The season is turning - it's still reminiscent of summer but the coming autumn is tangible.
This week I thrifted a couple of outfits' worth of new-old clothes. A red and white checked shirt with pearly poppers, some high-waisted dark denims, a pair of snow-washed drainpipe denims, a mottled khaki top, a boucle wool jacket, and a silk scarf in oranges and browns. Everything goes with everything in this batch.
During the last few thrift rounds I noticed that my attention is turning from bric-a-brac to clothing more and more. I guess it's brought on by the change in the weather. Suddenly I have a long wishlist of items I would really like to find in the thrifts - all clothes and accessories.
I've been hanging on to a fashion page that I ripped out of a french magazine ever since that little trip back in January... I'd love to compile a similar look for the coming winter for myself. I'm hoping to find a nice and thick vintage wool coat, some great oxfords, and some nice tops to layer... I feel not a bad start, for now!
In other news, I'm enjoying my course quite a lot! A great group with nice people and good teachers. I ride my bike to school and and back every day. I decided I will cycle right up until about late October, when the ice starts taking over on the roads.
The restaurant day I mentioned went rather well - we sold most of our food, and got great feedback. It was a fun but very, very busy weekend.
This weekend I will take it totally easy, and quite possibly go and look for some outfit building pieces in my fave flea stores.
What are your plans for the weekend?
