Christmas Windows and Charity Shopping Part 2 (of 2).

Finally I’ve managed write part 2 of this post from Tuesday. I spent that afternoon exploring the above and I bought an amazing leather / fur jacket from a charity shop in Rathmines. I did um and ah for about two hours before I plumped for it; as you may have read, I am at odds with myself as to whether or not vintage is more acceptable (to my own conciousness). Though the fact that I was buying from a charity shop definitely added to the pro-vintage argument!

So this eve I am taking the long walk over to the O2 Dublin to see the best thing to come out of Sheffield since The Full Monty. The Arctic Monkeys usually give a decent enough performance so I’m sure I’ll be jumping around in my new fur and showing it a good old time. I actually got dressed and ready to go kind of early, which NEVER happens. So I’ve taken a few snaps before I run to, a. save me trying to describe the beige leather & fur combo or the brown press-studs.  And b. to prevent my friends from having any unnecessary heart-attacks from my actually being on time!

    I love the jacket and I also have some issues over Vintage/Charity/Second Hand..
    I think that the Charity shops are fine because the clothes have been donated. The Charity gets an income so that’s a win/win I don’t like the crop of ‘Swap shops’ that pay measly amounts of money to the sellers and charge ridiculous amounts of money to the public. Hope you enjoyed the Arctic Monkeys!

      Thanks ladies.
      Nicky, I never thought about swap shops like that before. It’s very interesting, I’ve never actually been to one and had no idea that shoppers are charged a fortune. I was in a shop in Dublin that re-sells designer only pieces and I was shocked at the prices they were charging for second-hand clothes and even shoes… I was surprised to think that women would pay those prices for second-hand clobber, especially in such a small and image concious city like Dublin. (p.s. Arctic Monkey were super, ta!)
      Debbie, I know what you mean about the eye lashes, I was tres impressed with Kelly Osbourne’s attempt last week, I’m just not sure I’m brave enough… yet! Just gimme time! 🙂

    I love the fur/leather jacket, sparkly top goes together fantastically – very Biba make-up, but Whisty, come on!!!! paint those fabulous eye lashes on for the complete look. I love that you have brought together 2 opposites (60’s and 70’s) and made them not only work, but, your own. Fab Fab Fab
