For those celebrating, I hope you've had/are having a wonderful Yuletide. I know I've enjoyed some special family time this year.

This black wool coat is a great thrifted find. It was in excellent condition, with only a ripped pocket lining. The shoulders were a little wide for me, but I got brave and did some research, opened the lining and took them in a little. I'm quite pleased with the results. It wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be. 

I've developed a soft spot for deep, dusty purple in recent years. This is an older smocked dress from ASOS. It's one of my favorites and it's ideal for layering with coats or jackets. With exceptions like this aubergine dress, my wardrobe has shifted to mostly second-hand items. I plan on keeping up this trend in the future. Its economic, greener, and I find second-hand shopping a lot of fun.
