I love my local Action Cancer shop. They have a pretty quick stock turnover, and I’ve seen Dolce & Gabbana blazers rubbing shoulders with hand knitted cardigans. People tend to criticise small villages, but they can be something of a fashion melting pot, especially if they are reasonably touristy.
I played it reasonably safe, but I was pretty chuffed to find this red Next dipped hem skirt, for £2.50, and this soft, fine knit Oasis jumper for £1
I wore it (I’m not going to say “teamed it” cos I will sound a bit silly) with my brown cord La Redoute jacket, a charity shop find from last Autumn. My mum got me the Vittorio bag for my last birthday. Tights are from H&M, ankle boots…Can’t remember. International, possibly?
Apparently you aren’t meant to mix brown and black, but oh look, I just did. Bite me.
So this was the outfit for a big city run up to Ikea, for a new mat. It’s sage green pile. Told you I had no taste
A girl has to look good for an Ikea trip though. Some of those yummy mummies herding kids into Smaland look like they’ve just stepped off some Swedish catwalk.
Anyway. Thoughts and opinions on black and brown mixing are welcome. Convince me it’s not OK
