Last weeks thrift find and my Birthday present

Last week I found a quite a few pieces, some for the vintage fair and some for me!



One of the items for me was this H&M and Comme des Garcons polka dot ladies shirt which I'll wear  this summer open, with a cami vest underneath and some shorts:


I love finding rarer designer and high street collaborations and as I am a fan of Comme des Garcons too, this is certainly a keeper for me



I tried to make it a rule that I wouldn't buy personal items at the Vintage Fashion Fairs, but what a stupid rule-as soon as you set yourself fashion boundaries, they do tend to fall quite easily-well with me anyway, lol!!



As its my birthday this weekend, when I saw this gorgeous wool quilted vintage Jaeger jacket at Primrose Hill, I had to have it so hubby agreed it could be my birthday present.



I love the gold stitching and ric rac and also the colour and aztec design. It is wool and very light and I'll definitely be wearing it this weekend!



Hope you all have a lovely weekend, the weather is so unpredictable here at the moment, so I hope to dodge the rain and stay in the sunshine!!

Feliz Cumpleanos a ti mi querida amiga!
Happy birthday my dear and many more healthy and fun ones to come.
The H&M and Comme des Garcons polka dot ladies shirt is quite a steal for £2.99. The jacket is very much in with the ethnic trend and the mixture of shades of greens and browns is very cool.
Have a wondeful weekend

Happy Birthday, Sharon!
That blouse is lovely and that Jaeger jacket is exceptional, I'd have bought that in a heartbeat.
It's not too bad here today, a bit chilly but dry. Tomorrow looks awful for our canal boat festival! xxx
