    ^ Oh dear ... images seem to be broken again? Or I guess it's just editing to add an image that doesn't work ...

    ^ For sure :wink: Hopefully you can see the mesh and stitching detail. It's a bit hard to discern because it's ... all black :smartass:

    Hello, everyone :smile: long time no see! I have moved houses in November and then this pandemic settled which means my life has been a bit hectic...

    I wore Ta-ta's Burberry nearly the whole winter :heart: I will be sending you a private message with a photo! I also haven't shopped a lot for the past couple of months, although I have bought a couple of things this summer's sales... despite the fact I've been in home isolation since early March.

    Here's some pics of what I've bought since last time :smile:

    These two dresses I bought during the winter and have been lovely. Our winter wasn't too harsh and I was able to layer them nicely.

    Some knits. The grey one is very chunky and cosy. I've worn everything often and the cardigan and grey jumper I even worn before I gave up on getting dressed to WfH :rolleyes: the striped one was complimented often.

    I had wanted these trainers for ages, then suddenly they had like a 50% discount. Sadly I bought them in February which means I've worn them twice.

    These two I've bought since the isolation and have worn. The yellow raincoat for some walks with my dog, the black top for when I need to go shopping, to the dentist, etc. The smock cut is very comfortable.

    Now for the totally unworn (they have arrived within the last two weeks)...

    The long sleeved shirt was on my wishlist for MONTHS and had sold out; suddenly it became available again, on sale (!!!) so I had to have it. The snake print dress seems lovely and breezy for the very few outings I'll be doing this summer (the dentist - I got braces in November! -, etc). The yellow striped blouse is similar to a style I'd seen in the past, but which was in polyester (this one is cotton/linen mix).

    The sandals are Les Tropeziennes which I've read wonders about and shall also be nice for the few errands I'll be running in the summer. I also found that 8 by Yoox coat with a SUPER nice discount, and ordered it on Thursday! And since I got a cat and a dog with fur in a similar colour last winter, I guess it'll be a good addition... rather than my black winter coat :wink:

    So these are all my buys since I last posted! Not so bad for 8-9 months, right?

    I hope everyone is doing well and is safe and healthy.

    ^ Glad to hear you're enjoying the trench! I too have shoes (and a few other things) I haven't worn yet. Today I'm wearing a new top I got for the heat of the summer, which is now upon us ... 100 degree days are common now. I got a couple new protest Ts ... let's see what else since I posted last ...

    Your pearl grey sweater looks really pretty, and I like the smock top too.

    Right now I'm shopping for some earrings that work better with masks--in particular, the elastic strings. All of mine are either large hoops or hook style, and the strings either get caught in them, or pull them out. I may have some customized a bit ... waiting for a quote.

    I've gotten some loungewear and athleisure pieces, and I seem to be collecting colored jeans. T-shirt dresses are nice for days when I'm working but don't have any meetings, and I can just throw them in the washer.
