I went shoe shopping this week.  I got a pair of shiny black oxfords for work, a pair of red flats, a pair of REALLY RIDICULOUS heels, and a pair of awesome open-fronted boots for $50 at the local cheap shoe emporium.

Charity shop haul over the last two weeks: total of around 25

large navy with white dots barrel handbag - ideal for work
black bootcut jeans with silver embroidery on back and front pockets - ideal for work Christmas lunch
white vintage-style trainers (similar to what Rose Tyler wears in Dr Who) - perfect for the school run
heeled black boots - for going out
wedge-heel black boots - perfect for work
beautiful patchwork/sari-pattern printed scarf for me
bright blue scarf/snood for child
chocolate suede (treated I think) men's jacket - loads of large pockets so perfect for the school run when I don't want to cart a handbag around
witch's Halloween dress, and evening bag for child to wear to her school disco
doll for child - not Barbie but a similar type
Children are natural mimics; they act like their parents in spite of every effort to teach them good manners.

Earlier this week, I stopped at one of my favorite thrift shops that basically only does name brands. 

Ralph Lauren black jeans that work as dress slacks - $5
Ralph Lauren black sweater long sleeve - $5
Long (almost to my ankles) black leather skirt - $5

Apparently. I was channeling my inner Johnny Cash that day.

Scored an Anne Klein suit for $5. I need to hem the slacks, but otherwise, it fits perfectly.
