Fuchsia Rules

During my involuntary break I realised that I missed my blog and taking my own pictures. And I felt weird leaving comments on the other blogs with that black "stop sign" instead of my profile photo.
I'm not sure if I fixed everything yet but I'm hopeful.
Anyway, in honor of the third anniversary of the Faux Fuchsia blog I'm wearing my new-to-me fuchsia coat that I "sourced" at my favorite second-hand store. As soon as I saw it I knew I had to have it.

I looked it up on the internet. Claude Havrey have a lovely selection of trench coats. Looks like they've been around for a while, I found lots of ebay listings for "vintage havrey". So I consider it a real score (even with the price tag of NIS 250 which is US 73-ish, not your normal thrift store price. Good thing I had some store credit).

The coat is spotless and in perfect condition.

And in the spirit of mixing high and low, I'm wearing my Dexter booties from Payless. I was looking for a comfy wedge bootie for rainy weather and I found it.

Second-hand finds that day included two other items that will appear on this blog eventually. In the meantime, I'm so happy to be back and I hope that it lasts.

Happy Friday, everybody.
