First of all, I would like to thank all of you for your supportive comments on my first steps in the blogosphere. I’m truly honoured to have been made to feel so welcome!
That said, it’s now back to the business at hand.
Saturdays are for charity shopping! We usually visit 2 or 3 shops on a Saturday and take a picnic. In bad weather conditions, this will be a “car picnic”, but last Saturday we had such gorgeous early spring weather, that we took our trusted picnic basket to the park!
This is what I wore: a long-sleeved A-line crimplene dress with notched collar and buttons down the front. It’s got two generous pockets at waist-height and is from Finnish label “Karelia”. I’ve actually got quite a few “Karelia” dresses in my wardrobe.
As it was still rather chilly, I wore a cardigan, as well as a gorgeous fake-fur collared jacket with a Paris label.
Both the dress and the jacket, as well as the flowery scarf I’m wearing are from Think Twice, a shop which deserves a post of its own.
The cardigan (I admit to having a whole collection of them) is retail, as are the tights, which are from a market stall.
The necklace and brooch (please note the cute little deer) are from Blender Vintage Shop.
Finally, the shoes and beret were both charity shopped. I bought the beret that very day as I left behind my beloved Kangol beret on the bus last week and was looking for a replacement.
As for the charity shopping itself, there was a special event in Belgium’s charity shops on Saturday, drawing huge crowds of vintage lovers. We had quite a haul, which I’ll tell you all about in my next post!
In the meantime, I wanted to show you these little treasures I found while out shopping with my best friend Inez on Friday.
See you soon!
