Mod ♥



I am absolutely delighted with my most recent charity shop 'haul'! It included this gorgeous red coat (extra happy because its nearly the same style as the one I fell in love with back in this post!!). It has a cute peter-pan collar, a flattering shape, and gold buttons - & you definitely can't go wrong with gold buttons! All for a mere £6.50. Kerching.

And I also found this 60s style tunic for £3. When I saw it hanging there in all of its silky geometric glory, I knew it had to be mine. ♥

I am so attracted to the 60s mod look. There is just something about it that makes me want to purge my wardrobe of anything modern and replace it with A-line mini dresses and patterned shirts.






^ This was the view out of my window when I woke up a few mornings ago. Despite my half asleep state, I just HAD to take a picture of it. I've never seen the sky like this in the morning - although that might be because I'm usually asleep!

P.S. I've got an amazing Christmas giveaway coming up in the next post!!

I'm so happy you found that coat! I remember when you posted about the black vs. red dilemma, I wanted you to keep the red simply because you said you loved it. But I think this thrifted coat is even better and is very lucky to receive lots of love from you!

Really cute look.

Where are your shoes? I'm curious what you picked for your feet.

The coat is really amazing!

Amelia said...

I'm definitely into the 60s mod look right now! What a great jacket.

Kb said...

Wow such bargains. I'm a much more remote thrifter, I found a cheap coat on eBay for £3 that looks like it cost more. That's what I love about second-hand stuff.

Sahakiel said...

Wonderful, that hat is lovely! And wooow... what a great landscape!

Thanks so much for stopping by and for your lovely comment!

You look absolutely adorable, I love this dress!!

It's funny cause our blog name is from a Joanna Newson's song and one of her song is called Sadie :)
