Longer lengths and looser silhouettes are on my mind right now. Why is that undone style so enticing? There was a vintage kilo sale in the city centre the other day so I headed in, elbows at the ready, and struck gold in the form of this Prince of Wales check shirtdress. Pretty darn hideous as a dress for me, but roll up the sleeves a touch, undo the buttons, and you have the perfect vintage duster coat for Autumn. And finally I can satisfy my cravings for a very of this season item without the guilt of having spent a small fortune on a coat that won’t keep me warm at all through the Manchester winter! Sometimes shopping can be oh so satisfying.
