Fashionable Greys

This little spread fits my mood just perfectly this week with the cold and rain returning.

Now that I don't go out much and partake in one of my favourite activities (window shopping) I browse the internet for inspiration when the seasons change. I usually find something in my closet that is similar to whatever's in fashion. But I did eye this website with some great sales.

Usually I pretty much wear the same old 'Mum' uniform, but unfortunately barely anything in my closet fits me because I've 'gasp' put on weight.

Luckily, hubby is working on a church in the city this past couple of weeks and found a thrift shop nearby with a sale. He scored big time. 3 shirts $1 from Prada, Banana Republic & Zara. 2 suits, $15 and $10 from Ralph Lauren and Brooks Bros. 2 Jackets by Prada and Banana Republic and 4 pants by all of the above for just $12. I'm going in with him tomorrow have a look around but I may have missed out, he said the racks were almost cleared today (don't worry they're restocking :)) There are some great thrift shops around New York, but I've never seen those kinds of prices on designer. This store is clearance everything to renovate.
