Shiny, shiny, shiny



It's been raining here in the last couple of days which means that I've finally been able to wear the red vinyl raincoat I bought at a charity shop in the UK. I took these pictures quickly during a break in the rain. 


Beret: Op shopped
Raincoat: Sue Ryder charity shop, Haworth
Dress (peeking out under the coat): Trademe
Shoes: Hunters and Collectors


The weird expression on my face is because I'm overcome with excitement about the pockets, obviously
P.S. I'm having a stall at Anissa Victoria's Vintage on Saturday from 12pm to 3pm at the Sandridge Hotel, 30 Huxley St.

  2. Super, I need one of these really. I have broken so many umbrellas here that this would be best for me to have. Will have to keep an eye out for one. You look super, the colour suits you too :) Have a gorgeous weekend x

  3. What a fabulous mac, you look so sweet in it! Brilliant find, I'd have had to fight you for it if we'd been in the same shop.
    Wishing loads of luck with your sales! xxx

    1. Thanks! Ha, funnily enough, I thought I was going to have to fight the ladies in the shop for it. They didn't seem to want to sell it to me. They said they kept trying it on in the hope it would fit them.
      Thanks! It went well.

    1. Ha, it would've been quite the brawl in the charity shop. Oh yes, Vix's clear polka dot one looks fab.

    1. I know! I love things with pockets.
      Ha, I was more excited about the charity shops than the Bronte sisters when I went to Haworth.
      Thanks. It went well.
