I've just got in from dinner with friends and am now sitting watching Poirot (The ABC Murders) and drinking a cheeky wee snifter of Baileys. It's pouring with rain which is quickly clearing the snow and ice outside. Now that was quite the surprise on Sunday when we arrived home from a quick over-nighter in Devon visiting these mad munkins
It makes such a difference to find myself working for somewhere that has a clear, sympathetic and sensible bad weather policy rather than somewhere that didn't give a shit about how bad the weather might be or how dangerous/impossible it might be for you to travel to and from work.
Anyway I digress, November purchases.
I did do a little Black Friday buying. Collectif had a 30% off so I finally succumbed to a dress I have been stalking for just over a year. It went out of stock and is now back in stock just in time for me to use the discount - huzzah!
The arrival of my order was like deja vu. 3 dresses all purporting to be the same size, one slightly too big, one spot on and one so small I couldn't even get in it!?!
My conclusion - Collectif really are shit when it comes to sizing.
It is all the more frustrating when you have to pay postage for returns or exchanges. It's not like they have a mammoth stock either so why they can't measure each style like many other websites is beyond me, come on Collectif get your act together!
Anyway at least the above dress was the one that was spot on
Talking of Hell Bunny they also had a Black Friday deal with certain dresses at 50% off so again I gave in and bought one I have been dithering over for a while
Finally I bought 2 brooches. This one was another black friday sale purchase, this time from the fab Luxulite
perfect for the run up to Christmas and then beyond because frankly I'll wear gold glitter any time of year!
Finally I commissioned this brooch from Cherryloco Jewelery. I have bought a few pieces from them over the years and love the quirky designs and the fact you can request and design custom pieces.
Anyway there you have the November purchases I do feel a bit naughty spending on me at this time of year but what is done is done.....
I have a few more outings lined up before the C word including the new Star Wars of course!
I'll leave you with this arty shot taken from our back garden by Himslef of November's super moon
