charity shop find


I just found this jacket in a charity shop! I like the shape alot, with a bit of adjustments like putting in some side pockets, I think it will be perfect! It reminds me a bit of Luke Skywalkers outfit!

Check out the sleeves! I might even try and make a jacket with the same pattern. This one is size 14 but I like the loose fit. This year, (from now on I mean) I'm going to see if I can go a whole year without buying any 'new' clothes at all. This way, I help to save the planet and my bank balance at the same time!
I'll let you know if I succumb to temptation!

(by the way, please excuse cheesy self portraits, I can't look at myself in the mirror seriously without cringing).

  3. Hi Artemis - that's a great jacket, I'm quite jealous. I buy a lot of stuff on eBay at the moment. Like you, though, I don't much like looking in the mirror - your pictures are sweet, though. If I photograph myself for my blog I crop my head off!

  6. Love the jacket. Totally see what you mean about Luke's jacket when he was pre-jedi, right? But this is far cuter of course.
