i'm so glad you have a one track mind like me..

I saw something on twitter this morning which inspired me to do a bit of a look back upon my blog posts, so I started looking back to see when I'd last worn today's skirt on here. Almost 3yrs ago, it would seem. I'm not sure it was a good idea to start looking back, though, as all it's done is made me remember how much I hate my posts from early days.

skirt: new look (via ebay)
necklace: miss selfridge
top, heels: new look
cardigan: h&m
Anyway, here's the skirt.I'm really not a fan of the shape of this cardigan anymore but I couldn't find anything else in my rush this morning which would go with the rest of the colours. If anyone's interested in the gold cardi, I'll probably put it into the blog sale page soon. Along with lots of other things I haven't quite had time to photograph yet. I seem to be in declutter mode at the moment. I think it's all the thoughts I've been having about moving.

These shoes. I hope they last forever, I really do. They're just the perfect height, shape and heel for my liking. Perhaps those folks at New Look could just make more of them, in other colours? Kthx.

At lunchtime today I popped into a pretty little furniture shop which sells all kinds of painted goodies. I've had a writing bureau sitting in my hallway for goodness knows how long, since being given it via freecycle shortly after I moved in. I've only ever got as far as sanding and whitewashing it, but I really want to finish it, and today's little outing kind of inspired me to look for some stencils and think up some designs. Ideas welcome..


  1. aw you never used to capitalise your posts, just like me! i really feel like i probably should, what do you think?!

    this looks really pretty as usual, your wardrobe is so amazing xxx

  2. Aaaaaah, look at young Char with straight hair! Why do you hate them- you look really nice then as you do today! By the way, I second Laura- I want those mittens!

  3. It is weird going through old posts isn't it? When I look at early things I've made I shudder, but it's all a learning curve isn't it? I've been tempted to delete older posts but I think it's a good thing to look back and see how far we have all come x
