As 2015 draws to a close, it is very windy and wet but still mild here in the UK. Walks in the countryside do not seem very inviting so I will take the opportunity to stay indoors and post on a few more charity shop finds which did not make it to a post earlier in the year.
First a purchase which didn't quite work out so well as I would have liked. Turquoise is one of my favourite colours and I am immediately drawn to any turquoise item on a rail. I was so pleased to spot this pencil skirt in my size, priced at £3.00 that I bought it without examining it too closely. When I tried it on at home, I discovered that it was shorter than I would have liked being above the knee and there was a noticeable flaw in the rear! The skirt has been donated back to the shop with a note about the flaw as they can still obtain some money for rags.
It is rare for me to find a pair of trousers that I like in a charity shop which actually fit properly. I must have an unusual waste/hip/inside leg ratio! Also the majority of items on the trouser rail are jeans and you know my feelings on those! However I did spot these back in September and surprisingly they were a perfect fit! They have a bootleg style and are not too tight. If I wear them in public I always wear a tunic or jacket with them for modesty reasons. The trousers cost £4.50 and appear to be almost new. They are also suitable for work. The mild weather has meant that I have not needed to wear trousers extensively this winter so far, although they are also useful in strong winds!
