Hubby thought it would be hilarious to take this photo of me outside Pound Stretcher and I was feeling too miserable to argue…a little bit of purple for today:
|Coat - Noa Noa|
Scarf - Noa Noa
Grey Marl Trousers - French Connection
Black Ankle Boots - River Island
(all past season)
Side on shot showing my new Fossil handbag from Menarys. It's getting a whole blogpost of its own in the next week as it's so fabulous. Haven't used another bag since I got it 2 weeks ago. Perfect shape, shoulder strap and colour and the leather….buttery soft!
What the camera doesn't show is that just to the right of Pound Stretcher, there's a Cotswold Outdoors shop and I went in there on a research mission. I wanted to try on the Merrell Ellenwood to see how it compares to the Wakefield. Unfortunately, they had neither in stock but I spotted this lovely Jack Wolfskin coat for a bargainous (in Jack Wolfskin terms) £125.
|Jack Wolfskin Iceguard Cot - £125|
I'm wearing the 8 in this picture and it's a bit too neat for me but it did zip up so the sizing is on the generous side. There's wasn't a 10 available for me to try on.
For those of you in Belfast still looking a Merrell Wakefield, the lady in Cotswold told me that there is one in the colour I have, in a size 10, in the Belfast city store for £129. Worth phoning in advance if you're interested - just in case it's sold already!
Ok - off to choir soon despite having no voice. We have a lovely Christmas choir concert on Sunday in Lisburn Cathedral (all welcome - 3pm) so I better get my voice back soon...
