Unfortunately, its a nay for the moment, as I'm not able to get back to get the purchase!! Things are hectic at home, as all male members of the family are sick and off school, I've been doing chores for my mum where she is still recouperating from a broken ankle and our car is out of action-temporarily but maybe permanently if we can't get it fixed.
With so much going on, if I get back to the charity shop this week, I'll be lucky if its still there-watch this space, haha!
But, if it is, the ideas I've had are better than the original that I had planned:
Cal suggested wearing it with a cardi over the top like Sal at Always Pretty or with a thick scarf
Marian suggested wearing it under a floaty dress, or with a chiffon blouse and tailored slacks, or like she did, with a leather jacket over the top and a vintage satin skirt.
Couture Allure Vintage fashion suggested wearing it as a wide belt too!!
Thanks for all your suggestions, I'll let you know if I strike lucky with one soon!
