|jacket: marks and spencer limited collection (via ebay)|
I'm so pleased I managed to track this jacket down recently. I saw it in a magazine feature a couple of years ago, I think. It was from Marks and Spencer's Limited Collection range and obviously was impossible to find once it had been in print! It's been one of those things I've stored in the back of my mind to eBay search for every now and then.
A few weeks back I managed to snap it up and I'm really pleased with it. It's it's first wear so I'm counting it towards Only Once August, but I'm pretty sure I'll wear it loads, given the boucle jackets which seem to be springing up everywhere at the moment.
I tried to sort of match the shoes to the mustardy edging details, although I know they aren't quite the same colour. Do you think that really matters? I went for this ancient H+M brown dress, which is a lovely shape but I managed to spill make-up on on it's very first wear, which didn't come out whatever I tried to shift it. The only reason I haven't got rid of it is because it's one of the only 'plain' dresses I have and I like to keep it for layering, where you won't see the stain.
I seem to have amused a few of you by mentioning that I was going to meet my 'hard work friend'. She's lovely, but a bit full-on; does nobody else have people like that?! I'd not want to stop seeing her, but keep our visits to every now and then. I hope that isn't too horrid of me.
