The Thrift Shops have been so good to me lately...
This freshly purchased vintage leather bag is coming home.
I have posted about how I have been lusting after the Mulberry Amberley bag.
The Oxblood leather is sumptuous
the details are simple
classic and stylish.
I have been slow...
hesitating to make a move
for several reasons...
there is no store here in Victoria or Vancouver
where I can see and try on it on
the price point is higher than what I usually spend
so I have been re-evaluating
so when I saw this vintage bag
which is made with embossed leather
about the same size
with a flap and similar interior compartments
I decided to give it a try.
The new Ralph Lauren denim shirt
with my skinny NYDJ jeans
Casual dressing making the rounds at the thrift shops
paired with a silk scarf tied at the neck.
This shirt will get plenty of outings...
I am considering wearing it with:
a boiled wool grey skirt and pearls
black skinny Calvin Klein knit pants
white denim NYDJ jeans
Ralph Lauren pull on denim pants
black leggings and a black Barbour quilted vest
Not sure why I have not had a denim or chambray shirt in my wardrobe for so many years...
I feel like I have been missing out on a major workhorse in ones repertoire!
I also found a lighter blue Tencel shirt with similar features...
am wearing it today with black leggings.
Feeling such gratitude for so many reasons...
friends, family, grandchildren, a roof over our head, our cozy home, the cats, flowers in our garden, the veggies that Mr. HB so lovingly cultivates and grows,
I vow NEVER EVER to take life for granted.
It's a beautiful rainy morning
one of the first Fall days.
Hope you have a fabulous week!
