    Hello my lovelies….hope EVERYONE’S well today xx

    It’s overcast and drizzly this morning, so I decided to go walkies…just bra, forms, panties, jumper, black leggings, red ankle boots, topped with black parka and my little red umbrella…minimum make up, after all, hood up and mask available…no brainer!!!!

    So I’m wandering around town and then I saw it…..in the heart foundation charity shop window….a full length mirror…always wanted one for my hallway….it’s about two foot wide and five foot high ( yes, I still work in old money, this girl still thinks metres are for gas and electric ) in a beautifully sculpted pine frame….£20!!. Two choices grace…go home, drab up and hurry back…and it will be gone for sure…or ( what would Laura Lovett do ??)…yes, I put on my mask, ( only because it’s the law ) went in, and bought it….ok, you could only see my eyes!!….but the guy who served me never batted an eyelid, was very polite….and even  carried it to the door for me…haha…it’s now stood in my hall and I was doing a little dance in front of it before I sat down to write this….. that’s my morning…

    Now if you were in my boot’s, and it was something you desperately wanted…..would you go in???

    Happy weekend!!…..grace xx

      “In your boots….” Grab it while you can girl!!! It is our time and money, we will do with it, what and how we damn well please.

      I myself have started to get past the “what others would think” thingy. We only live once (as far I I know), so make sure we actually LIVE while we are here.

      Hugs, MaryAnn.

      Hello Grace,

       

      You absolutely made the right choice.  Every time you use that mirror you will become more empowered. Go girl. Enjoy.

      As I haven’t fully been out as a female I’ll say no, I’m still just wearing clothes that would pass all but the closest scrutiny (although the bright nail polish and neon pink face mask probably isn’t fooling anyone ;p)

      Everytime I read a story like yours though I feel a teensy bit braver.

      We do however have a mirror much the same as yours hanging on our closet door (it’s my wifes and she’s had since she was a little girl)

      Glad you’ve found a safe place filled with treasure!

      Hi Grace,

      I absolutely would go in and get it.

      I have been out twice this year shopping and have had no reaction from people.

      The sales associates were very helpful and kind.

      I am glad you got a nice full length mirror I need to get one myself.

      good purchase.

      Glad you goy out too.

      Patty

      No offense to you US girls.. honestly no offense … but did you?  Are you sure it was not filmed in a parking lot?   Just to get at the Ruskies?  Ask yourselves the question –  why hasn’t anyone been back?  What about the lack of stars in the background and the shadows pointing the wrong way?

      Now… the Titanic . Oh yes that’s my favourite ….. and Richard the 3rd and his hunchback.   I do love a good conspiracy theory.  I hardly dare mention covid, so I won’t.

      But I have had three pints of Old Rosie still cider  (8.2% ) down at the Green Man pub this afternoon so I am not really lucid.  Not very lady like I know, but I did it for my mental health.

      Impulse Shopping!!  The best way to find those small (or not) things that just grab us and scream “Buy Me!”  “Now, Darn It!”.  We have a very nice consignment shop here that donates 25% of all sales to one charity or another. I shop them at least once a month and usually two times a month.  I have found it is the best place to find antique costume jewelry for the lowest prices.  The best deal I have found there was an older watch repairman’s desk that is just awesome.  It has a lot of drawers and they are the thin, shallow type so you can’t overload them with junk, and the original finish still looks beautiful.  It had only been delivered to the shop the morning I found it, and you all know the rule, so it came home with me that day.

        Paula…thanks for your reply..

        probably half the contents of my flat comes from my ” mirror shop”…I’m not tight but people donate stuff that practically new…..why would i go next door and pay four times as much and get all that earth destroying packaging as well!!……also Amanda has this deal going with ” Del Boy” in Peckham, so I can’t shop there anymore.

      Well congratulations Grace, very sensible to buy it on the spot, sounds a bargain sweetie, “those that dither, shake and quiver when they see its gone”. Loving the boots, I bought some tan ones for the winter, and a black parka with a beautiful fluffy trim. So are you admiring every angle of the delightful Grace?. “Mirror mirror on the wall who’s the fairest of them all?”

      “Amanda is” Bloody cheap Chinese counterfeit, Peckham special.

      Ha ha no seriously all girls should have a tall mirror, get bargain well done sweetie

      I would just LUV   to be in your red ankle boots 👠  ———-  but unfortunately  my feet are  about 3 sizes too big.

      Would I go in?   Maybe if it was something I wanted badly enough ——  but most of those sort of things I have to buy online out of embarrassment (blush)  —  I might be tempted. There is a first time for everything and I guess the second time would be easier.  I would probably walk up and down a few times, chickening out,  but then the  “I must have it dopamine”  would kick in and I get reckless.

      Sod it. I don’t care if I’m outed, I must have that emerald green mini-skirt.   It’s just like Grace’s.

      So many times over the years I have seen things I must have. I bought them. Then there is other things I would love to buy while dressed. That more often then not is shoes. But a full length mirror is a good one.

      You made the right choice Grace. The amount of things that I missed from charity shops because I waited too long… I think it’s some unwritten law that if you like an item and don’t buy it straight away, someone else has to grab it before you return. 😀 😀 😀 And I bet you looked very pretty in your outfit too. Will you go back there dressed next time too? 🙂

        Thanks Krissi

        That damn unwritten law had destroyed so many dreams….it’s not catching me out again… and yes, grace will be visiting the shop again, it’s full of dreamy prices!!!..to grace it’s 1% this “passing” myth, and 99% having the nerve….if you pick a great place like a charity shop, the people are usually lovely…and in that environment, I really don’t care……it’s safe….
