She lives right next to Gunwharf, a retail outlet centre. It is a ritual that when we go to see her, she and I hit the shops while Hubby sits in her flat and enjoys the view of the ferries coming and going and has a crafty smoke on her little balcony. Then we all meet up for lunch. What a life!
As you can see, the dress is fresh out of the bag, not yet pressed. The colours are so cool and pretty and it will be perfect for our trip to Rome for a wedding in August.
The best was yet to come. We scoured the shops for a co-ordinating cardigan for cool evenings to no avail. The White Stuff had one but it did not really suit me. I kept saying I thought I had something at home - and I did. Here it is - a cashmere cardigan from Hobbs, purchased about three years ago. I nearly listed it in ebay before Christmas as it has had so little wear. Hooray. A new lease of life for my cardigan and a completed outfit.
Shopaholic? Me? Yes. The girl can't help herself.
