I have 2 Levis denim jackets now and my faded one from River Island. I gave some denim to the charity shop, which included another denim jacket I had and some denim skirts that didn't fit properly. I'd rather look out for some different ones as I'd gone off these items.
The beauty of thrifting means that items can be 'easy come, easy go' without feeling guilty. I had originally spent around £10 for 1 denim jacket and 3 denim skirts that I've now given to the charity shop and they now benefit from my fickleness!!

1. Respond and rework. Answer the questions on your blog, replace one question you dislike with a question of your own invention; add a question of your own.
2. Tag eight other un-tagged people.
What is your current obsession?
Well, now the seasons started, it has to be the boot sales. I went Sunday and scored an authentic Missoni tunic/dress for £3, an American Apperel tee for £1-above, Topshop 'Minnetonka style' suede ankle fringe boots for £4-below, and lots of music CDS to sync onto my I-POD, my other current obsession of the moment!!
Good fika place?(That would be coffee to us non-Swedes)
Well, it would be Costa Coffee or the Marks & Spencer cafe for either a mocha with cream or a cup of Earl Grey tea.
Do you nap a lot? No, I wish I could though!
Who was the last person you hugged? Hubby earlier on the couch!
What’s my favourite dinner? Paella from Aldis-deliciously yummy, with hubbys homemade chips and chinese style spare ribs-not healthy, but sure tastes good!!
What was the last thing you bought? The items from the boot sale that I mentioned above!!
What are you listening to right now? 'If you want it' Ike and Tina Turner, Livin For The City
What is your favourite weather? Hot, hot and more hot sunny weather if you please!!
What's in your bathroom cabinet? Shower gel, shampoo and clearasil lotion--boring essentials!!.
Say something to the person/s who tagged you. Dear Kate, one of my fave bloggers, I'm so pleased you are still in blogworld despite giving up Make Do Style. I'm enjoying reviews of films that I haven't watched yet or haven't heard of-thanks my dear!!
If you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where would you want it to be? Somewhere hot, with lots of scope for self sufficiency!!
Favourite vacation spot? Anywhere, I enjoy different places and experiences.
Name the things you can’t live without. Of course, family is number one, then it has to be thrifting and listening to music, my favourite obssesions of the moment.

What's your favourite brand of jeans? Has to be Levis.
What designer piece of clothing would you most like to own (new or vintage)? A perfect fit, original 80s Alaia dress.
My own question
Would I live my life differently to how I do now? I feel really good about life, I have a lovely family, a great job that doesn't pay much but has advantages such as great holidays and good hours, I indulge in thrifting as often as I choose and I'm happy enough. I'm 40 this year and I can honestly say I'm fine with life thanks.
I'm tagging : Asian Cajuns, Eri, Em-Passion for Fashion, Janet Taylor, La Mimi, La Couturier, Saray and Secretista-thanks ladies!!

Inspired by this gorgeous Bulgari Dahlia, I knew I wanted something similiar, that was a carry style, slightly slouchy and big enough, as I've been buying tiny bags recently.
So, I was pleased to come across this lovely Jasper Conran bag at Debenhams, which had been reduced from £85 to £68, is leather and certainly big enough for all those essentials.
So another item ticked off the wishlist-I think I may have enough bags for the moment, LOL!!
