Fredagens pub-outfit. Denne flerfarvede uldkappe fra den fantastiske, farveglade designer Matthew Williamson er et af mine bedre genbrugskup. Den hang i Traid genbrugsbutikken på Westbourne Grove (som i øvrigt er en rigtig udmærket butik) og så lidt slatten og meget, meget fnulret ud. Pris 24.95 pund. Den pris kunne jeg ikke stå for, så den kom med hjem, og så brugte jeg ellers et par timer på at hive et lag fnuller af og vupti, så så den pludselig pæn ud igen. Jeg er vild med farvespillet i uldet, som skifter nuance alt efter lyset.

Indenunder ses min højt-elskede skindkjole, som jeg købte tilbage i sommeren 2007 for 900 kr. Den er blød som en barnenumse og perfekt til de dage, hvor man ikke rigtig ved, hvad man skal tage på.


Friday’s pub outfit. This colourful cape from the very talented British designer Matthew Williamson is a closet favourite and was quite a bargain too. I saw it in the Traid Charity Shop on Westbourne Grove (one of the chain’s best shops). It was hanging on the rail looking rather limp and was covered in lint. But a quick look at the price tag (24.95) convinced me that it had to come home with me. I spent two hours grooming it, gently pulling off all the extra wool fluff and voilà: it looked almost like new again.

Underneath I’m wearing my beloved leather dress from H&M. I paid 100 pounds for it back in 2007 and it has been a great investment as it’s soft as a baby’s bottom and I wear it all the time.
