Ye thrifting gods! Last night, I watched the wonderful film on Daphne du Maurier and spent half the time sighing over her masculine and tasteful outfits. Today, on a hunch, I visited the only British charity shop in town, and to my utter bafflement, found a swathe of Harris just waiting to be tailored into a skirt and cape (hope there is enough material)! The ladies there said they came across anything like it in the store before.

Due to being extremely limited in spending on unneccesities, things purchased and inherited yesteryear are finding themselves back on my person. Often you just don't know how to wear something for ages, and then Eureka! your style has changed and it all falls together!
