V A L S , D A R L S: Happy Valentines, ‘Gal’entines Day, ‘Pal’entines Day or whichever one you’re celebrating today 🤎 We tried to keep the Vals tradition alive by eating out and our 3 year old son literally dashed across the restaurant, nearly knocked a table over with me chasing after him as my husband watched in horror. Safe to say, I’m happy to be back home chilling and eating in tonight 😂 Y’all can enjoy. I’m doing Mamantines day in🤷🏾‍♀️😫🤣

OOTD – Mohair Coat

art becomes you mohair coat c done

I’ve been hunting down gorgeous long camel coats for a while now. The best ones I’ve found are either out of stock or have their price mark set up way too high above my means. 

Then the Vintage Fair at the Custard Factory Birmingham happened…

It was raining like crazy but me and Mathew are such vintage enthusiasts that we went anyway. The atmposhphere of the fair was so cool. They had set the room so that you felt like you were proper shopping from a venue in the 20s. All the vintage tea cups, crockery, plates etc. But I skipped breakfast and dove straight into grabbing some thrifted goodies. After lusting after a few pre-owned Chanel bags and pearls, I stumbled upon this baby here. The perfect Mohair coat. In camel for that matter. I had to have it.  We haggled a bit and I got the coat for £40. I was elated! I know how much mohair and wool-blend coats go for so I was dancing my way home. It feels and looks amazing. Plus it’s so warm. This is definitely my best find of the year. Do you love thrift shopping? What was your best find?
