Where: Abandoned house
With: Miss Selfridge trench coat, Next bag (about ten years old)
I should probably begin this post by admitting that the house in these photos isn’t actually haunted. Or not that I know of, anyway. It just looks like it is, which is good enough for me: as you may have gathered from my shoe challenge set in the old mental hospital last week, I’m fascinated by old, abandoned buildings, and there’s certainly no shortage of them around here. This one is right in the middle of town, set on top of a hill in the middle of beautiful parkland, and with a view right over the centre of town and out to the hills beyond. Sadly, it’s been allowed to fall into a horrible state of disrepair, so I suspect its days are numbered…
These shoes are the sisters of the pink ones I wore back in March, and are close cousins of the navy ones I wore to death this summer. I’ve had to restrain myself from buying them in a bunch of other colours, too: I think three pairs is more than enough for one Shoeperwoman, so I’m resolutely ignoring them every time they pop up on the New Look website. Let’s just see how long that lasts.
This coat was actually free: I got it with some gift vouchers I won this Spring, and it instantly became one of my favourite pieces of clothing. I’m doing my best to get some extra wear out of it this month, before it gets too cold for trench coats altogether.
Oh, and the sunglasses are an ancient cheap pair from God knows where, which I found in the glove box of the car – once again, the weather totally changed en route to our destination! I have very light-sensitive eyes, so there are always a few pairs of sunglasses floating around my car/handbags/any house I happen to be inhabiting at the time.
