Still slightly achy from my 10K walk so I am taking a day off walking.
Setting aside several hours on a wet afternoon to leisurely browse at the shelves of the local Value Village is a luxury and one that I enjoy.
I trolled the aisles with an open mind. If I shop with intention in a thrift shop I never find anything much.
The shop was quite quiet and so I have easy access to all the racks. It does take time to look through the assortment of clothing and the size ranges. The tip that Sheila gave me to look at ALL the sizes has proved to be a valuable one. I have discovered many gems that I would have overlooked if I stuck to the racks offering those garments in Medium.
I read the book and now I am warming up to the idea of wearing menswear.
Thinking that an over sized wool sweater might be a safe place to start I browsed through the men's section.
A cozy sweater on a cold and rainy day does have a certain appeal.
Burberry really use the softest yarn.
This sweater is like a warm hug.
$24 is a price that I can afford and the colours go with the basic blacks hanging in my closet at home.
I also found a men's wool scarf
and a book.
Looks like there is a black and grey theme here.
Donna Tartt's first novel.
I've started reading this and her writing style is superb.
I feel as is I have fallen under her spell.
I plan to read her second novel The Little Friend before reading her latest title Goldfinch.
I've opted for pearls today.
All's well here in The Humble Bungalow.
I've got a mug of hot tea and a good book to read.
Perhaps you borrow shirts or sweaters from your boyfriend or husband.
Would you ever buy men's wear?
Hope that your week is going well.
