Further to my last post, I did have some success with purchases on my day out with my friend Lisa in Broadmead and Cabot Circus, Bristol. I stocked up with lingerie and deoderants - I never have such a choice in my local town and I bought this dress.
My regular blogging friends will know that I enjoy regular visits to local charity shops and frequently find bargains on their rails. However every now and then it is good to have a change and visit some large department stores with a friend and see what they have on offer. I could not resist this floral patterned dress in Debenhams. You will not be surprised to know that it at a reduced price - 25% off - and it cost me £19.99. It was a slightly unusual design with clusters of large flowers on a green and black background.
As it is now getting slightly chilly to wear a dress outside without some protection, I have added a jacket which I bought a few weeks ago in a charity shop for £8. It was nearly new and, although difficult to see in the picture, the material is a fine corduroy and it should be hardwearing.
