here's my budget-busting 1930s corded cotton velvet coat from last week's chazza shop trip.

Who'd have thought we'd still be wearing coats in the middle of May?
I didn't think I needed another vintage coat to add to the already bursting-at-the-seams cloakroom aka the cupboard of doom but I've worn it twice since I bought it and so I'm going to link up to Lakota's Ta-Dah Tuesday as a thrifty find I've been after for ages but didn't realise it.
Despite the occasional burst of sunshine (which seems to have bleached the bejesus out of today's photos) it's unseasonably cold and there's been a dusting of snow here this morning.

Still, I'm prepared to put up and shut up about the weather just as long as it's hot and sunny by June 8th for our first festival of the year (or possibly the last weekend in May if we've saved up enough cash to go and see Hawkwind by then).

I haven't worn this dress in two years & had forgotten about it, it was a nice surprise unearthing it from the back of the wardrobe and falling for it all over again. Who needs to leave the house when you can shop your own wardrobe?
Have a happy Tuesday and see you soon.
