Notes: Blazers blazers everywhere, as I said earlier, I almost bought this blue and white striped one cut like the sketch above in a thrift store yesterday, but thankfully realized it was RIDICULOUS and put it back. The danger of thrift stores - sometimes finds are almost amazing and you don't realize they are actually NOT until it is too late. But, as I am slightly broke and not carrying cash, I made the distinction successfully!
It was harder to talk myself out of the full-length aubergine Laura Ashley vintage wool coat with gold silk lining and a fur collar. It would have taken up my ENTIRE suitcase, I probably could not wear it on the plane comfortably, so I shed two tears and put it back. I may go back once more today just to pet it . . .
