So today is my last day of unemployment and believe it or not, I did'nt sleep in. I surfed the net and had breakfast early. I ordered three bottles of American Apparel nail polish, (thanks to raves from You Got Nail) and a jersey dress. This brand is overpriced in the UK but I thought, "Screw it-I have a job now!"
I went for a walk to one of my favorite charity shops. It's the British Heart Foundation and I have a good strike rate there. The quality of the stock is well selected, the shop is clean and in order. They even play nice music and offer exchanges for anything you buy. And look what I picked up!
I remember when I first saw Jocasi bags in Selfridges. I was drawn to their colourful worn-in leather but thank goodness I did'nt buy at the time. Their stuff is nice but rather exxy for bags made in Indonesia.
So here is my Jocasi bag which only cost £5. I've always wanted a soft leather cross body bag. It's big enough to fit the essentials, including a little umbrella. The brass hardware is excessively chunky but I think it makes a statement, don't you?
