Well, it goes without saying that my wardrobe wishlist will always include Ossie Clark, Celia Birtwell, Lee Bender for Bus Stop, Jean Muir and Yves Saint Laurent, but on a day to day wearability basis, I need to look for basics that are there when you want them-but not necessarily a favourite, as such.
Well, the said wishlist had included a plain black leather jacket, so I was pleased when I found this last week in Sue Ryder for £5.75. It is by Mango, one of my favourite high street shops and will go with virtually anything. It is supersoft and very light-unlike my previous black leather jacket, which was an 80's vintage biker jacket. I loved it, and still love that look, but some vintage can be very heavy.
Another item which I need is a decent denim skirt. I bought one at the boot sale last week, which was a good fit and style, but the streaks and fading put on the denim made it look cheap and chavvy so it went to in the bag for the charity shop.
I organised my wardrobe this morning, so I can clearly see all day to day basics-jeans, t shirts and everyday tops and blouses. Apart from the denim skirt, my wardrobe is in quite good shape-I have a number of summer dresses and jackets already, so I'm prepared for the heatwave-whenever that may be!!
