I suddenly realised that I have let myself go a bit just lately, and looked much the same as the before version on the tele. Today I decided to do something about it, a visit to a few charity shops should kit me out with some bright new clobber. My friend was delighted when I told her, she said, you always wear baggy clothes, which is true, I like to be comfy. It was my intention to get some colour into my life instead of the drab dark clothes I usually wear.
Anyway, the Oxfam shop had a sign up saying all clothes 50p, I went through all the racks, and found this, a nearly new fleecy jacket. Perfect and what a bargain.
Then I went to the Scope shop and found another bargain, just what I want, another pair of walking boots. I tried them on, perfect, well broken in by the previous owner, so hopefully no blisters for me. A snip at only £2.I also found another nice jacket, a bit thicker than the other one, perfect for dog walking in, almost new and a good make. At £3.50 I felt it was good value.
I also bought a pair of brown cord trousers for £3, very smart. When I got home I found that both the jackets are reversible, so that's a bonus. So that's me kitted out for winter.
My new image looks like it is not going to materialise just yet, I just can't find anything that is cheap and fashionable, and warm and comfortable. I am not much good at clothes shopping :-(
