Sales Shopping

I said I wouldn’t do it this year but………….

I dragged my sister out yesterday with me as the other Wornout ladies were busy.

Ahhh my sister! My sister is very good at helping me shop. I can be sure at least one of the following stock sales shopping statements will be muttered by her during our expedition together:

Adopt sisterly voice.

1. Put those back, they are vile.
2. You are too old for (insert item name)
3. Where do you think you are going in that?
4. Can we now stop for tea and cake please? I’m done.

I still love her very much.

I’m pleased to say all my outfit today was either purchased in sale or with discount.

Happy sales shopping to you all.

Acne Pistols
Citizens of Humanity jeans (still too short for supposedly longer length jeans)

Joseph Navy poncho
Gerard Darel grey 24 hour bag
Gerard Darel Gloves and beanie.
RayBan Jackie O Sunglasses
Lots of thermals


If the Choo’s fit….

Yipppeeee! I made last week’s mini worn out meet up and what fun we had. Lunch, drinks, shopping and conversation. A blissful afternoon. Can we do it again soon?

Usually I carry a pair of flats to comfort my feet. No swapping into flats on the long journey home this time. My new ankle boots kept my feet happy for the whole day.

The Jimmy Choo Mayor suede ankle boots had their second outing tonight. A rare night out with DH. I will wear these boots forever. They are so very comfortable, have limited ankle gape and are just the right wedge heel height to avoid the giraffe look.

No Opaque Friday

That’s right. You saw it here first. No opaques today. Yeeeeeee-ha hippy hi hum, Summer here we come.

I am that person you see at the train station wearing a woolly hat and scarf in what we deem to be warmer months, May, June and yes I admit to stretching winter woollies into July.

I just don’t do cold and the outside temperature must be 30c plus (for me) to feel warm but today does not require the warm and trusted opaques.

I have been searching for this coat in my size for ages. I found my normal size in the sale just after the New Year but it was way too big. Told you Gerard Darel is a generous fit. Anyway, arriving home last night to find a delivery, no red roses for me but the GD in my size, all wrapped up for V day!

Gerard Darel Military coat

Joseph Cashair cobalt blue jumper with an American Vintage Navy vest worn underneath – the Jumper is quite sheer.

Joseph Cashmere pink scarf (very old), similar here.

Joseph Rocker boot cut trouser in Navy (part of a suit)

LK Bennett Una Leopard print heels, high but oh so comfortable.

Sam Edelman black suede shoeboots, worn on the walk to work. I swapped to the LKB Unas in the office. Lovely shoeboots by the way. Can’t remember the name, help me oh fellow readers, but the Sam Edelman Salinas are very similar.

Bag is the luxurious Symthson Cooper Tote Tote.

Have a great weekend, the Sun might be out tomorrow.






Autumn Leather

No tugging? Tick

No powdering of thigh/ankle/calf or toes? Tick

No need for wire hangers to pull them on? Tick

Wearability? As much as possible.

I’ve added my comfy discounted DVF shoesMichael Kors clutch (bought in the sale from My wardrobe.com)  Joseph Stevie powder pink silk top (heavily reduced as there was a mark on it.) The mark has now gone thanks to the local dry cleaners) and TopShop plum jacket (not shown).  I was due to wear this Reiss top but as usual I was rushing to get out of the house so I’ll save it for another outing.
