The Barbour Set

Not only is the Barbour Jacket worn by members of the British Royal Family it is also the essential rainwear for places such as Glastonbury, which of course isn't Glastonbury without mud and never ending rain!!

In March, I scored an as new, Barbour Bedale Jacket at the boot sale for only £8!! The full retail price is around £180, so I was very pleased indeed!! This is ideal for British weather, but the above photo is only a photo shoot, I'm not wearing this in August and I'm definitely not taking it to Eastbourne! As much as I love it, I can't bear the thought of wearing a rain jacket in August! So with this thought in mind, it was just as well I scored this lovely Barbour Gilet (Vest) last week at the boot sale for £3!! Now this I can bear to wear at the moment, as long as I have a brolly too! Plus, I can wear this under the Bedale in winter as an extra layer!


Of course, the Barbour is an all purpose, all function jacket-when I say all function, Lily is taking this literally by wearing hers as an evening coat!! I love people who rock things their way!

Jackets like this are a mainstay here in Northern California in Fall and Winter, since it rains soooo much (rain is our snow, since we get snow only up in the mountains).

I love your blog! I'm crazy about vintage style too, though I can't fit into most of them,lol! I do have a fab collection of vintage handbags, though (they're pretty much all I use).

I added a link to your blog on mine ... if you don't mind? :o)
