New Finds

I wish I had something new and interesting to report. Well, pardon me for using such a cliche, but I guess no news is good news. Except some shopping haul news which are almost never bad.
So I'll get right down to it.
As usual, Zara didn't disappoint. This black top was not on sale but the regular price was not deadly. It has snakeskin-like pattern but you have to really squint to see it in this photo. It looks perfect with skinny jeans and heels. They also had it in white but I didn't love it as much as the black version. Haven't worn it yet, maybe tomorrow.

And this off-white bag\clutch was on sale for about 16 bucks. It had a couple of smudges but I decided to risk it anyway. Came home, cleaned the bag with a regular wet wipe and the smudges disappeared. Score!

I really love the black and white trend. I might get myself a stripey jeans or\and a shirt. But I'll be looking at H&M rather than Zara. Put that on my list.

But the jewel of all good finds was waiting for me yesterday at the secondhand store. I went there just to have a look and found a classic coat. I've been looking for a coat like this for ages. It's old but new, I don't think it was worn much if at all. The lady at the store said that the coat "comes from a very good home".

These are the labels. I tried to look it up and found a "Jonelle cashmere jumper" from the 70s. I guess this coat is from the 70s too. And where can you find a coat made in England for a mere 50 dollars? It's not exactly a thrift-shop price but I'll have it forever. Just have to go buy some non-stinky mothballs.

Now I'm praying for a cold spell so that I can wear my coat. But in Israel in March that would be a real miracle. Oh well, better luck next year. I'm happy anyway!
