Charity shop gold.

Cat jumper

I hit charity shop gold in York during my recent visit. Electric blue lambswool vintage jumper printed with black cats? In perfect condition? Only £3.49? Oh hale yes. It's definitely my new favourite jumper, I like to think it has echoes of Sonia Rykiel and is maybe something Joni from Mad Men might wear on a Saturday when she's home alone doing her nails. Definitely not crazy cat lady. OK? (Although it is perfect for wearing when tickling the little black cat in your life.)

  3. Dear Caroline, I love it and it's very Sonia! What a great bargain. I also love your very tidy bookshelves. Lovely picture of you by the way. In a moment of madness and going blank on what to blog I post some old party pictures, I'm not sure that was a good idea. Hope all's good with you xx

  4. Way awesome. Kind of think it would look awesome with a big side-ponytail :)

  8. Aw thanks dudes, you're all lovely. I'd just washed my hair in soap at the gym which was adding to the crazy cat lady effect but I don't let details like that stop me.

    Abby - love a side ponytail, in for a penny in for a pound, I'm going to try it.

    Can't wait to check out your party pics Christina, I know they're going to be legendary!

    Sarah - apartment post - hmm, maybe I will, seeing as I'm going to move soon!

  9. Oh and convo - yes a whistle necklace from Whistles. Present from Ma, she always gives me whistles as self protection devices. haha! Saw a great bejewelled whistle recently in an antique shop in Hampstead, should've bought it...

  14. You lucky thing, that's brilliant! I haven't had a good charity shop find in a while (bloody work has been sucking up all my free time), but now I've got two days off and have been inspired I'll definitely be on the search... x
