When I enter my favourite charity shop I scan the room like a magpie, searching for pretty things. With so many rails to rifle through, I often rely on touch to tell me if an item is worth a look. If something is particularly strokeable, I’ll haul it out for closer inspection.
When my fingers brushed over this chestnut pelt, I held on tight and refused to let go until it was mine. Faux furs are something I always look out for on my thrifty adventures and this fabulous find didn’t disappoint. At £7.99 it was a little more than I usually pay when I’m second hand shopping, but how could I leave it behind?
However, dear followers, I have a problem. A habit, if you will. You see, I have rather too many coats and jackets. From leather to wool to military to classic, I have outerwear for every occasion. My coat rack is groaning under the strain. Do I really need another?
After spending a chilly, frosty morning swathed in my new prize, I can say with much conviction – yes, yes I do. This one’s not going anywhere.
